One week from today Christmas will be here and that also means its one week away from the Doctor Who Christmas Special! Although I am looking forward to see what Peter Capaldi can bring to the Doctor I don’t want Matt Smith too go =(
Matt Smith has been such a hero for me, he came along when I found it a hard time to believe that men can be kind at all. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my brothers, cousins, Uncles and my Grandfather was an amazing human being. I’m related to them though and they are so amazing! My brother and my cousins, especially the ones I grew up with, are younger than me and they ALL own their own businesses, successful in their fields and are amazing cooks! Most importantly they are who they are and they are not ashamed of that. I’m very proud of them.
This year really made me question though the way I had been treated, not just by my ex’s, especially the last one, but also by my guy friends. It started to make me realise that if I had dated my guy friends, I would have dumped pretty much all of them by now, the way they treat women. Most being in their thirties and in serious long term relationships. They publicly hit on high school girls and constantly “two-face” each other behind each other’s backs for doing the exact same things. They humiliated me publicly over a one night stand I had that I didn’t realise they knew about, without asking me why, since I’ve never done it before or since.
I needed to believe in guys outside of my family and that’s what Matt Smith did for me. He is so quirky and adorable and lovable and the speeches! I know that he plays a part, but since I’ve done drama and ballet and have been on the stage pretty much all of my life. I know that when someone performs the way he does, especially in his amazingly powerful speeches (See “Rings of Akhaten” speech, also known as “The Long Song”) there is something inside of that person that is really truly there. He’s always just so humble and children just seem to think he’s silly and the funniest thing ever. Matt Smith proved to me that you don’t have to have the biggest muscles, be the most well-put together or be the most coordinated to be a hero. You just have to be you, be real, be true, and be kind. Matt Smith is one of a kind. I shall miss him so much…Luckily with today’s easy internet global world, I can pretty much buy with his face on it and download his speeches.
Matt Smith shall always be a hero to me and I don’t think I could ever thank him enough for what he’s done and what he’s been able to make believe in again.
I thank you Matt Smith.
