(I'm kinda obsessed with Relient K right now if you hadn't noticed..
It seems like the most important thing now days, is doing what everyone else is doing. I'm fairly certain that this has always been relatively true though.
I have a bone to pick with society though. You see, there's something programmed into me, that if I didn't get to a book series, a movie, a style before it became the "big thing", I literally don't have the ability to like it, or at the very least love it. I simply cannot obsess over something that millions of people are already obsessing over.
This is why I don't like One Direction very much. I have nothing against their music. I find it quite catchy actually, but something inside me holds me from really enjoying them.
Some other examples:
~Twilight~ Personally I just think the books and movies are trash simply because the books are terribly written and there is no good message in them what so ever. I doubt I would enjoy this series even if it wasn't famous.
~Harry Potter~ Honestly, I really just have no desire to have anything to do with this series. I feel like it wouldn't be good for me, so I'm not going to read or watch. Everyone obsessing over it doesn't help though.
~ Doctor Who~ It's not as if I obsess over it or anything. I am slowly taking my time to get through the series. I just genuinely enjoy it, but I still consider it an exception because it has such a huge following.
~The Hunger Games~ To me.. this belongs in neither of the before mentioned categories. I absolutely LOVE this series, but I read the books before it got super famous.
Do y'all ever do this?
Wupatki National Monument:
To my knowledge, I had never been to the ruins of a pueblo village before, so I really enjoyed this.

|I love how they just incorporated the rocks that were already there, into the building.|
