Before I got into fashion, I didn't care about money. Thus, I didn't care about doing well in school so that I could someday find a high-paying job to afford high-end items. I was okay with wearing cheap items from the sales rack. My grades weren't that great, but I really didn't care because the only incentive for doing in well in school for most people seemed to be solely for acquiring money and showing off that money. When I really got into fashion, I started caring more about the clothes I put on my back and what brands I purchased. I started caring about money, so I devised a plan to get to where I want to be. I figured that I should start trying harder in school so that I can earn lots of money someday to purchase all this clothing in the future. I'm just starting out at a local community college at the moment, and I can definitely say I'm a lot more motivated now than I was in high school due to my newfound materialism. There are times when I feel sad that I can't afford more expensive items, but I'm just hoping I'll get to the point of being able to purchase them someday.

I figured I should post this since this is something I've been reflecting on for a while. How do you feel about this?

It's kind of pointing out the obvious, material things cost money, doing well grants you money - money grants you material things /thread

Nah, I do get it. 


Materialism (specifically clothing / an interest in high end clothing) has lead you to try harder, and become more motivated in what you do.

I completely understand, but the way you stated it is a bit confusing, if not alienating.

I think what you meant to say was that you started to understand the reasoning behind these higher clothing prices (e.g. material costs, production, etc.). Because of this, you realized that, most of the time, quality = higher prices. So it's fine to strive to be successful to cop clothes.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Materialism is insane to me. We're  worshiping products another man made.

I'm just saying I used to be the type of kid who'd say "Fuck school," but I'm a guy who actually strives for success in school now. Why? Because I used to stay disinterested in clothing, but I love clothing so much now. That's why I actually have a reason to go after the money now.

You didn't think of the possibility that I'm only throwing around the rep code to make some easy money, brother. Again, don't judge people when you don't know the truth. Did you ever pass fifth grade? You must have been horrible at reading comprehension.

You're the type of disgrace who judges people based on appearance. What if the dude wearing a business suit is actually a homeless guy who got his suit through donations at the homeless shelter? What if the dude rocking a Supreme shirt's actually a homeless orphan who got all his clothes through donations? Obviously, you would label these people this and that because you refuse to think of other possibilities. Don't be close-minded. I'm just saying this for your own good as well as society's own good.

I'm just trying to bring light to the world. I'm trying to clear up the skies, rid the sky of clouds, and let the the sunlight shine through. We live in a world where people think too much with their eyes. They don't even value and respect their eyes. They use their eyes to judge people when they don't even know the truth.

Something about this sounds kind of off to me. You feel sad when you can't afford more expensive items? wearing cool clothing made you want to do good in school? I can't really relate to those priorities, from my perspective I cant really rationalize your train of thought it sounds so surface level and non-sustainable as such a significant priority in your life.
