The Lovely E over at Strong Enough to Break (awesome blog – check it out) nominated me to do the Love/Hate challenge. Sounds like an easy enough thing to do on a busy Friday. Plus it’s nice to have a break from constant school shit. And I’ve been too damn switchy to write a full post lately. But also – thank you so much to all of you who’ve been responding to Julia and River. That is so awesome.


Things I Love:
  1. My wife and our tribe.
  2. Doing well in my academics/career.
  3. Culture! (art, museums, theatre, dance, photography, etc).
  4. Sunlight on my face.
  5. Genuine kindness and compassion.
  6. Fancy coffee. Or cheap coffee. Especially with good company.
  7. Tiny ethnic restaurants with food I’ve never heard of before.
  8. Being really contained and buried under the blankies with our stuffies and the fans gently blowing on me.
  9. Anything nerdy (especially nerdy + feminist).
  10. Getting cards or letters in the mail.
Things I Hate:
  1. Abuse of any form to any living creature
  2. Any “ism” (racism, classism, ageism, homophobia, misogyny, etc).
  3. Crowds!
  4. Having my neck touched or being scared (like when people jump out at you and think it’s funny until I punch them in the face)
  5. Doctors, hospitals, medication, therapists
  6. People that are arrogant, manipulative, narcissistic, patronizing, self-righteous, liars, bullies, etc…
  7. The phrase, “that’s just the way he/she/they are” (um, no. CHOICES, people!)
  8. Feeling full or almost full, even if it’s water.
  9. When my eye makeup smudges.
  10. Misrepresenting myself/being inarticulate.
My Nominees:

Anyone who reads this blog and does stuff like this ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, exactly. Even my wife (whom I trust very much) upsets me when she touches my neck. It’s like an instant trigger and I feel like I’m going to die. Weirdly common “hate”.
