"I don't care about my Guilty Pleasure..." Oh, yeah RIGHT!

So anyhow...

Time to talk about Guilty Pleasures. You know you have 'em...oh yeah, you definitely do. Don't deny it. I can see it in your imaginary face.

Trust me, you're not alone. Your guilty pleasure might be dancing—and hey, nothing's wrong with that. Someone else's might be cooking...yummy.

Personally, mine




Okay okay, I'll tell you...I love to sing. *someone chokes out of disbelief* In fact, it's not even a guilty's sort of my passion. It's really weird telling this to the world, especially because I've never been public about it. The only one time I actually sing to a certain other person is my aunt. She's my singing buddy, right Tina? ;). And that's mainly because she introduced me to the world of music, and I have a lot to thank her for.

But of course, if you all know, I'm seriously shy. I don't know why, but it's in my head, and I can't get it out. That's why I hesitate to do any sort of public speaking (let alone, sing). I know this is a main problem to a lot of other people out there too. They're too afraid to show what their passion is, their ultimate dream. This brings it all back to my peer pressure article back down there. People are too afraid to do what they love to do the most because they're afraid of what their friends and family might think of it (same case as for me). And you know what, I know I'm a hypocrite in saying this, but just show people your real natural talent. Sometime in the future, whether it's near or far, you'll see the benefits of expressing yourself.

So remember—be as genuine to yourself as much as possible. You won't regret it.
