Awkward Trends.

I don't really know if that title even really fits for what I am about to write about, but I couldn't think of anything better, so just go with it, mmkay?

There are some things that I see people posting about on Facebook, or pinning about that i can't help but go "really?! That's what you think is the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? THAT'S the picture you want hanging on your wall for all to see????"

These are a couple of the things that have gotten under my skin lately that I really find it hard to believe I am the only person who DOESN'T want to see it...

This Video has been floating around on FB for the past week or so, with all sorts of comments about "this made me cry it was so beautiful" and "I dare you not to smile while you watch this!"
Really? Strangers kissing each other. On camera. That's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? I couldn't watch it for more than 30 seconds before I just felt weird and uncomfortable and had to stop it. 
Am I alone here?

The other thing that makes me cringe sometimes is pregnancy pictures.
Now, don't get me wrong, I agree that pregnancy is a beautiful process and experience for women or whatever (it's not for me at this point, but it's great for other people), but something about these bare belly maternity pictures just makes me unhappy.
Yes, I know, it's an intimate experience to be pregnant, and even though the baby is still en-utero, it's like your first real family pictures, etc. But I think you can take those pictures with your shirt on
I'm sure I'm not going to make any friends with this particular emotion, but hopefully people will understand that it's just one of those personal preferences. I guess I'm just modest like that... I think that it's just plain uncomfortable sometimes to look at someone's round, firm, veiny pregnancy belly.

Ya know?

Anyways, that's that. I've been waiting a while to get it of my chest.
Carry on.

I really actually dislike maternity photos...I think they are cheesy and the bare belly stuff is weird too...and this is coming from someone who has been pregnant/has a child
