Life Beyond Pinkerton10:30 AM
I understand the frustration of the whole "I liked them/it before it was cool!" situations, I do. However, how can one not be overcome with immense joy when your friends/colleges start to enjoy the things that you care so much about? Think about it: we all have things that we get so much joy out of when we get the time to do it. Marathoning your favorite TV shows, getting lost in a book series, blasting your favorite band's first album while cleaning your room. You carefully try to bring up these things in conversation, however, people have different tastes than you, or have their own things that they are into and you feel like your efforts fall on deaf ears.
Then, one day, months-even years later, it happens. Your best friend watches an episode of your favorite show! You get to watch them fall in love with the characters that you love, watch them throw pillows at the the TV in frustration with story-plots. Your co-worker cannot stop talking about the hilarious cover your favorite band did on their latest album (Unbreak my heart, Weezer. Go look it up RIGHT NOW). AND, your little brother starts reading actual books.
You then feel like an evil genius, and life is good.
