Couples are frequently talking about entirely different events while discussing the same event. Or they will identify qualities within a person like "She was so angry with me" and as I was sitting right there I could see that it was not happening that way. Allowing for my own warped sense of reality I am often amazed at those inconsistencies within an interaction between seemingly rational people.

Everyone has a different relationship with their home town, both growing up and as adults. Some can't wait to escape, others never want to leave. We all lead our own lives and must make these decisions for ourselves, so I would never judge someone for doing what makes them happy. But our home towns are just one tiny corner of a large planet, which has a whole lot of stuff to offer.

Embrace what makes you unique. Passion is a great quality in a person, so don't hide the things you enjoy, the things you are passionate about. Dye your hair an unusual colour. Get that tattoo. Go see your favourite band live. Take up that hobby you've been curious about. Act like a freak.

Politicians just don't listen to us these days - so goes probably the common, and personally most inane, refrain in current UK politics. But is there actually much truth to it? I don't think so. In fact, I think quite the opposite is true.

The Bigotry of Our Medieval Society

Everyone should have the same rights (I'm especially thinking of the marriage laws here), and be allowed to love who they want. In fact, "be allowed" isn't the right term here. No one has to give heterosexuals permission to love, so why do homosexuals need it?

I have developed the same cynicism as most fully grown adults, yet this is underpinned by a general hatred of all human beings, particularly customers. I still work in customer service as I work my way through my studies, and I have come to learn that my first screaming idiot customer, isn't all that unusual.
