I don't care in the slightest if anyone finds this and gets offended by it. I post what I like here, because, after all, it is MY LiveJournal, and if someone decides they don't like it, that's too bloody bad for them. And if anyone decides they don't want to read anything I post here - i.e. about my faith - then don't read it. Just skip over it. I understand some people aren't interested when I talk about my faith and would rather not read it, and I'm not offended in the slightest if anyone skips it because when I was an atheist, I would've done just that.
I love being apathetic about this ... only thing is, I don't want to slip any further into apathy. I've done that before, and I've found it not to be good. I've become quite distant from most people apart from my close friends ... and this isn't good for me. I'm a very shy person and can be quite nervous about meeting new people or going places where no-one I know is, but at the same time, I love to be around people I know and love. Some people at school think I'm quite a cold person - 'heartless' and 'unfeeling' are accusations I've had thrown my way before - but inside, I'm not; I love to ... well, love. So being apathetic rather goes against who I naturally am.
Different topic now.
Annual speech competition I usually compete in is coming up soon. Topics to choose from are;
The Other Side
Rich And Poor
The Funny Side
The Last Laugh
I'm not sure which to do. I could do a humorous speech on Winning Ways, and I loathe most Reality TV so I could probably speak quite passionately on that topic, but I'm really not sure. I've competed twice in the past - last year I was too ill on the day. 2000, I did a humorous piece about Surviving School, with which I nearly won (and when I performed it for the grade, had them in stitches). 2001, I did a serious piece on why the Gold Coast needed a tramway and got knocked out in the semi-finals (considering I was an emotional wreck at the time, I performed very below standard and nearly didn't go). Personally, I prefer presenting entertaining, humorous pieces because the audience enjoys them, so I may go for something funny along the lines of Winning Ways.
