So when I'm not busy being a "crunchy" (or, attachment) Mama to my energetic, adorable toddler, I am a total pop-culture junkie. I love celebrity news/gossip (E! News, Chelsea Lately, wuttt?!) & mindless reality shows (Kardashians or Jersey Shore, anyone? ...anyone??). Hip hop is still my default music genre, closely followed by Pop, R&B, & Rock. This is something I not only did not "grow out" of, but in fact "grew into" even more as technology, media, & social networking has exploded so much that we can effectively "follow" people from across the country (or world even) in real time, via Twitter, Facebook, Youtube (which are obviously my 3 favorites), or whatever strikes your fancy.
Maybe it's because I'm a Gemini, so I theoretically (or astrologically, or whatever) have 2 personalities, but I feel like the different aspects of "myself" contradict one another. I mean, yes I have a Bachelor's in Psychology & a Master's in Elementary Special Education & pride myself on using fairly legible grammar/spelling/punctuation/etc., but so what that I can speak/interpret most modern slang/ebonics like your average high school boy? And yes, when I'm in "Mama L," or better yet "Teacher L" mode, I like to get on my soap box about being open-minded, non-judgmental, & compassionate to all fellow humans, but so what that my ringtone is a 30 second clip of a "Drake" song which happens to say the F word once & the N word 4 times?
Now, when I see Jenna Marbles on Chelsea Lately, my universe will have aligned to a degree of such awesomeness that silver unicorns will slide down rainbows & land in vodka puddles in my front yard. Weeeeeee!
