Things you massively changed your mind about


#1

I used to hate dogs. I was scared of them and would avoid going anywhere were they were likely to be. Then my sister got a dog and I got to know her (the dog, I already knew my sister) and I discovered that dogs are actually ace.

(I had a less profound change of heart regarding musical theatre where I decided that Legally Blonde the Musical was terrible and not my cup of tea at all, until I actually saw it and it was fab).

You?


#2

Most of my ATDs, barely
Liked any of them at first.


#3

Once upon a time I thought people who liked horror films were massive weirdos :laughing:


#4

Buying/wearing decent clothes. Never used to give a fuck about it. Now give a big fuck about it.


#5

Running


#6

Hip-hop


#7

The literary merits of The Da Vinci Code


#8

Watched Veronica on netflix last night. Was alright.


#9

Wearing jeans.

As a kid I used to hate them - they felt too stiff and not nearly as comfortable as jogging trousers.


#10

Mince pies and fruitcake.

Didn’t like them at all as a kid. Now, I’ll hoover any up that are left around.


#11

Cheese. Couldn’t stand the stuff whereas now I have an addiction.


#12

i haven’t bothered with it yet! What kind of horror genre is it?


#13

I guess it’s a bit of a ghost story. Reminded me a lot of Under the Shadow (and reminded me how good that film was).


#14

Olives. 15 year old me thought they were horrendous little balls of seawater. Adult me has probably eaten enough to get Greece’s economy back to a sensible place.


#15

Peanuts/nuts in general (used to hate them, love them now)
Marmite (used to hate, now - fine)


#16

Used to go to gigs early enough to see a support band. What a mug.


#17

Same with dogs really. Never hated them but was definitely scared of the bigger ones as a kid (had a nasty run in with a doberman at one point) and the little yelpy ankle biters used to annoy me (still do a bit tbf). Now love most of them and totally enjoy having them lick my face. Two of my friends have labs and they’re lovely. Pretty keen on having a wee beagle.

Also, Vampire Weekend.


#18

Wasn’t that fussed about The Donnas.


#19

Eggs - used to only entertain having egg and soldiers at most, and even then was unimpressed. Now, I eat hundreds every year


#20

Used to hate basically all dance music (techno, drum & bass, house etc) because it was popular among the twats at my school

Got into it mostly after school, without those associations, nice
