I like the Twilight series. there, i said it.
I know the acting isn’t incredible but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… watching a book come to life is enchanting. I, unlike most, appreciate the way the story has to be modified in order to become a film. You have to give them credit; fitting a novel into a 90 minute motion picture can’t be easy (certain details will be left out). I personally think the midnight showings are a blast! I love being in a theater surrounded by passionate fans. Twilight and Harry Potter premiers are intense and that’s exactly how I like them! I am thankful for these books/movies because it’s very rare my sisters and I are fond of the same thing. It’s sort of become a tradition of ours to attend Twilight showings. Breaking Dawn is my favorite so far :)
With that being said, not everyone enjoys the same things. I think it’s terrible the way people look down on the likes of others. What a waste of perfectly good energy. I don’t mean to sound preachy but when I was younger I felt like an outcast. My classmates were constantly belittling the things I loved... Power Rangers, Winnie the Pooh, Teletubbies haha! I will admit I’m not your average girl. I guess I tried hanging onto my childhood a little longer than most. Eventually I felt forced to change. I threw away everything kid-like in hopes of trying to fit in. But the thing is… I never really did fit in. I spent so much time attempting to be someone I wasn’t that I lost myself. Being a kid can be rough! It has taken me a very long time to recognize who I am and what I like (though it may be different from others). I encourage you all to keep a positive attitude and avoid discrimination.

Have you ever felt self-conscious about your interests? I’d love to hear some of your experiences.
Have a safe and happy weekend! ♥ Christine
