I'm reclaiming my life. I don't even know what that means, but it occurred to me recently, when I quick shut up and quit singing something in the grocery store. Not because I don't want people in the grocery to think I'm crazy for walking down the aisles singing, but because I don't want them to think that I am so un-hip that I listen to what is basically a kid's group.
I do this all the time. I love things, full fledged and excitedly, and I hide them because I don't think they are cool enough.
It's time to grow up. Like what I like. Embrace who I really am, forget about what everyone else thinks. So, here we go: public announcement.
Five Things I Don't Feel Bad About Liking
1. R5 - I can't help it. They are so catchy and cute and holy crap, I could listen to "Pass Me By" on repeat all day long. I'm even going to forgive them for using "livin' yolo" as a lyric, as if that's a real word. And it's not just about Russ, despite what's going on in #2. It's about the whole sound. It's so happy. Even their sad songs are happy and hopeful. It makes me wanna dance and laugh and throw my hands in the air. I like that, okay? I like feeling like there's something worth smiling about.
2. Austin and Ally - I watch this with Brynna and Maren all the time, and I like it because it's almost never mean, it's cute, Trish is awesome and seriously, adult shows could learn a thing or two about "will they, won't they" from this. They date, they break up. They're in love, they're with other people. He wrote her a love letter, she keeps his flower card. It's crazy. And even though I know, it's Disney, I can't help but stop everything and watch when it's an episode I haven't seen. I even watch when the girls aren't home, shhh. This isn't the only Disney show that I can't seem to turn away from. I also love Good Luck Charlie and Gravity Falls. But nothing is as addictive as Austin and Ally.
Ian Sommerhalder, Jensen Ackles and Seth Rogen. Will someone please explain my type to me.
5. Candy Crush - I have been on level 125 for three weeks. I still can't quit playing. Also, I refuse to link it to Facebook, because of all the game requests, so I have to do quests. Yep. Still sold. I wish I could quit you.
What about you? Willing to share anything you love that maybe sometimes wish you didn't?
