Things I Used To Hate But Now Like

For some reason I thought it'd be fun to compile a list of things I used to hate but now like. Enough said, here goes:

1. Movies with talking
2. Movies with kissing (I think it always made me uncomfortable to watch this with my Mom or sisters)
3. Crunchy Peanut Butter (my mother has written proof that I didn't like this at one time)
4. Soccer (Chelsea plays Juventus on Wed and I'm so excited)
5. Politics (although part of me still hates it)
6. Movies with subtitles
7. Woody Allen (the man is quite hilarious)
8. School (its quite surprising how much you miss it once you realize every day is the same in the 8-5 grind)
9. The Police (listening to the radio at work all-day everyday makes you realize that their songs were much better than a lot of other crap)
10. Dill pickles (they taste so good on the side of sandwich)
11. Being somewhat healthy (emphasis on "somewhat")
12. Going to bed somewhat early (again, emphasis on "somewhat")
13. Albuquerque (the weather is almost unbeatable-almost)
14. Making fun of strangers (I used to get annoyed that my wife did this but now its our favorite game)
15. Lost In Translation (hated it the first time I saw it-didn't get it- but every time I watch it, it just keeps getting better)
16. Halo (I used to refuse to play it and although I only kind of like the game, I have come a long way from before)
17. Having everyone worry about what I'm going to do with my life (just kidding-I actually still really hate this)
18. Myself (I never had a really strong hate for myself but I never really like myself either-now I find that its a lot more exciting to be me because I have no idea whats around the corner-maybe everything and maybe nothing-or maybe a little bit of something)
19. Talking (Still don't like to do it much but I've come a long way)
20. Having my wife kick me in the pants to get me in gear (actually, I've always liked this)

I could go on but I'm not going to. Hoped this brightened your day a little.

I am glad you like it when I kick you in the pants because I probably wont ever stop!

Interesting post. I never really thought about things I used to hate but now I like. I'll have to give it some thought. And the only reason we worry about what you're going to do with your life is because we love you. Oh, and because we don't want you to live in a van down by the river. (just kidding- lol)
