I have decided that I am going to fill in these journal prompts for my lovely readers. I have put the picture of the prompt below in case anyone who reads this would like to do it. Today I will be filling in Number One. I will fill in each prompt whenever the mood strikes but I will try to post one at least once a week. I hope that these posts make you feel as if you can get to know me through my writing.
25 Qualities (Many of these will contradict each other):
- Bossy. I am the first child in my immediate family and over the years that has developed into getting used to the feeling of being in charge. I like to think of myself as a good leader but I try to make everyone in a group feel like they can give their input. All ideas matter.
- Self-Centered. I don’t go around boasting about how great I am, mostly because that’s not how I feel, but I do let comments slip every once in a while when people challenge my instincts.
- Confident. I’m not the type of person to stand up in a crowded room and give a speech about what I believe in, but I will stand up for myself when I need to.
- Shy. What I will do in a room full of people is sit in the corner and not talk to anyone. It’s a sad reality.
- Secretive. I don’t like revealing things about myself. People have told me that it took a long time for them to get to know me. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog: to put myself out there
- Vague. As I said, I don’t usually reveal information if I don’t need to.
- Awkward. Pretty self-explanatory; we all have those awkward moments. It just seems to happen to me a little too often.
- Immature. I have my moments; we all have to act out sometimes.
- Very Mature. I act way beyond my age and it shows when people I don’t know try to guess my age. I am very conserved and well-behaved in a room full of strangers. This professional barrier gives off the impression that I am much older than I really am.
- Creative. I have always had a knack for coming up with ideas. Like all other good writers I faced a period of writer’s block. Once I overcame that, waves of inspiration came to me.
- Quirky. Everyday is a new challenge. Maybe I’m clumsy; maybe I have a tick; maybe I can’t stop itching my nose.
- Crazy. The quirks can make me a little nutty sometimes. But I think nutty is good for inspiration. The craziest people are usually the ones with the most unusual opinions, and that always makes for great writing perspectives.
- Obsessive. For short bursts of time I can become completely infatuated with a site, object, or idea. It doesn’t last very long though, depending on just how captivated I become. The desires always fade away.
- Detached. I have commitment issues. I can’t stick to anything too long unless I’m forced to. I become very detached to my schoolwork by the end of the year and with crushes sometimes I simply get bored. I have even come to face this lack of interest toward certain social media sites, like Instagram. It’s nothing against Instagram, I just can’t stand to check my feed for more than 5 minutes nowadays.
- Depressing. Sometimes I can make everyone in a room feel sorry or guilty.
- Upbeat. Sometimes I’m the highlight of the party.
- Misunderstood. Because I am so moody and unpredictable most people just don’t get me. For example, I want to be loved but I won’t let anyone in. Sometimes I let people in without thinking and it turns out that I’ve entrusted information in a person I severely dislike.
- Stressed. I’m always stressed about something. I think it has to do with how obsessive I can become. The stress usually derives from a plan I have because plans never work out the way I think they will.
- Stubborn. You think you can change my mind? Hah. Try me.
- Gullible. I really wish I wasn’t so gullible, but certain people can be terribly convincing.
- Confusing. I can play tricks oN yOuR mInD.
- Mean. Don’t get on my bad side. Half the time you won’t know you’re on it.
- Friendly. Honestly I try to be a nice person. I think I make pretty good first impressions when I am in a good mood and/or if you don’t catch me off-guard.
- Indecisive. Sometimes I can plan things out and have it down to the exact model and color of something that I want, but other times I can spend hours in store looking at just one rack of clothing.
- Different/Unique. Who else do you know that could say all of these things about themselves and still manage to write a decent blog post?
I hope you enjoyed reading that. If you guys can relate or if you’re confused about something I wrote feel free to comment below. Also, for the posts that refer to me being in a crowded room of people, imagine a you’re at a party at your new job and everyone there already knows each other. You know a few people but they have oher people to talk to and you have a choice: hide or make a name for yourself.
