I decided to participate in the lovely Tom Baker’s 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty And One Dare blog event. At first, I was hesitant (the honesty bit is easy, the commitment 30 days requires, not so) but life is too short to not try things and if you are willing to support me then here we go:
Day 01: The one thing that it seems like everyone else on the planet is into but I just cannot stand is…
WTH what is it that the whole planet is into that I am also into? I suck at following trends, I really do. I wish I’m doing it on purpose, but I’m not. I always have the taste for the weird, the different, or maybe the extraordinary.
I really don’t know but in a way I’m glad because this guarantees I am living my life for me and on my own terms and not because I am trying to be a part of something else or to impress anyone by going with the crowd. I don’t like that. I don’t care if I end up the odd one out as long as it is my choice.
So to name a few things that the planet is into and where I’m out, let’s start with Twitter. A few weeks ago, I received an SMS from denoy late at night (at least for me :lol:) and he was asking why I was not on Twitter. He said he looked for me but nothing. Oh well, I’ll never join Twitter. Is that a bold claim or what? It’s just too mainstream for me. Besides I like WordPress and I’m too entwined with my blog to even consider running another online account.
Another is The Hunger Games. I may be stoned to death for this but… I have no interest in reading the book or watching the series. I see it everywhere and for sure you do too and it is remarkable how I am suffocated by it when I’m not even indulging on it! 🙄 Many times I stumble upon blog friends raving over it and I’m really glad they are enjoying something, but I find great relief in the fact that what other people enjoy does not always have to be the same as mine and it is okay. In fact, I think it is cool because we can always share something new and fresh with each other, don’t you agree?
