    I Like Shiny objects

    Low Attention Spans, Anyone? :p

    I enjoy the unique, but my attention span is getting to be extremely low for anything that's NOT. I am judging things too quickly... If I hear a new song that sounds like something else, I lose interest. A book labelled a genre I will quickly judge. Uhh... yeah.
