Passionately Quirky

*pokes head in*
*looks around*

I'm sorry!  It's been two weeks!  I hadn't realized it was so long-- I've been busy with school and friends and my sister (it's been her last couple weeks until she goes back to college) and... I've been ignoring you.  Hugs?


Okay.  Now that that is out of the way, I'm going to try a post similar to what the lovely Mirriam did with this post.

I AM... a girl.  Just a girl.  I have lots of quirks and faults, and sometimes people want me to be perfect, and I'm not.  I'm just a girl.

I'VE CRIED... in Harry Potter, Marley and Me, and Up, and in books.

I AM... nerdy.  I love Doctor Who and knitting and books, and I'm a Nerdfighter, and a two-time winner of NaNoWriMo.  And I'm not insecure about it-- I make a hundred Doctor Who and Nerdfighteria references a day, I talk about the Purple Elephants, my writing community on NaNoWriMo, books I'm reading, to anyone nearby.  So yes, I'm nerdy.  It's not an insult.  I'm proud to be a nerd.  

I LOVE... books.  I love reading them, holding them, smelling them, buying them, checking them out from the library.  They make me smile.

I SING... in the shower.  'Tis the truth.

I AM... clumsy.  Dreadfully clumsy.  I bump into things, fall over, wobble when I'm on a balance beam...


I PICK UP... random details.  Favorite movies, songs, plays, letters, numbers, colors, punctuation marks.  

I LOVE... to write.  I love crafting stories, coming up with characters, learning life lessons along with them.

I SOMETIMES... get discouraged.  But that's okay.  Everyone does.  You just have to know to pick yourself up again, to keep on trying.

I AM... a word person.  Not a number person.

I ADORE... quotes.  I put them all over my walls in my room.

I ARGUE... too much.  I argue with friends and parents and my sister, and I need to stop doing it so often.  I need to learn to let go, and just go with the flow, but sometimes it's hard.  

I HAVE TROUBLE... with math.  I don't always get it.  Sometimes the numbers just don't do what I want them to.

I DAY DREAM... about my stories.  My characters, their friends, their enemies, just simple days in their lives, even.

I ASPIRE... to be an author.  To craft stories that people love, and inspire them.

I LOVE... flying kites with my dad.  And not little kites, either.  Our biggest has a tail of 150 feet, and is (I'm guessing here) 25 X 25 feet.  We have a sand anchor for at the beach, and we have to nail it to the ground using stakes if we're not on a beach.  But it's so much fun.

I DANCE... lots.  I love it.  I take Irish dance, and I recently got my hard shoes.  


I AM... a girl.  Just a girl.  I have lots of quirks and faults, and sometimes people want me to be perfect, and I'm not.  I'm just a girl.  And you know what?  I'm happy.  As my mother put it one day, I am passionately quirky.  

I AM... a happy, passionately quirky person, and I'm not perfect.  And I'm okay with it.
