First time you saw a pair of Ugg’s you didn’t really like them did you? Don’t worry, neither did I. But then you see them again and again and again and for some strange but probably scientific reason, you start liking them. It’s like when you start Summer School and all the boys look euh and then after two weeks you’re in love with one of them. I cannot really make a statement such as ‘we end up liking what we see around much’ cause then divorce shouldn’t really exist now should it? But I can say that veeery often I end up rethinking things just because I see them a lot.
PROOF? – I’ve started thinking fanny packs are cool (just so you know how serious this is on a -Things I Hate- post on Messenger all the way back to middle school I’d written ‘People with fanny packs’).
And I bet I’ll go back to hating them and think they’re terribly uncool as soon as the only people wearing them will be middle aged American men.
— My only hope is that if ever transparent bra straps and flesh colored stockings will be on trend I’ll be wise enough to keep on loathing them.
But enough of fashion, there are so many other things I find myself saying or thinking and never thought I would. But that’s life right? You grow up, you talk to people and those around you contaminate you with their thinking, there is no escaping that! And I’ve no idea if it’s an uncommon thing I casually experienced or if it happened to everyone, but from a moment of my life onward everyone seemed to be asking me the same question: ‘what SIGN are you?’.
Is this some kind of a 70’s New Age trail or has it always been like this? First time I got asked I was totally unaware of what was going to happen – YES! Because it’s a question that makes things happen!! A whole new world opens before you and without even knowing it you’re already down the zodiac spiral!
They tell you ‘Beware of Scorpios! Pisces are so difficult! Aries are so full of themselves!! Virgos sooooo precise!’ and not only you start believing it but you also SEE it. You feel like people can know you even better just by analyzing your star sign.
Ain’t it so crazy that in an era of ME-generation we end up rejecting our uniqueness by finding common traits on such a wide scale?
Anyways, my ascendant is Aquarius —-> YESS I can hear you thinking it!!
