This is most likely going to be changed a few times, but I feel the need to at least start with something so I can expand.
I definitely believe in learning from experience and so I choose to do experiments to get out of the four cornered box. An example would be not washing my hair for as long as I could stand, to see what would happen. Shaving my head, to see how it would feel and the reactions I would get. Going vegan, then turning to vegetarian 6 months later and it has now been 4 years. The list goes on, but the point is I like to see from different perspectives and see how the other people live. The way they live it every day, day in and day out.
I like to think I am open-minded, patient, kind, respectful and honest. I say what’s on my mind, because I feel that’s the way the world should work. I don’t think we should beat around the bush, or say differently then what we are thinking. People are afraid of reactions, opinions and other people’s words. If we were not afraid of that and said to ourselves “I honestly don’t care what you think, this is how it is” our world might just end up being better off. I know since I have adapted this way of life, it has greatly improved my ability to socialize and decreased my stress at least 70%.
Being quirky, is probably one of my best qualities. Going with the being very honest trait they definitely compliment each other. I love Halloween, dressing up, dancing in the street, doing the unexpected, rarely turn down a dare, love a good challenge, not afraid to talk to strangers, the list goes on. I appreciate good art whether it be through a musical medium, paint, abstract, pastels, pen, etc. I tend to be good at almost everything I try, *knock on wood* that it doesn’t go away.
In my first post I talked about direction of my life not because I’m lost or anything but I just don’t have a path I’m following. I went to college for one out of three years for child and youth worker, and have just been working ever since. I have worked at a daycare, theatre, city maintenance, subway, McDonald’s, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, jewellery stores, northern reflections, a library, a waitress, the list goes on. Yet, I feel unaccomplished and that I’m not doing what I really want. This feeling goes hand and hand with the fact that I always feel school is just out of my reach. Then again, would school get me to be where I want to be? And where do I want to be?
This is the question that I shall leave us all to ponder about. Where do I want to be? Where do you want to be?
Since a child we have said, “Are we there yet ??!”
