What Is Your Glitch?

Everyone has one. It is what defines us from each other. Some call it gifts, some call it talents, others call it passion, but I call it a glitch.

Why a glitch? Well, partly because I am a geek and I like tech terms. ;P

The other reason is because of the information/technology age. Think about it this way. Computers and electronics are made and sold on a daily basis. Some of them turn out to be lemons and some of them never seem to have any problems. The typical computer, however, usually has some glitch that no one can explain and no one else seems to get. I once had a computer that gave me at least ten blue screens a day if I was lucky. I never really found out what the problem was until it completely crashed and I had to take it in for repairs. I still don’t entirely know, but I have a feeling it had something to do with the video card, motherboard, and the power supply.

I have a completely new computer now (and its a beast of a machine), but I’ve run into quite a new problem. About six months ago Vista Aero decided to disable itself. I also have games that freeze at random times and it seems I don’t quite get all the power out of the video card I have. The problem with my new computer is the video card, that is its glitch. I guess in a way this “glitch” separates this computer I am currently typing this post on from the rest of them.

I don’t mean this in a negative way at all, but the same idea applies to people. Each and every one of us has a glitch of some kind. Something that sets us apart. Something that marks who we are. Something that The Designer put into us that He could work through.

What is your glitch? What sets you apart from the rest of us? Embrace it. Don’t let anyone try to “fix it” or tell you otherwise.
