Being Open, Being Real, Being Me

For Power Rangers' 20th birthday, I made a video celebrating it. And in said video, I stated that, "I am not ashamed to be a Power Rangers fan".

Well thinking about it now, I wonder how true that is. Don't get me wrong, I love the show, and I have been making YouTube videos discussing various aspects of it for two years now. These videos are public and on the internet, so clearly there is a part of me that doesn't give a fuck who knows.

However... if I truly didn't care who knows, why is it that I don't tell too many people in my real life that I like PR? I can count on my fingers the number of friends and family that are aware of my love of PR, my YouTube channel, my Twitter, my Instagram, and my Blog. Why is that? Am I that worried about how they will react? Eh, maybe. I think I'd feel weird knowing that they are watching me and seeing just how geeky I can really be. And you know I can be really geeky. Plus I don't want them saying my real name on my channel. That's something I want to keep private.

But the older I get, the less fucks I have to give about many things. If I want to make real and strong friendships, then I need to start being more open with people. Yes, I like geeky things. I like PR. I like anime. I know way too much about both PR and Naruto. Deal with it!

Believe it or not, I am a private person by nature, so I'm not opening up about everything in my life. Only a chosen few ever get that close to me, and I pretty much have those positions filled (Sup guys). However, I can tell people I like PR. I can tell people I vlog about the show on YouTube. Who cares? If they do, then I shouldn't be fucking with them anyway.


  1. lol relax Asdeclassified the answer is pretty simple, the reason you've told few people about PR is simply because it rarely comes up in conversation, I mean think about other shows you watch that might be more "normal" how many people actually know u watch those shows maybe a few more people nothing major though, and it was probably just because it came up in conversation.

    1. lol I get what you're saying. But I could definitely bring up "I run a YouTube channel" in a conversation lol In fact, I've wanted to many times, but I don't because then they'd ask what I talk about.

      Eh I'll let more people know eventually. I'm cool, I'm relaxed lol
