Based on an assignment called "You Know What I Hate"

 This is an intentionally raw, unedited piece of writing. Sometimes you gotta just vent.

You know what I hate….I hate when I fail…You know what I hate? I hate when I‘m misunderstood…You know what I hate? I hate when I think that I really am right about something in that in-your-gut way…But actually I am DEAD wrong. You know what I hate? I hate wasting time. I hate disappointing people that I respect. I hate not hitting the ball out of the park. I hate, hate, hate when there is only one way to do something. I hate when someone tells me that I’m bad or wrong or stupid for not believing what they believe or the way they believe. I hate when someone judges before they have looked at the entire situation. I hate when people resist the change they want to be. I hate when someone refuses to self reflect or refuses to try because they don’t think they can do it “right”. I hate waiting to hear if something is a "yes" or "no" because I always think that if it’s going to be a yes, then it will be immediate–like if someone asks you to marry them and there’s any kind of hesitation before the "yes", you know it really should have been a "no". I hate rules…arbitrary, one-dimensional, no-exception-no-matter-what rules…I hate when someone doesn’t trust the professional to do the job…

I hate using the word hate because it’s too definite and while I am decisive, there’s nothing in me that is definite or all one way except to say that I am always hardworking and that is a definite.
