This Thing People Younger Than Me Call An “Infection”
It all started with a link — a “tweeted” link, actually. After that, I practically waited ONE week before I decided to post something about my entry’s focus for this day. You know, just to make sure that what I feel is legit… After all, “it” happened oh so fast — thanks to my friend Jeselle!!!
Oh yes, I needed ONE week to really convince myself that I’m indeed a fan of, none other than, One Direction (or 1D for short)
But I have to be honest. The first time I saw their music video on a local music channel, the first thing I thought of was:
“A boyband? In the year 2012?! Oh not again…”
And then I kept hearing their songs almost everywhere. Nada.
And then I found out that they’re British. Oh-kaaay… but still not enough.
And then Jesselle finally sent me something on Twitter, telling me that the link she provided reminded her of me since I love everything British…
I watched it… found them very charming… and then realized that they were the same people on THAT music video I didn’t give much attention to the first time I saw it…
After pressing “replay” a few more times, watching related videos here and there, and basically spending more time on YouTube than expected (almost 6 hours!), I stumbled upon THAT music video again. But unlike before, my eyes were finally glued to the screen, my ears were finally listening rather than hearing, and overall, I just saw “What Makes You Beautiful” in a whole new light:
That’s when it hit me. I finally got the so-called “Direction Infection” — which usually affects younger people. But hey, Jesselle and I can be the “exception” to this “infection!” =))
And of course, just like Ronan Keating (Boyzone) and Nicky Byrne (Westlife) from the nineties, I also have my eyes on a particular 1D member: HARRY STYLES. ♥
Watch the following video to know why Harr-eh‘s oh sooo “lovely” to me! Gaaah~
To prove that I’m far from being “cured” of this “infection” (not that I want to be anytime soon!), I bought 1D‘s debut album in less than 24 hours of being “infected.” Haha!
I know, I know. I’m already too old for this kind of stuff… but as One Direction “sang” it,
And I don’t plan on doing anything about it, but simply ENJOY it while I’m
still already not-so-young and not-so-beautiful. Wahahahaha! Heard enough of IT? Okay, great!
