Who wants to know something interesting about me? Ok well I'm going to tell you anyways...

Ok i am a hater of fads. They are incredibly annoying to me. I'm the kind of person who prides myself (maybe a little too much) on being my own self, not a follower or a leader necessarily- but just me. So sometimes i intentionally avoid fads because i feel like I'm falling into a trap that everyone is falling into. It took me so long before I would buy skinny jeans just because I was resistant to be a supporter of another dang fad. Like, why do i need to have skinny jeans? So I can be like EVERY OTHER PERSON IN THE WORLD? I just don't get it. Why do we all want to be the same? Granted, I wear skinny jeans now. But the whole colored skinny jeans or like floral or whatever the heck else is happening- yeah not on board with that quite yet. I think they are cute and they look good. But if I went out and spent a $100 on 3 pairs of colored jeans, then what would that get me? Uhm....i would just blend in more with everyone else. Nobody would notice, but I'd be $100 poorer. Ya know what I'm saying? I mean this is just an example. There are so many fads. Like the DIY fad. I've always been a creative person. I've always loved creating things and doing crafts and all that. But now that every woman in the world feels like they need to DIY like their life depends on it, I'm kind of turned off. When I want to do a craft or make something, I almost don't want to because I feel like it would just be giving into the pressure to DIY that so many other women are giving into. My husband has recently informed me of the ridiculousness of my reasoning ("if you want to craft, craft!"), and i'll have to agree on that...

Oh and THEN there is the healthy food fad.  Where green smoothies are hip and gluten is suddenly a cuss word. I'm a tiny bit annoyed by it just because I feel like so many people are doing it for the wrong reasons. But still, it's a good thing regardless. If a fad results in healthier people, then let it be a fad forever! (that's my hope for this fad) It's important to treat our bodies well. I suppose you can say I'm a part of the fad but it's more than a fad to me. It's the way I've chosen to live my life for the rest of my life. No, I'm not going to do any of the Vegan, Gluten free, Paleo business. Give me meat and dairy or give me death! aaand, little treats here and there are a must in my world. But for the most part, I will fill my body with real food. However, I will admit- I just watched a documentary on food production and it's the first time I've thought about going vegetarian. It isn't going to happen, but the thought crossed my mind. yikes- those poor little chickens! Anyways.. This was a lovely little rant. I don't want to follow any fads, but i want to eat healthy, do crafts, and be a momma and wife. the end.

Ok also random side note: one of my friends told me that she had a friend who wanted someone to come teach her how to make healthy meals once a week for 8 weeks (paid!!) and was wondering if I'd be cool is that? That would be like a dream job! All of you people out there who are registered dieticians /professional are probably scoffing at the thought...but i don't know, maybe i can turn it into a thing. that would be so so cool!

I hope you enjoyed entering into my stream of consciousness....lamest post of my life. (but look mom, i blogged! sorry there aren't any pictures of jane..)

  1. Oh my heck. "Give me meat and dairy or give me death!" Can I make a DIY Vinyl wall sign that says that? Your thoughts are great.
