This is the last warning about the lawn.

12 July 2011

Here’s something great about getting old: with every passing day, you give slightly less of a shit if anyone thinks you’re “cool” or not.

Now, I’m not exactly ancient, or anything — I’ll be 33 in a couple of weeks. But something interesting started happening to me sometime close to my 30th birthday. I started wearing what I felt like wearing, listening to the music I felt like listening to, and watching the movies I felt like watching. More shocking, I started giving my honest opinion when asked about these things, and being unapologetic about it.

This morning on the way to the office, “Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold came up on XM, and I thought to myself, “you know, I dig these guys.” Back in my late teens and early 20s, I would have waited for about five other people to say they liked a band or a song before I’d say I liked it. Today? I just turned up the radio all the way and kept driving.

Don’t like something I like? Hey, that’s cool. Just don’t expect me to feel bad about liking something lame, because I won’t.

So, folks — what’s a book, film, band, song, etc. that other people think is lame that you really enjoy? Share!

    Kinda surprised you weren’t that way sooner, honestly, considering I’ve always been that way, lmao.
