I don't like NPR. There I said it.

I don’t like NPR. There I said it.

I’m a smart girl. I have a Masters Degree in International and Intercultural Communication (sounds fancy right?) I read smart books. I watch smart movies. ( I do however watch tragically DUMB tv) but I can’t stand NPR. I don’t like their mellow voices. That is all there is to it.

Worse than not liking NPR is being judged for not liking NPR.

You don’t listen to NPR?
I don’ t like it. I’ve tried. I just don’t like it.
Oh. Not even This American Life?

One of my biggest, craziest fears is that I will die without reading all the books I want to read. Therefore, I listen to books in the car. And sometimes I listen to one of my girlfriends who is on a morning radio show. And sometimes I have dance parties. And sometimes I sing really loudly to the Glee soundtracks. With hand motions.

My friend’s little boy doesn’t like chocolate… people are like what! You don’t like chocolate?

So to him and to everyone else out there who is left handed, or has never seen a Star Wars movie, or still has a Myspace… it’s ok to not like NPR. It’s ok to not like chocolate. It's ok to be different.
