i'm coming out...

i am a firm believer that one of the most important things in life is one's ability to laugh at him or herself. that said, i laugh at myself all the time. when i catch a glimpse of myself prancing around my bedroom in my underwear, dancing and singing like a fool, i laugh at myself. when i trip, i laugh at myself. when i mess up, i laugh and say "oopsie daisy!" (i'm not kidding. i say things like oopsie daisy, okey dokey, and sorry charlie all the time. thats how big of a dork i am). now, it's time for us all to share a good laugh at my expense, because i'm coming out as a former backstreet boy addict. yes, when i was 17 years-old, i was obsessed. and i mean ob-freaking-sessed. my love for the band was so strong that i even assigned each of my friends their personal backstreet boy, whose nickname they would assume, and about whom they had to know everything (like favorite foods, colors... you know, the important stuff).

i held a particularly special place in my heart for one backstreeter, the one and only nick carter (LIKE OMFG!!!! HE'S FIIIINE). obviously, he was my personal bsb-boyfriend, so i gave myself his nickname and took it upon myself to spend hours reading about him online and in ridiculous magazines like teen beat. one day, i decided that i would write a "101 reasons to love nick carter" list, and submit it to my favorite website, backstreet.net! and, omg! they totally posted my article!!! years later, my list is still floating around the internet. google "101 reasons to love nick carter" and mine will be the first thing that pops up (i'm thinking of putting that proud fact on my resume, actually). but to save you the effort and embarrassment of having "101 and reasons to love nick carter" pop up in your google history, you'll find the list, in it's entirety, below. enjoy! and don't laugh too hard.
