Remember that time you were punk? Like, really, really into the idea: rejecting every established norm, living at the bar, and just doing things to do them. Although I came into the world two years before the Berlin Wall was destroyed, when I discovered punk culture in the late 90s, almost every idea I encountered stuck with me—the rejection of the majority, the music industry, the establishment,  utopian fantasies and, primarily, just being myself, ...
