A lot of Christian girl bloggers use the word like it means "the desire to be a prostitute."

I understand not wanting to be obsessed with "the things of this world," but just because something is "mainstream" does not automatically make it shallow, sexual and sinful. A lot of mainstream things are, but a lot of unpopular things are too--you just don't hear about them as much.

Then, of course, there's the eye-roll moment when the girl actually READS the books or WATCHES the movie or LISTENS to the music and suddenly--OMG IT IS THE BEST THING EVER.

{It was especially awkward when I read the Harry Potter books after years of swearing they were Satan's handiwork. Ohhh yeah. That was uncomfortable.}

I do a lot of judgmental, irrational things. However, I'm glad to say that shunning mainstream stuff on principle is no longer one of them. Frankly, I could not care less whether something is popular or not. What matters to me is not what everyone says, but what I personally think.

Pointy-toed shoes are ugly.
Hollister is overrated.
The Twilight books aren't that bad.
The Hunger Games books are really pretty good.

In my opinion, people should spend a lot less time condemning or affirming things on the basis of what the world says. I mean, I think the real point of "in-the-world-but-not-of-it" might be to form your own ideas based on personal preference and prayer. Your pastor's word is not God's, and the girl with the Abercrombie jeans is not Satan.

Everyone Loves Glee =/= Glee sucks.

Glee sucking is what makes Glee suck XD Ahahaha. Lawl.

*ahem* Sorry.

People need to stop judging and start experiencing. God doesn't want us to shun the world, and he doesn't want us to be sheltered, shell-shocked sissies.

Just something that's been on my mind.



  1. I agree 100%. I also hate this idea that you can follow a band for years. The moment someone other than you know about them they are somehow "sell outs". Like making it is a bad thing?

  2. I LOVE this. A lot. Cuz this is so me. people say that I don't read/ watch twilight/ Harry Potter because I just want to be dif.If that were true, I wouldn't have read The Hunger games. but that's not true. I just really have no interest in them .

    *sigh* :)

    you should follow my blog if you haven't yet, btw

    Love always,
    Alana <3

  3. Jamie: Exactly! And I also don't think you should be ridiculed for discovering a band later in the game. Just because someone recently got into Linkin Park doesn't mean they can't genuinely them as much as you do.

    Alana: Thanks! You should read things because they sound interesting, bottom line. I would recommend trying "Harry Potter," but you have to stick with them XD The first three and a half books are so boring that I felt my brain oozing out my ear every time I tried to read them. But then the second half of #4 hit and I've never looked back. JK Rowling is extraordinarily talented.
