Well, I suppose I should post something here that isn't just schoolwork. And I suppose I have a topic to rant about, and I won't let that go to waste.
We live in a consumerist society. Walk into any city, any town - advertisements and shops, all trying to get you to purchase their stock. This isn't bad in itself - corporations are corporations.
However, it seems these days people describe themselves more and more by the media and products they endorse rather than who they are as people. People are 'fans' of bands, 'fans' of Apple products.
Fan is not a word you should use to describe yourself.
You should not be a fanatic of anything - a fanatic is somebody who is such a large proponent of any given subject that they do not think rationally. You shouldn't consider yourself a fan of anything - in fact, you shouldn't define yourself by what you like.
Define yourself by your personality, not the stuff you like.
People define themselves more by the products or artists they endorse, not who they are. Describe yourself as a human being, please, don't be a walking advertising board.
(To reiterate: Hobbies and interests are also an integral part of one's personality, clearly my wording was too vague.)
I realize this isn't exactly the most 'fun' way to kick off a blog, but I feel it should be said.
Feel free to comment down below.
(Also, you may want to get used to this juxtaposition of silly and serious articles for the future.)
