I am so not a fan of change. I don't appreciate having to do things differently - especially just because someone else said I had to. Oh, sure, some change is good. I like that we're able to use computers instead of typewriters and that more people survive surgery because of the technological advancements. Stuff like that is awesome.
Nope, I'm talking about the little changes that are forced on us by other people because... Well, I'm not exactly sure why. Like the constant upgrades to computer software. Dudes, that shit was working AWESOME until you decided it needed tweaking - and now it's broke. (I'm looking at you Microsoft and Facebook and Gmail.)
I also like change when it's something I've decided to change. And in the way I'VE decided to change it. Like a haircut. I change my hairstyles every time I get my hair cut. (Which can be as many as 4 times a year or as few as 2.) But I get to decide what I want my hair to look like. Right? Yeah, not so much. More often than not, I end up with the hair dresser's concept of what my hair ought to look like. So instead of edgy, I look like this:
(Not that I don't love Dorothy, but I had that hairstyle when I was twelve, and I took a lot of teasing because of it.)
My change? My choice.
Don't even get me started on the health insurance changes that are currently being forced upon me. (Got the letter Saturday... still pissed...) I could rant for pages, but I won't.
It's not that I can't change. Hell, last year I moved to entirely unfamiliar state and that went well. (Because it was something we CHOSE to do.) But like New Coke, changing things for the sake of changing things usually just sucks.
What about you? What do think of change?
