I don't hate anything that's 'in', I just hate being pestered. It's boring and makes me grumpy. Everywhere I look there's hype. Hype on social media, hype at the Oscars, hype at work, hype at the gym, hype in my real world, hype in my virtual world. Hype, hype, hype. And then I had a double epiphany: hype has killed my cultural mojo!!!
Keeping tension and drama going for 90 minutes or two hours is hard enough, but over an entire series or even multiple series could be challenging. Of course, I'm being picky, the truth is I loved it. For me the most exciting thing is I feel there is so much more to come and so many more questions to be answered...
I have cerebral palsy but I've never let it hold me back. Growing up, I was bullied but I quickly learnt not to back down... A bruise will heal, a cut will heal, but when you let someone take away who you are, it's more damaging than any broken bone and deeper than any cut. By standing up for myself, people no longer just saw my disability. It shouldn't define you. I just happen to have CP.
So after a week, a lot of sleepless nights, and watching the same Natwest advert over and over again (the one with a little girl so adorable she makes me want to claw out my own heart just to stop myself from crying - seriously I can't cope), I am finally up to speed with the Game Of Thrones bandwagon.
