Alone in Dislike

We all have different tastes and opinions about the world around us. Sometimes you can find several people that like or dislike the same things you do. Other times, you stand alone in your opinions.

Now, you might think I am going to expound some deep thoughts over here about standing for your beliefs, but I am not. I am going to talk about a few things that I do not like, maybe even hate, that everyone else seems to love.

I was thinking about it the other day and thought, I should blog about this because I need to update my blog. I also like to inflict the world with my opinions. Feel free to insert an evil laugh right here.

Okay, here is a list of things I do not like that everyone else I come into contact with seems to like or love.

1. egg rolls
-I have never really enjoyed egg rolls. I do not know why. 

2. pears
-pears are a sad and disgusting excuse for a fruit.

3. cookies with dried fruit in them
-oatmeal raisin cookies were invented by evil people.

4. the band Green Day
-I do not really get into their music. I never have.

5. Frisbee related sports
-I know, they seem cool, but Ultimate Frisbee and Frisbee golf have never held any appeal for me. There are other sports I love and would much rather play (volleyball, basketball, and soccer)

6. Romeo and Juliet
-I love Shakespeare. He wrote some splendid things, but I can not get behind Romeo and Juliet.

7. The French language
-No offense! I love French literature and art, especially from the 19th century. When it comes to hearing a foreign language though, French is not my favorite. I only include it on this list because it seems like a requirement that every girl should love French.

8. Coca-Cola/Diet Coke
-Way back in the day I used to like Coke, but I really do not anymore. It tastes gross to me.


All of the things on this list are things I feel "out of place" for not liking. Do not worry, I do not think any less of you for liking them. If anything you could think less of me for not liking these things. Ha!

Apparently this list is subject to change. Up until a few months ago, pepperoni would have been on this list. I tried it again though and it was good! I enjoy pepperoni on pizza now.

What things are on your dislike list? I think it is interesting. The little things people dislike, and like, are what make them unique. Everyone dislikes famine (I hope), but not everyone dislikes Coca-Cola! Feel free to comment about it.

Speaking of comments, the comments on this blog are sent to me for approval before they are posted. I did this because I made the blog public and I was not sure what will happen with that. I will publish any comment so long as it is not disrespectful or inappropriate. If you do not see your comment publish immediately, do not worry. I need to approve it first is all. I might change that setting down the line. For now it works. Please do not let that intimidate you from commenting. I love comments!

Also, I realize that this post seems rather pessimistic because it is all about disliking things. I will do a post of things I like. It might be long though. I like a lot more things than what I dislike.

I think these things stand out to you BECAUSE you dislike them. Quite honestly, I don't think a lot of people like too many of those things. I love only the chewy oatmeal raisin cookies and it seems people only like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Pears, coke, Green Day, French, and Frisbees? Meh. Egg rolls? I think they need more beef/meat/something in it. It's like a deep fried salad, but I like the crunchy shell and dipping sauce. I guess it could use an improvement. As for Romeo and Juliet, I think any intelligent person dislikes that too. It was just the first Twilight for its teenage drama. It's overrated, but I don't know how many people actually like it... Good stuff, sis. I have a list of these too. Such as how I dislike apples, grapes, and watermelon; I love cloudy and rainy days that are always hated, dreaded, and put down by people. Stuff like that makes me feel quite left out sometimes, but oh well. I like liking them... or disliking them. =P

I still like you, Cali! And I'll take it one step further. I don't like any Shakespeare. GASP!

Erick- It's true. I was thinking a lot about my random dislikes because the past couple weeks they seem to keep coming up! Someone will be talking about oatmeal-raisin cookies or Diet Coke or something about how awesome they are. Gross.

You should hang out with Danny and I on stormy cloudy days. We both get really excited about it!

Ha ha! I never thought of egg rolls like that, but they are deep fried salad! Oh, the dipping sauce is great! I just want to dip other things in it.

Kimi- Thanks! You don't like any Shakespeare?? I will gasp about that! ha ha ha!
