FFX is one of my favorite games. Except for the laughing scene, which will always make me and everyone else cringe.
Music things off the top of my head:
1. Neil Young. Early in high school I couldn't stand Neil Young, his voice annoyed me and I thought his guitar playing was meandering and sub-par. Now I love him though.
2. Punk Music. I'm talking New York Dolls, The Wipers, and stuff like that. I was never into older punk but over the past year that has changed a lot. Watch out, next thing you know I might grow a mohawk.
I, too, used to dislike tomatoes but they're pretty rad. I could eat them on a lot of things. Onions are the same deal.
College. My first year of college I really didn't like it, not until the summer session at least. I was in a new place, and constantly busy with classes and athletics so I didn't make many connections until late in the year but then I pulled a 180 with my interests and everything else the second year and wouldn't have traded the past few years for anything.
