I will be the first to admit that I like plenty of things many people wouldn’t consider fun. I do an abnormal amount of crossword puzzles, spend every spare penny on shoestring-budget backpacking trips, have a deep obsession with British reality TV, and I just can’t stop taking online personality quizzes (turns out I am more of a Chandler than a Phoebe, which is a little surprising).
One of the joys of reaching adulthood is the corresponding decline in caring what people think. You think crossword puzzles are nerdy? Will Shortz and I respectfully disagree. Does hitchhiking and eating ramen throughout Thailand sound crazy? Well, sawatdee ka! As we grow older we find it easier to express our likes and dislikes and let others know what we find fun and what we don’t.
