Odd Obsessions

  • Taylor Swift
I have an odd obsession with Taylor Swift. It kind of just came upon me. Actually my dear friend Ellie heated my obsession to a boil. (ha, ha) I especially love this video.
And to brighten up the ending of the holiday season, I must tell you the lyrics to the song below are just so meaningful.
We get so caught up in all of it
Business and relationships
Hundred mile an hour lives
And it's this time of year
And everybody's here
It seems the last thing on your mind

Is that the day holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to Jesus Christ who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
But here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

Even if it's the only Taylor Swift song you ever listen to, I suggest this song. 

  • Star Wars
Oh yes, the one and only, Star Wars Saga. I just finished watching it for the first time the other day. Have you seen these? If not, you must. If you have read on.

Oh Anakin.


 That's all I must say for spoiler reasons. In the first three Anakin is my absolute favorite character... Also Obi-Wan, and Yoda, they're awesome.

 For some odd reason Episode III is my favorite. (For those of you who have seen it, understand why that is odd) I loved the whole saga even if Episode IV was not my favorite. I recommend these movies STRONGLY.

 Also, if you plan on watching them, Episode IV is where you need to start. Watch them in this order--Ep. IV, Ep. V, Ep. VI, Ep. I, Ep. II, and Finally Ep. III. Oh and by the way, R2D2 is just cute.


  • Percy Jackson

Okay, obviously by this point you can tell I am not a typical tweenager. Everybody needs to love Percy Jackson! No, it's okay if you don't. But really, you should. I really like Percy. Is it odd have a to have a crush on a book character? Annabeth is also pretty cool, she's my second favorite character. My favorite book is the last one. Plus I love Rick Riordan's new series, "The Heroes of Olympus". Have you ever read these? Which is your favorite?


  • Mixed-Up Socks
You read it correctly. I wouldn't really call it an obsession, but I don't usually wear matching socks anymore. Sometimes they match somewhat, but other times, they don't match at all. And in this situation we come back to Ellie. She kind of rubs off on me. Oh and by the way, because I couldn't find any pictures of mixed socks, here is a picture of a stuffed polar bear.
  • Mustaches
You must be just as nerdy as I am if you've made it up to this point. Mustaches are just amazing. Why? Who knows. But I got my friend these cool mustache, finger tattoos, and she loved them! 
Etsy has a lot of cool mustache merchandise. So if you are a mustache fan, I suggest you go to Etsy. I don't like mustaches on actual people as much as I like those barber shop ones that are quite popular in the tween/teen world.

  • Owls
What's with those feathery little guys? They're just too cute. Owls on necklaces, bags, earrings, and shirts! They're everywhere. 
I really don't know the reason for the owl obsessions with all my friends. Everytime one of my friends sees an owl it's like a chorus of "aww". *shrugs* These things just happen.

If you have any obsessions in common with me, I'd love to hear. Do you have any odd obsessions?

Hey Ionie,
Here is my opinion :P
I'm kind of an Ex Taylor fan. I just don't listen to her stuff anymore.
I seriously need to read a LOT OF BOOKS! AHH! Percy Jackson, Hunger games, and all those historical fictions on my shelf :P And no, It's not weird at ALL to have a book character crush!!! I've had a million. ;)
I also need to see star wars sometime... Who knows when that will happen! Probably if i wind up married to a star wars fan LOL.
Polar bear stuffed animal picture = AWW!
Mustaches... I haven't quite fallen in love with those yet, And I don't think i will, But they do have a certain charm.
Owls. They are just plain cute. There is nothing more that can be said about them!
We should hang out sometime!!!
Your Friend C ;)
