Sunday Confessions: The "I'm Over It" Edition

I'm fully aware that the following is going to make me sound completely egotistical and uber bitchy. But we've all had moments like these. Moments where you've had it with the "mAss lOvE!" of something you've held dear to you for a long time. Like when the fashion industry decides to embrace riding boots or your favorite color because the new "accent color" for EVERYTHING. Or a hobby you've had since you were a kid all of a sudden blows up and everyone looks at you like you've lost your mind because you're not super psyched about something they've just uncovered (likely via Pinterest) that you've been doing for a long time.

This is my rant and I won't apologize for it. I'm absolutely aware there are things I have said or done on this blog that would fall into someone else's list. One of them being that I have a blog. And that is O.K!

Health Fads: I am kind of over hearing all about this new thing that people are doing. You may have heard about it. It's called juicing and substituting smoothies for meals. Oh. That's right! Isn't that that thing I was telling my friends about a couple years ago when I stopped eating animal products and then they all told me I was weird and that it was gross? I'm not faulting anyone for trying either considering I've been doing it for quite awhile. Let's just stop pretending it's new or this amazing thing you just discovered. Because it's neither and I don't want to hear your bandwagon speech.

You Are Not a Photographer: Oh and that new camera you bought does not make you a photographer. Get back with me AFTER you've taken a few thousand photographs that weren't "ideas you found on Pinterest" and then we'll chat about fstops and ISO.

Commentary in General: As humans we LOVE to talk about other humans. It must be part of our DNA or something. But the constant need to voice our opinions about what someone else does or says or wear or whatever, where does that come from? I'm guilty of it myself and my initial thought when I do it, of why I disagree with something is because I personally won't have done it. This is a topic I plan on revisiting in the near future. And something I plan on changing in myself.

Tattoos--kind of on topic, but not really: My new tattoo has turned into an extremely annoying tattoo. I don't remember having such an issue with my previous tattoos and up until today, it hadn't been an issue. This freaking thing itches like I was attached by a swarm of mosquitoes. I know this is normal and I'm sure it happened with my previous ones, but I must have blocked it. Oh and the whole, "wow--I can't believe you got such a small one done. I thought you were really into them." snarky comments need to end. Yep, got kind of a small one because as any good consumer will tell you it's best to research the end product before diving head first in a major commitment.

And to anyone who feels like any of the above are directed personally to them (I know you are out there!), I leave you with this. Which I found on Pinterest, so if you want to join my wagon, we ride at dawn!

Do you have anything to confess this week?

  1. HAHA I actually LOVE this! I've been feeling the same way lately! I'm SO over so many things, especially the photographer one you listed! I'm also over everyone thinking that putting pics online makes you a model! You know, stuff like that!

  2. Ugh, this! AMEN. Though, I will say I'm sort of guilty for the photographer one - I only just obtained a DSLR and I'm all about that bad boy, but I also studied art and film photography, so maybe I'm excused haha. I still don't know what all these damn buttons and settings are for though :(
    Also, just punch people in the face that snark on your tattoo. Done. It's not their hot body, they don't need to say a thing.
    This made me laugh and made my day a bit, so thank you!

  3. Hell, yes! I totally agree with this. It SUPER annoys me when suddenly everyone is interested in something and it's super hot and I'm like "damn it, where were you when I was the only loser in 5th grade doing this?" And yeah...I'm more than over seeing 8 million pictures of girls posting pics of themselves and also their children. Show me something else, damn it! Shower curtains would be better.


Thanks for reading!
