alright....so this may turn out to be a random aimless blog post...but I ask that you bear with me.
I havent been posting on this frequently because to be truthful Im a little intimidated- what if no one reads it...what if im not witty enough - blah blah- and the other insecurities that go along with 'baring your soul to the world'.
But i think the freer ( is this a word? free-er? :S) I am with it the more relaxed Ill be. ..so here goes
People have been labelling me a girly-girl for as long as I can remember and though I accept that I am very feminine- despite having grown up with two brothers and all male cousins in the island - and when you have two brothers it always means youll have twice as many of their male friends around as I could possibly have my female friends.
I mean, yes I do engage in 'boyish' stuff- im into video games and i looooorve football/soccer. I can climb trees, fix pipes, know my way around a car's engine, play basketball, tackle someone, love to wrestle.....
BUT how in the world are people supposed to know this on a day-to-day basis? What, are you expecting me to do? tackle you for no random reason? Invite you outside to take a look at my car? Its more socially acceptable and polite for me to do things like cross my legs when I wear a skirt- or take time to comb my hair and make sure my outfit looks decent. I dont think I need to deny myself of acceptable presentation to prove to others that i have more layers than that of a girly-girl. Really now. plus...white v neck tees and baggy cargo pants just isnt my style -i need more variety and funk in my outfit than that
