YOU ARE NOT BASIC

IT IS PERFECTLY OKAY TO LIKE THESE THINGS. YOU ARE NOT STUPID OR BORING OR ONE DIMENSIONAL!!!
  1. Society: oh a certain amount of teenage girls like something? Quick! Ridicule them so that even their smallest desires seem vapid and worthless!!
  2. I have an irrational and acute fear of being labeled as "basic" and being perceived as unoriginal and mindless because I like certain things. But using WIDELY accepted services and products is not a reflection on your intellect or worth
  3. What follows is a list of MENIAL things society has told me to avoid if I want to be interesting:
  4. Pumpkin spice lattes
    Or any seasonal item for that matter
