( sorry I took so long on this one, theoreticalconstruct … I had a really crappy week )
SO THESE ARE ACTUALLY BOTH HARD? For very different reasons! But hey, let’s do both. Years first, because PEDANT
Okay. This is again years that are significant to me, not like top 5 most important years in history, screw that, who am I to know. Anyway!
… I’m sorry, I am just so eternally pissed at this man and his issues that I am having trouble coming up with four more years. Screw that guy so hard, jesus.
Stuff that makes me happy! SO actually this is hard because I have hella depression and it can be pretty hard for me to figure out what actually makes me happy? But it’s a good exercise for me! So.
Okay fine I lied about the 5 years in history thing. I just seriously get super mad about Augustine okay.
OKAY LOOK I KNOW EXACTLY WHY YOU PICKED THIS ONE
I’ll get there okay
he’s on the list. I’m not leaving him off just to spite you
Anyway. As usual I have to nitpick the interpretation of the question (how is ‘celebrity’ defined? favourite in what sense?), so in this case I’m looking at people who are currently alive and in the public eye, and I’m going with… personal picks: people who I personally follow or who mean something to me in a positive way, rather than my opinions on like THE awesomest celebrities out there right now. Though clearly I think these people are pretty awesome.
I also have a complicated relationship with celebrity culture. It makes me uncomfortable in terms of horrible media/news being horrible, invasiveness, privacy, and idolization, even as I’ve tentatively started participating in it (rather than just living in it). So this is a bit weird for me, but here goes, in no particular order!
So I realize the primary list is almost entirely male, but I felt I should be honest rather than try to put someone on here I don’t feel as strongly about, and use this as an opportunity to reflect on my media consumption and who I pay attention to, cause there are certainly tons of awesome ladies and other folks I could be paying attention to.
