“Better late than never.” – Mathew Hanry
So I’m not sure if you noticed or not but I haven’t posted since a month ago… so yeah, sorry about that. I’ve been busy working on a novel (4 part series) and I guess I just lost track of time. I’ll try to post whenever I can from now on because I have come to realize that I’m not super great at keeping and adhering to a schedule. But as Mr. Hanry once said/wrote: “Better late than never,” and this is the topic of today’s post!
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I have never EVER been able to keep up with the trends and fads of social society. I’m more or less in my little bubble surfing Pinterest or inventing things that are too expensive to actually build or writing and singing my little heart away. So I miss a lot of things. Like everything really.
I’ve always been this kind of person. I’m not sure if this is an introvert thing, but I never really know what’s trending online or really going on in society unless one of my friends tell me or show me online or something of those sorts.
For example, I have just recently read the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I have literally just watched all the movies withing the last 2 months and read all the books within the last month. I am serious. I have never laid my finger on the Harry Potter book series, with the exception of using the Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix as a makeshift brick to throw at my elementary school bully. I know I lacked the respect of the great J.K. Rowling and her precious book babies, but that was the biggest thing I could physically find on the recess ground. (Thank goodness my friend was reading the soft cover though.) I loved J.K.’s books so much, to the point of wondering why I didn’t get on the bandwagon when it first was popular over 10 years ago!
Some of the other late trends that I missed up are popular music and songs that come out only to find out almost 2 years later that the song was popular and was a big hit. I can’t remember what the song was called nor how it goes, (so that is also probably a reason why I missed that pony ride) but I remember playing it on repeat and telling my sister that it was such a good song, and that she needed to hear it. She just looked at me and said that the song was almost 2 years old and trended over a year ago.
This kind of late realization of trends has always been something that I have lacked in both social trends and general life skills. This goes for literally anything, from fashion to music to youtube and the list can go on. I’d like to think that I purposely ignore trends to rebel against the general condolence of society, (this is what happened with the Harry Potter series, which I now regret deeply) but most of the time it’s mostly me just being completely oblivious to what happens outside my bubble and morals that I carry with me.
Just out of curiosity, can any of you relate to this issue, or is this mostly just a me problem? If this ever happened to you I would love if you could share in comments, let the better late than never Bandwagon people unite!
Life is too short,
Try to catch that wagon every now and then.
Why did I miss Harry Potter?
