A large part of growing up is gaining new obsessions. While it's happening, we like to believe that, 'It's not a phase, mom!' But it doesn't take too long to realize, yep, that was definitely a phase. For example, I used to be obsessed with Spongebob. Yeah, Mr. Squarepants. I actually wanted him painted all over my room. I guess I thought I was going to forever be into iconic Nickelodeon shows... but alas, this phased probably lasted no longer than 6 months.
People are sharing the things they used to be obsessed with that they didn't exactly take with them into their adult life. Classic.
