  • high school musical. 'nuff said.
  • Yes quite a few times.....I think the last one must have been Naruto, people would say "dude watch Naruto its really good" and id be like "um no thats such a kids show".....but yeah a few months later and im like a big fan now.....
  • Boy band music. I hated NSync and all those guys. Their songs were catchy but lame. I couldn't take them seriously at all.

    But inexplicably, I've fallen in love with Arashi. The guys, the songs, the random-as-hell tv shows, the concerts, the pvs...everything, really. It's pathetic. If the Backstreet Boys were to sing half of what these guys do, I'd laugh and call it stupid, but for some reason, because it's in Japanese, it's acceptable to me. Hell, it makes me incredibly happy.

    I don't get it.

    Why does it mean less in English? Is it the way that this language expresses sentiment? Japanese lyrics are so different to me. I love English, even with all its limitations. That's why I've studied it and written in it for my whole life.
    But this pop music thing is only acceptable to me in Japanese.

    I really don't get it.

  • No
  • Generally the biggest cliche I have found viable for all people is that of love. Love is probably the biggest cliche of all. It is in that statement that I become a hypocrite. I am in love and stupified. The man I love is none other than my best friend. Cliche one. He is younger than me. Cliche two. Played football. Cliche three. He is a drummer. Cliche four. And is black. Cliche five.

    Cliche one. Exactly how many girls go goo-goo for the falling for the best friend bit? That's right, all of them. I have had the luxury of having such a thing happen.
    Cliche two. It has become recently popular to date men younger than yourself. While this current cliche isn't as extreme for me as others, only being months younger than myself, instead of years, I believe that it still counts.
    Cliche three. I'm a nerd. He's an ex-jock. Need I say more?
    Cliche four. C'mon guys! A drummer! 
    Cliche five. This does not apply to me as much as it does him. I'm a kind of fat white girl. He's black. It was destiny. Sorry if that offended anyone, but there is always some form of truth to stereotypes.

    So before I met him, I was a typical cynical female. Guys aren't worth it, love is statistically impossible, love is a synonym for weak. Blah, blah, blah. Now I get mushy just thinking about him, and to be perfectly honest I have already imagined us having kids and named them. Right now, in my dreams, it's their first day of kindergarten. And for some reason, there are three of them.

  • You'll laugh, I did, but Myspace. It's a royal pain in the ass to maintain but I do love the customizability of it. I have a Facebook too and it is nice, but it's so impersonal. Myspace has actually been a good way to keep in touch w/online friends more than anything, like the ones I meet playing MMOs. All their messages aren't crowding your e-mail inbox, and it's not as on-hand and personal as handing out your cell phone #. After avoiding it for years as a stupid "in-crowd" trend I finally made one because a lot of my family was on there and insisted I make one too. As previously stated, I can't complain cos I actually ended up liking it, and it served to teach me to try other "cliche" things too. You never really know what you're gonna like or dislike, and even if you don't like something at least you tried and you have something else to talk about w/ppl down the road.

    i used to hate the whole gossip girl mania, and thought it was a load of crap, but it's actually amazing!  i can't wait for season 2 on dvd (:

  • Being a domesticated female. By that, I mean doing things that I considered "house wife" like: baking bread, making jam, sewing clothes, knitting, crocheting, making complicated meals. I do all that stuff, now, and I enjoy it. Really. I think my major problem with the idea of doing "house wife" stuff is that it never occured to me that someone could like doing these things in real life. So, I guess it's a good thing that I tried them and enjoy them. It makes me a more open minded person, really.
