I'm a really nice person. I am crazy about Harry Potter and the corresponding fandom. I'm an independent individual who wants to make a difference and help people. I haven't decided if I want to persue a career in mental health, or physical therapy, as past experiences have led me to an interest in both. I would also love to be a dolphin trainer. I'm afraid of getting old and not living life to the fullest. I want to travel the world, try scary things that'll get my adrenaline going, be spontaneous, and really experience life. While I'm young, and alive. The clock is ticking. So I've got a lot to do, I want to get started as soon as possible. Anyways...I call myself an arctic night owl, and all of my creative inspiration comes to me late at night. I'm pretty random, as you can probably tell, and weird. Proud to be weird, because I hate conformity. Just be yourself, trying to "fit in" is a waste of time. And don't build walls either, been there done that, and it's really not worth it, trust me. I want tattoos, and I'm determined to get my first on my seventeenth birthday. That one is going to be a Harry Potter tribute, but I still haven't decided what to get. I'm getting this tattoo because of my love for this book series, which has always been there for me, as a comfort and an escape from difficult times in my life. At the end of the day I knew that I could count on being able to escape from my thoughts into this magical world. I really want to get a Harley-Davidson (grey) for my transportation later on. I've always been a biker girl at heart, and I have this dream of having my own Harley and going on other various motorcycle road trips with my Dad. My tattoos would fit in nicely with the whole look too, even if some of them are geeky, hehe. Honestly, why would you want to drive in a car, when you could be on a Harley? I have fought my whole life to be seen and accepted as an adult. To be taken seriously. My siblings are a great deal older than me, and I always hated that. I didn't hate that they were older, but that I was younger...there is a difference. It drives me crazy that only when you start to look like an adult, are you treated like one. This has been the worst ongoing frustration for me. On a different subject, I just want to say that the grass is NOT neccesarily greener on the other side, so don't assume it is. Instead, I assume that every person I've met has had some really hard times in their past, just like I have. Just don't pity yourself, saying that someone can't possibly understand something you're going through, when you don't really know that much about them. And nobody is perfect no matter how much they seem/act that way.
I can roll my stomach sideways. If you are a friend of mine reading this, and you haven't seen me roll my stomach, please feel free to ask me. I have no objection with requests! It's really cool and I don't want anyone missing out.
Never judge something you can't understand.
What Gives Me Hope
A new Democratic President.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I would immediately bring our troops home from Iraq. Over 4000 lives. It makes me furious. After that, I would put a ban on hunting. Although, if you need to hunt to survive that would be okay. Only to survive, because if there's an alternative, you better take it. I would also make sure that wolves and many other animals stay on the Endangered Species List.
What/who changed my life and why
Being a gymnast has taught, or reinforced in me, discipline, focus, respect, strength, faith, and how amazing it is to have teammates who love and support you, and vice versa. I have learned that sometimes you just have to make sacrifices, and you can't always do what you want or would rather do. That you can never be perfect, but that doesn't mean you're a failure. I have worked through the pain of injuries, sometimes a few at a time, been crazy scared and pushed myself to do it anyway, been nervous out of my mind, but still saluted and hit my routines, or whatever I was anxious about at the time. It all instilled in me a strengh that I will never let go of. I can only hope that someday I will feel again that sense of accomplishment I felt after doing all of the above. Gymnastics was my whole life...for years. Dealing with the fear, anxiety, and pain almost every day was just neccesary to learn and become the best person that I can be, and I understood that. The rewards are amazing and outweigh the bad times a million. It's an incredible experience to do Gymnastics, and I wouldn't change it for the world. The thing is, you NEED pain (physical and emotional) in order to grow and strengthen yourself. Anyone who shakes their head and says that no one should voluntarily put themselves through testing things such as these, just doesn't understand the inherent benefit and neccesity. I don't want this sport to sound massochistic. It really is a fun, fantastic, and awesome experience. It seems a risky sport to most, and it's true that it has the highest injury rate, above football, but the way you build up and progress is very safe. Trust me when I say that the coaches know what they're doing, and they know what you can and can't do. Even when you don't. Gymnastics changed my life, and outlook, in too many ways to count.
