      My coworkers love her because “She’s a storyteller!”

      I can think of many bands that do the same thing without making aggressively mid music while doing so.

      I think she’s definitely a cut above your average pop singer just from sheer popularity, and most of her stuff isn’t bad but she definitely isn’t a super strong songwriter.

    Watching sports of any kind.

    I get made fun of for playing video games and shit meanwhile millions of people lose their shit over grown ass men chasing a ball.

    I’d be less insulting about it if I wasn’t ridiculed every time I bring up not liking sports.

      I remember an old reddit post about what it’s like to not like football by replacing it with archeology. I felt that in my soul.

        Honestly that’s why I hate sports. It started out as just disliking it but after working food service my whole life I’ve grown to hate sports due to how much it affects my job.

    Instagram. I have no interest in taking pictures or sharing things regularly. All the content looks so boring I don’t get the appeal. Even on an interesting post the comments are borderline spam fire emojis and people saying let’s go.

      It’s used to be just a way to share photos with family and friends, those days are long gone, it’s just ads and fuckwits.

      Live TV is great. I have a live feed of a stork nest in the background, and you get to see it feed its chicks, teach them to fly, and murder a few depending on mood.

      I hate commercials but sometimes still put on the live TV because I get really bad choice paralysis with streaming. Tv gives me a handful of options to narrow down. Even if i don’t love what I’m watching I don’t have to manually decide to pick it

    Any social media platform where you follow people instead of topics.

    I have to just sort of flail about in the void looking for people in my same niche to follow, and by the exact same token, no one will ever look at anything I post unless one of the Popular Accounts™ re-shares it. What’s worse, a re-share from a person with a lot of followers has more value than a re-share from an average Joe. That never sat right with me – the idea that one person’s opinions on what was and wasn’t good were more valuable than everyone else’s, and that everyone therefore competed for that person’s attention.

      That does make me miss how Facebook and Twitter used to be utilized with friends following each other and posting content that they made and not simply reposting everything that comes their way.

      I do value the opinion of people I know but I want hear them say it not some larger personality.

      It really was excellent in its infancy, once you’d honed your algorithm. Some of the funniest, sharpest content on the internet at the time, with a really tight knit in-joke machine - reminiscent of early internet communities. It boomered up and burnt out, but there was certainly a spark there.

    Going to loud parties with more than 5 people. 1) loud things hurt my ears and give me a headache. 2) can’t hear the person you’re talking to anyways bc of loud. 3) why are there 50 people here? Past 5 ppl, you can’t really talk to people well and the space gets crowded.

    Great for you if that’s your thing but not me.

    Driving. If it’s far enough away, I can ask for a ride. If it’s any closer, I can walk. Most things I can walk to. I don’t trust myself behind the wheel and don’t feel comfortable contributing to the damage done by vehicles.

      I don’t think driving’s really an activity that people get into, except in a small percentage of enthusiasts. Most people just drive because it’s less inconvenient than the alternatives.

      I’m going to be honest. I’d be really annoyed if somebody kept asking me for a ride because they don’t want to be a driver. I also hate driving but it’s necessary where I live for most cases.

      Hopefully you’re taking the inconvenience to others into account when asking for a ride to places.

    Watching TV series’s. As a maker, I really just went to be making stuff all the time, and having to sit and dedicate my time to watching a show really does not interest me. I do like watching longform Nebula content while I’m doing other things though, like Philosophy Tube or Jet Lag: The Game. I also like reading books, just not tv or movies most of the time

      Same for me and gaming. Thing is, I love games and always will, but I just don’t have time in my day for it. Solution? Wait a year, read reviews of 1 or 2 best games of the year and then binge them 3 days straight without sleep and trainers (to level past the grindy aspects) until I’m sick of them.

      Same with binge TV for me. Its just easier on my schedule if I can dedicate a one off time to it. It keeps me up to date with social trends, whilst not being a dominating factor in my life.
