The problem I have is that every person has their own different content within their active mind, and that is the cause of conflict.
I would love to do a podcast or a vlog with a doctor. It’s been on my mind for a while now. There would only be one rule: No discussions of ailments.
It’s time for me to play being a TV commissioning editor again: let’s see what I can come up with this time…
I am looking for the easy ability to strike up a conversation without ending up wittering something elaborately boring, or sensationalist, just because I have got carried away with the weirdness of being in a conversation.
Every social construct, if left to its own devices, starts to take on its own rules, its own customs. This can be linguistic, ceremonial, or in the forms of expected interactions.
I find conversations really hard work. I am shy, I am awkward and I am not the most comprehensible person when I speak.
If I know I’m about to have a tough time I like to put on a favourite t-shirt: It provides a sense of comfort.
