I don't know about you...but,

Oh dear. How it annoys me when it comes to dancing. I personally can not dance. I know I can't dance. I am frustrated and angry at people who try and get you to dance. I really can't dance and because I know I can't dance, I don't want to dance. I have danced before and I have humiliated myself. It would be so much better if people didn't constantly try and drag you to do things you really don't want to do. I know my mind, it has been made. It just makes me want to punch them in the face or kick them in the shin. The utter anger when they won't let it go and physically try to get you to do what they think is "fun". Quite frankly, dancing is not my idea of fun.

I enjoy watching dancing. But only on specific grounds. The dance must be choreographed and have shape and meaning. I hate watching people on dance floors just moving to the beat, without any form. Just head bopping, arm swaying, leg cropping, body swaying, grinding nonsense. Very uncivilized in my opinion. Choreographed dancing, whether it is hip-hop, jazz or ballet, I enjoy watching it. It has shape, line and a form. There is order and structure. Not chaos.

Another thing which annoys me is how people who don't understand your character and conditions make it seem so simple and just generalise you. Especially my parents about me not being able to swim. I apologize, but I do fear large areas of water. Anything bigger than a pond and I'm already terrified. If it's raining, I shiver. My parents, and a lot of other people, keep telling me, "Oh swimming is easy. We can just put you into a pool where the water is only up to your waist and you will never drown." Oh really? I won't drown? I don't know about you, but you're not in my position and I know you're trying to help me with my fear but chucking me into an area of water isn't helping. If anything, I am more terrified at what your logic is of trying to help me. Imbeciles. People who have fears don't just "get over them". There must be a process. Otherwise, you're going to freak the living daylights out of them and then what would you do? Spend more time trying to calm them back down having experienced the trauma of a dumping method used to treat fear. Well done.

So I end my rant here. I am annoyed at people trying to convince you to do things you quite frankly, just don't want to do. I hope those people who are out there convincing others persistently will stop. Recommendations are fine. Persistent nagging is not. There is a fine line between the two.

Enjoy the upcoming Easter break everyone!
