Sometimes I get tired of not fitting in

October 17th, 2008

I live my life as a contradiction.

I’m a pro-life agnostic.

I like sappy music and violent movies.

I listen to NPR constantly (but spend most of my time yelling at the radio).

I tend to vote conservative and buy Apple computers. (Which is less weird than it used to be.)

Sometimes, cialis usa thumb I just wish I fit all the characteristics of a stereotype…any stereotype.

I’m sure it’s very nice to have a few beers at the ballpark Saturday night, go to Church Sunday morning, and listen to Charlie Sykes on Monday morning.

Just as I’m sure it’s wonderful to drink some wine at a gallery opening Friday night, listen to All Things Considered on Saturday morning, and go to an Obama rally on Sunday.

It must be comforting (and comfortable) to be surrounded by a community of people who believe all the same things you do.

I know I’m too much of a contrarian to ever have much in common with anyone else.

But, sometimes I wish things were different. Or, at least, that I was.

    That’s what you get for thinking for yourself.

    You’re not a contradiction…you’re nuanced!

    I think the word you were looking for, Zach, is nuisance. ;)

    No, that’s a word often used to describe me…most frequently by my wife.

    A person has got to be true to themselves, and there is not one person that is all conservative or all liberal.

    If they try to tell you or act as if they are all one way or the other, they are only being a hypocrite and a liar.

    One must be true to oneself above all else.

    There is not one person that is all conservative or all liberal. If someone tries to portray themselves that way, that only means that they are a liar or simply being hypocritical.

    It is the us vs. them mentality that is causing the strife. Ignore the blowhards and be yourself. Well, you know, not the wheelchair guy.
