Things You Should Know About Me (vol. 1)

1] The fastest way to lose my respect is to poke fun at a mentally disabled person. Or a physically disabled person. Or at the colour of a person’s skin, their sexual orientation, their religion. The way they choose to live their lives. The way they were born. My greatest pet hate is intolerance. And yes, I am aware of the irony. I don’t tolerate intolerance. There is enough pain and heartache in this world without someone having to deal with being bullied by a person no better than them. In fact, by a lesser person than them.  Bigotry in any form is a sign of weakness, a sign of cowardice. Be nice to people. Life’s much more fun when you are.

2] I don’t eat garlic or chilli. Yup, I’m practically a heathen. In my defence I’m actually allergic to chilli. The garlic I have no excuse for.

3] Actually, I guess I am a heathen. That’s what believers call atheists, right?

4] I don’t drink. It’s not a big deal, unless you make it a big deal. There’s no big story. I’m not pregnant, religious (as discussed) or weird. Well, okay. Probably a little bit weird but not because of the no drinking thing. I just don’t drink alcohol. No biggie. And it definitely doesn’t mean I’m not going out. All it means in your life is that you have a designated driver and a cheap date. Embrace it.

5] I love talent. I love it in all its forms. Writing, acting, singing, design, sport. I love watching a person live out their passion and do it well. I love seeing the beauty that comes with talent. The movement of limbs, the structure of a sentence, the layout of an art piece. I love to experience a person’s imagination, to see the world in another way. Our greatest gifts as human beings are our passions, our talents. So use them.

That’s me.
