I’m Over It–My Disinterests
Last Thursday I posted Thursday Things – Obsessions edition. And just like I’ve become obsessed with several things lately, I’ve become disinterested in just as many.
Things that Used to Interest Me but Now Don’t:
So I got on a racing kick for a couple years. Now I’m over it. Usually by now I’d have already run 3 races in the year, and have 5 or so more planned. This year, I’ve run in zero races and have zero planned. I’m fairly certain this interest will come back eventually, though.
I have a cycle. I become obsessed with makeup and skincare products for a few months, spend way too much money on high end products, and then become disinterested in it, and all the products sit on my vanity, waiting to expire until they can be replaced by my next bout of makeup obsessions.
3. Talk radio.
Remember this post where I said I was listening to, like, soooo much talk radio? The Oprah channel, CNN, Fox News, etc? Not any more. Now I listen to rap, r&b, coffeehouse music, this music, and Robin thicke.
4. 50 Shades of Grey and the rest of the books.
Uninterested. Can’t wait to finish the third book so it can be over!
5. Banana soft serve.
I know, blog-world blasphemy. But I made some last night at 8:30 pm for dessert, and then immediately became utterly disinterested at the huge mess and amount of dishes I had to do because of one tiny bowl of pureed bananas.
6. Sunflower seed butter.
This is my last jar of 3 when I went on an obsessed-binge with it earlier in the year. The first two I finished in two weeks. The one above has been in my fridge for at least three months.
I got into it for a while. It branched out my creativity in the kitchen and made me expand my usual methods in baking and cooking. I even created a paleo/primal pinterest board! I still like to use almond meal in baked goods, but I’m over paleo-ing everything for a while. (Side note: I was never paleo/primal…just liked to experiment with it!)
I’m just over it. I was into it big time last summer, and I’ve been waiting for the want to start juicing to strike again – now that the weather is warm again. Alas, the juicer is still in the basement…behind the rice cooker.
Which of your previous obsessions are you over now?
