For The Love Of Something

Why is it that, as human's, we are so hard-wired to complain? I'm guilty of it as much as the next man, probably more, but I find it an intriguing concept. You will nearly always find me complaining about things I dislike, be it having no money, a day at work, a TV show that I tried and was rubbish. You will find me angrily telling people about bad experiences, complaining about people who wronged me and stuff that I hate regularly, but why is it that very rarely I, and indeed most of us, take the time out to talk about the things that we love? I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that I'm not the only one all too prepared to let the things that I dislike define me, because it's suddenly uncool if we want the things that we love to do the same.

I'm not saying you have to love everything; I personally dislike throwing away empty boxes (they might come in handy), early mornings, non-sugarfree juice, the fact that I have to cleanse, tone and moisturize twice every day (you all know this is seriously boring). I dislike ex partners, the taste of cinnamon and not knowing the nutritional information of food. I'm not saying you have to declare your love for everything and disregard your hatred, I'm just saying, let's start letting other things be the things people like us for.

Supernatural Names

I can think of a whole list of things that I'd rather people knew me because of than the things I hate. I obsessively love Supernatural, How To Get Away With Murder, Pretty Little Liars, American Horror Story and Gossip Girl, in fact I obsessively love nearly every American TV show ever made. I love watching dance videos on Youtube, I listen to the song Chandelier by Sia literally at least once a day, I like to arrange my nail varnishes by colour, I like brushed cotton duvets, new sheets, my legs to be freshly shaved. I like reading vogue, I like scouring the shelves of Boots, I like those days where it rains so hard it feels like it never gets light. I love a thousand and one things, and it might be horrendously uncool of me to admit it, but I would rather be horrendously uncool and known for things I actually like. It's like fangirling has become a bad thing, and I'm not talking about fourteen year old girls turning up at Harry Style's hotel room, I'm talking about loving something so much that you can't stop talking about it. Why on earth have we made this a bad thing? 

All I'm saying, I suppose, is embrace your inner fangirl. Be known for the things that you love, and if it makes you happy, feel perfectly free to talk to me about it until your voice is hoarse.

What things do you fangirl about?
