I wonder why...
Weddings tend to be so expensive. I understand the need for glamor and perfection, but I don't understand the need to spend $10,000+ on a one day event. I'm not saying that if you spend/spent a lot on a wedding that you're wasting money, but it's just not me. Oh well.
People in the U.S. have different accents. There are accents for every part of the country! Chicago accents, NY accents, southern accents (even different types of southern accents), California accents, and even Pacific NW accents! Crazy.
Sexism is such a common unconscious thing. Someone was showing me how to use a gas grill and he said "but I'm sure Nick knows how to do it". It's silly because I know how to use a gas grill just as well as, if not better than, Nick. It's just silly.
Spacing is such an undecided/mixed up thing. I was taught, since elementary school, to put two spaces (when typing, two finger spaces when writing) after a sentence. Why is there a weird thing going on where some people say to only put one space, but some say two?! I'll just stick with my two space habit, thank you!
I keep going through weird blogging ups and downs. I don't mean writing posts, but, for example, when I see that I've lost a follower I get a little bummed out. I sit and wonder, "did I write about something wrong? Maybe I'm too boring?" BUT, I just have to keep telling myself that the reason for this blog is not to gain followers/readers. It is cool having lots of followers, but seriously, do they ALL read my blog? Does it really matter? As long as I'm writing, it doesn't matter. I'm writing for me (and the readers that I do have). Do you go through this, too?
Cartoons have changed so much. While nannying I get to watch an array of cartoons (the older girls pretty much control the TV when they're home). Cartoons are crazy/random/silly nowadays! Whatever happened to the simple Rugrats or Doug cartoons? Nothing too crazy. Now, like Adventure Time or the Random Show, etc. are all so random! Random creatures appearing out of nowhere. So weird and crazy... and sadly addicting. This does, however, keep me up-to-date on the latest trends and fads with kids - haha.
