i don't like how it's possible to enjoy something so very much and then retract quite a bit of love for it because it ceases to be awe-inspiring.

books like Perks of Being a Wallflower and movies like American Beauty and songs like Sorry About That by Alkaline Trio, all those things seem to lose something over time.

they start to get ... cheesy.

and i can't figure out if this is because i'm getting older and i can see through it all or i'm getting older and i'm crotchety.

it's like giving up a blankie. suddenly it seems so childish to love something like that, and then you stop hugging your mom when your friends are around, and that's when you start drinking and driving (which is very unsafe mind you)

oh i'm just tired of my selection right now. maybe i should stop putting my favorite songs on repeat.
