This Is How I Define Who I Am

this is how i define who i am

I do not define myself as any one thing. So much of what I do, what I say, how I act defines who I am. To pick one thing alone would be impossible.

I am a simple girl who does but simple. I do not think 1, 2 and 3. I think fast and uncoordinatedly. I do not accept what I am given. I question everything, look at the bigger picture. In doing so, I see many opinions and see many views. But I am not opinionated. I see various arguments on both sides- hard to choose at times.

However, if I see something I strongly believe, I will join and fight for the cause. Every bit counts, even if it is small. There are a few organizations I am in support of, primarily for my friends and family. I will do anything for those that I love. I will pull out all the stops for them no matter what.

I’m a sweetheart who is beyond loyal to my friends. But if you get on my bad side, you’ll be sorry. I’m blatantly honest and will tell the truth even if it’s incredibly harsh. I lay down no mercy.

Even though I think fast and see many opinions, doing anything in a standardize, normal way is overly complicated. I understand the material, but the tests scare me like crazy. I do the work but at times it’s difficult. I believe the tests show who we are and what we are capable of. I have problems with test and learning and though I do my best I still do terrible at times. My intellect really shows in the things I love.

My passions are music and photography. There is never a moment when I don’t have a song in my head or when I feel like singing. I’ve taught myself the guitar and keyboard and I’ve been singing for as long as I could remember. Whenever I go someplace I constantly take photos of everything that surrounds me. I see beauty in everything.

Hobbies to me are developing passions. Mine are art, jewelry making and acting. If I have a pen in my hand and a piece of paper in front of me, I’m set. It doesn’t matter the time or place, I will always be doodling. Jewelry making is fun and easy. I believe that if I make my own jewelry I won’t have to spend so much money on buying it. Acting is fun and a good stress reliever. I’m full of boundless energy and release it through acting. I can be anything I want when acting. This makes me want to learn more.

Branching from my love of art is turning old things into new things. It saves the environment and money. You can take anything and make it new, purposeful and beautiful. I also love it as it helps the environment. I want to try to save it all, before it is completely destroyed and lost.

From all of this, I think better in creativity. It is easier and how I see everything. I love it. I want to pursue more into creativity. But, unfortunately, many people have stepped on my imaginations and turned them into hopeless fantasies that will go nowhere. But slowly I’m gaining my confidence again. One day I will be able to do all that I love.

There are many ways in which I define myself. There is no single way. There is too much about me that I believe cannot go unsaid.
