Easy. Just say that you find [insert opinion] aesthetically pleasing and beauty is what you value the most.
Beauty is the most divine thing on earth. Order stands in defiance of entropy. And beaty is patterns and therefore order. The creation of life itself requires very specific conditions and is therefore unlikely, yet it happened. Aesthetics like a are a reflection and imitation of those unlikely circumstances. Therefore beauty is divine and whatever opinion I have is justified because I arrange all my thinking so that it pleases my sense of aesthetics.

Of course not. Contractions don't belong in formal writing, and "it is" doesn't belong in dialog unless it's being used for emphasis, or to sound deliberately archaic or formal.

>>12667698
No, that's "its" (without the apostrophe).

IT/CS/whatever you mutts call it major here
I eternally regret not studying philosophy, literature, anthropology instead. Might say fuck it and stop studying this soul consuming NPC garbage. Imagine studying something you hate every day. That's me. Imagine studying something you love every day. That's probably you AND I WISH IT WAS ME TOO.

I am incredibly impressionable. Chad memes are able to convince of what type of life I should live. Books for this vapid man feel?
