i like the little pokemon things on my desk

I needed that post about not being ashamed for doing “childish” things. I have tons of figures and small plushies on my desk at work and I get so much shit for it (but on a white on white color scheme for the workstation - I need the colors or I will go mad). I also keep pokemon keychains on my backpack I take to work.

My bedroom is nothing but plushies, video game and book stacks, and figures and throw blankets and art supplies.

I still read comics and the like.

I also have cutesy little accessories that I wear with my work clothes (like a fairly plain rebel alliance necklace, achievement hunter pin, TARDIS necklace, Jason Bourne dog tags), etc. 

Why should I have to give up things I like and make me comfortable for the approval of people?
