Go ahead, do as you please. Watch hours of TV every night, until your eyes hurt.
Stay in the town where you went to high school, and keep partying with the same group of people you did in high school.
Get a unchallenging job, and stick with it for decades.
Get a house. Don't get a house. Rent. Live in a cardboard box. It's your choice - whatever you choose, you've got the right to choose that.
Bother to choose, though.
Most people don't bother. It's easier to just follow, to just keep doing what they're doing because it's comfortable, because the neighbors do it, because they've always done it that way.
I don't care what you choose - as long as you bother to choose.
