So, yes, as a before mentioned, I am easy. But upon further reflection, I want to clarify: this doesn't necessarily mean I am complacent. Or have no opinions. Because I do.
A recent post by a fellow blogger lead me to reflect a bit on this. I am a diplomatic soul, not prone to argue, and unless I feel really strongly about something, won't make a big deal about it. When I'm really comfortable with a person, I will let loose with my thoughts and opinions. Because they are many and sometimes a little crazy (and therefore interesting?). I have often worried, however, that this makes me seem a boring individual.
Earlier this summer, I discussed with a friend the frustrations in dating. Specifically his dating. He asks girls out on a regular basis, and says that the conversations more often than not go like this:
Guy: So, what do you like to do (after discussion on work and school is dispensed and the conversation is already waning)?
Girl: Oh, I like everything.
Guy: do you read?
Girl: Oh yeah. I love to read.
Guy: Really?! What do you like? Who are your favorite authors?
Girl: Oh you know, like, everything.
Guy: Do you like ________? (favorite and well known author)
Girl: Oh yeah, ________ is great.
Guy: Who else?
Girl: Oh other people like _______ and some that aren't.
Guy: What kind of music do you like?
Girl: You know, a little bit of everything........
You get the picture. I do not want to be that person. Sometimes I think I am. Because I am easy to please. I do not, however, like everything. I'm just not picky.
Point in case. I love movies, and will see most anything for that very reason. Some aren't so great, but serve thier purpose in entertaining me. Others I adore. And can go on and on about.
I love books, and love to read them. I love Steinbeck, but kinda hate Grapes of Wrath (see, I'm opinionated). But that was in high school that I read that one, perhaps if I read it again, I would like it more. Most likely, I would just be depressed. I don't really like to discuss politics. Especially with irrational people. I am kinda middle grounded. Not necessarily a fence sitter, I just think people and politics have become too polarized, and some common sense can be found in the middle ground. I also am not going to take a stand on an issue I am not well educated on. I need to be more well educated on many issues. I also need to live my life.
So I guess I don't like everything (although, I am disgustingly optimistic and can find beauty and merit in most things.......so I may appear to sometimes).
