I hate to write angry sounding entries, but sometimes you just need to get stuff out to help you feel better. This one is more...annoyed than angry. I'll do my best to refrain from using this as a grounds for nothing but complaining as best I can, but hey, some days you just need to rant, right?

So, in a sense, I'm sort of the "weird one" of the family one could say (black sheep seems too strong, it's not like I'm hated or an outcast or anything like that). It's not as though I go out of my way to be different or go against normalcy, it's just what I'm into. I like stuff people think is dumb, terrible, or have just never heard of. I understand people asking about how I got into things, or even how I came across it, but I find it very irritating how some people ask me "Why" as if it's just the worst thing in the world. Why do others want to make it seem as if things I like make me a stupid or bad person?

Examples of said questions:

1. "Why do you listen to that crazy music?"
2. "You still watch wrestling? Grow up, don't you know it's fake?"
3. "How can you watch those terrible/gross movies?"
4. "Why don't you speak Spanish? Aren't you Spanish?"
5. "How come you're always dating white girls?"

You would think after 28 years of life, questions like these wouldn't be asked, and yet, they still are and they annoy me to no end. Why do I have to keep explaining myself, and why do I keep being judged? For what? Are any of my hobbies or interests harming others? Do they interfere with me getting things done in my normal life? No, they don't. So if I must, here are the answers to these questions:

1. I listen to whatever is pleasing to my ears. As long as the music is good and the vocals are tolerable, I'll listen. That simple.

2. I've been watching it since I was 3 years old. Kind of a hard habit to break. It's pretty much just a soap opera for men with more violence. Works for me.

3. I can watch any kind of films, I just happen to like stuff that's either so bad it's good so I can laugh at its ineptitude and make fun of it or stuff that's violent because...I just like it. I like exploring the darker side of things. I find it interesting to see what kinds of insanity people come up with.

4. I didn't speak it at home, most of my friends are White and Asian, and I grew up in Virginia, therefore I had no need for it.

5. It just worked out that way. I've had 7 relationships, and 4 of them just happened to be white (and one half white and half Spanish). It's not like I set out to only go out with a certain type. I would date my current girlfriend no matter what she was, simply because she is a great person.

Sorry for this dumb entry, I just had to get this out of my system.
