There are just certain things that our friends and family don't like. I'd like to think that we all have a genre or artist we queue up when we're alone. We're in guilty pleasure territory. For you it might be ABBA, One Direction or Trap Rap but for me it's Math Rock.
I don't wear my veteran status on my sleeve as some do—quite literally. Certainly, everyone has the right to choose how to define themselves. We all—in fact—put up a screen through which we want to be viewed.
