Unpopular Opinions Part 2

Megan's Unpopular Opinions...  Part 2.

Stars/Popular Musicians/Actors/People/Athletes

I can barely keep up with my own life and my own people.  To keep up with what TSwift or who the fuck ever is just too much effort for me.  I've accepted that other people love this time of entertainment (Teh Running Bestie) and she chooses to love me even if I don't share her joy.

Make-up/Face things

I rarely ever wear make up and when I do, it's what I've had for years.  People who get excited over the newest Naked palettes blow my mind.  I just don't get what is so special about that eye shadow.  They all look like they are pretty much the same color to me.  I don't even use face wash anymore.  I realized it was just breaking me out worse and when I stopped using products on my face, my skin cleared up (with the exception of my blackheads in my t-zone because I have the world's largest pores).  I use a wet wash cloth in the shower and face wash/make up remover cloth before bed and I'm done.  Minimal effort.  I'll probably look 98 when I'm 50.  #MeganProblems

Sports are stupid/overrated

Let me tell you how many fucks I give about this whole NFL/#takeaknee debacle: 0.  I give zero fucks.  Here's why.  Because I never gave a fuck about the NFL to begin with.  If that isn't enough, please check my opinion above on "Popular People."  I will partake of NHL (hockey), but that's because at one point in my life I worked where the Carolina Hurricanes played and I got into the fact that the players could punch each other.  I enjoy going to the Stingrays games because it's a local activity and the players still get to punch each other.  The NFL has never impressed me.  Baseball is boring as fuck.  Basketball was never something I could play well, so I always shunned it.  As a kid, NASCAR was a huge thing in my life, because my dad and other family members were into it, not because I thought Rusty Wallace was the best thing ever.

Any specific type of book is better than another

I've been on my soapbox about how great audiobooks are for a few years now.  I've been doing the ebook thing for at least 5 years.  Know what?  I love the convenience of technology.  That doesn't mean that I only read one format of books.  I will take books in any format.  Recently, I've been getting back into reading hard copy books, because it happens to be the format that I had on hand.  I'm all about whatever is easier and cheaper. 

Android is better than Apple

Specifically, cell phones, but probably in general.  Android is more customizable and user-friendly and you don't have to be part of the Apple oligarchy.  That said, being part of the Google cult does make the Android life easier.

I don't care about revolutionary music artists of days gone by.

I came into my music preferences in high school (2000-2004).  I'll always be an alt-rock gal.  I was raised on country music, so I will always secretly like country music.  I'll even admit to liking Bro Country.  But I don't care about Prince or Michael Jackson or the Beatles or hair bands from the 80s.  If you ask me about a band that isn't a popular 90s country artist or a late 90s-early 2000s rock band, I will probably have no idea who you are talking about.  That said, I lurve me some Goo Goo Dolls and Mumford & Sons and some EDM (electronic dance music).  Eclectic tastes?  Yes, that's me.


  1. I don't give a shit about celebrities either. They are just people...who get paid an insane amount of money to pretend they are other people. lol. And I am with you on books too. I love audiobooks because I can read while I commute!!! But I also love my ebooks and physical books as well. I love music that I grew up with and remember, so starting in the late 80s/early 90's through my college years (2001-2005). Hells yes to Goo Goo Dolls!

  2. Yes to the celebrity thing. A few years ago I realized that the idea that someone is good at their job is not enough reason for me to care about them- people complain about celebrities but won't stop talking about are literally creating the culture you love to hate.

  3. I completely agree on the make-up & Android v Apple.

  4. I don't jump on the celebrity bandwagon either. I don't care where they went, what they ate, what they wore, or who they did. They put their pants the same way I do.
    Sports aren't really my thing either. Especially football! Never did get into it.
