Today, I’m supposed to interlink old blog posts. Considering that I only have a handful of posts to date, there’s very little to go on. However, you can get a slight primer of me by browsing through my old (ish) posts. You can find out what I like to do most of all. You can learn that I’m clumsy. And that I get cranky.
In addition, just because I feel like throwing it out there. I should probably let you know that in a lot of ways, I have unpopular opinions.
For example – I don’t like Coldplay. I know that most of the world thinks that Chris Martin is God, or at least a direct disciple of Bono (oh, we’ll get to him), but there’s MAYBE a song and a half of Coldplay’s that I like. Maybe a few more that I can tolerate. I bought one of their CDs, I bought into the hype. And found it painfully boring.
Going to the movies is torturous for me – for several reasons. I have ADD, so I don’t have the attention spam for 3 hours of plot. Remember back in the 1980s, when movies were about 80-90 minutes long? Yeah, that’s about where I max out. Also, the thought of being in a dark room, trapped with NO ESCAPE, is just terrifying. Not because I’m scared of the dark or of crowds. More like, there’s other things I could be DOING. I could be cleaning, or grocery shopping, or sleeping. There’s something I’m missing when I’m stuck in an uncomfortable seat struggling to pay attention. This is much to the chagrin of my boyfriend, who LOVES movies. I don’t know how to get over it, or past my issues.
There are a lot of things; however, that I am on par with at least a chunk of the of the rest of the world on. I enjoy Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert (when I catch their shows, that is). I like American Idol. I love train-wrecky VH1 Celebreality shows. I like fast food. But then again, I also like tofu. I love hip-hop, pop-punk, 80s, motown, choral music…the list goes on.
So there’s gotta be something in there that’s likeable about me, right? Did you notice how I tried to balance out the “I hate…” section with, “but I love…”? Yeah, I also hate confrontation and want to be a people pleaser.
