I’m one of those people you might have a tough time figuring out. I feel that I give off some different vibes, confusing people around me, and sometimes, myself. You might look at me and think, “She looks quite timid”. However, another person might think that I’m “Loud and talkative”. Although I haven’t exactly figured out who I am, these things seem to make sense. Based on who I’m with or how I’m feeling, my personality tends to drift out, sometimes giving people the wrong idea of who I really am. After all, I am just a 12, going on 13 year-old girl, trying to figure everything out.
I sit on my school bus every morning on school days, with my headphones on, music in my ears. Music is a big part of me, and it helps me express myself. It immediately amplifies my mood, and always seems to help. I love singing along to the lyrics, and just listening to how the beat works together perfectly with the words. I love how it all comes together to make a fantastic song. I listen to multiple artists, usually bands, however I do enjoy a couple of solo artists. I love reading through song lyrics, simply reading them as if reading a story. They tell about different things, from different points of view. I never seem to get tired of listening to music, and let’s just say I get pretty ecstatic when my favorite artist releases a new song… Also, I’m learning how to play guitar, which should work well with my fondness of music.
My friends are definitely a big part of my life. They’re the ones that really know me, not just people that label me before really getting to know me. They never seem to fail at making me smile, and I know that they’re always there when I need them. It’s amazing to have people that care and will try their hardest to make you feel better about something. Although we have arguments, we always end up learning something in the end. I guess you can say my friends are also helping me find who I am. They help me discover new parts of me I never knew existed, which I think is pretty amazing. I’m always discovering new things about myself when I’m with them. New skills, new talents, and they introduce me to a lot of new things. Just simply talking to them for a few minutes makes me really content, I love sharing inside jokes with them, and laughing together while everyone else is wondering what could possibly be so funny. I love them all so much, and I’m proud to call them my best friends.
It will probably take me hours and hours to finish homework… I’m a huge procrastinator. Even when I know I have important things to do, I still procrastinate. It’s something that I really need to work on. I’ll find anything to distract myself, I’ll read a book, I’ll play with my hair, I’ll even stare at the ceiling! I waste hours doing nothing, and I always regret it later on. I’m sure loads of people have this problem, and I know it’s hard to stop. It’s not just with important things like homework or studying, it’s for little things too. For example, if my mom tells me to make my bed or put something away, I’ll just walk around the house and find something else to do. Procrastination is basically ruining my life…well, not really. It just makes things a lot harder and I have to deal with doing everything last minute, which isn’t so pleasant…
