I am a firm believer in being real. Sometimes on blogs I think we forget that. We forget to be real and then people get this image that we have this perfect life. This is far from the truth. I've had many conversations with friends and my sister about being real. Its important. I cannot tell you any better than that.
This started out as a journal entry and turned into a post. So this is me, being real, with you. As well as another piece of who I am.
My room is rarely clean. I have piles of papers and notes everywhere. CD's and books shoved on shelves is a chaotic order. I do not dress in the most stylish fashion. You can find me in jeans and a t-shirt on most days, hair in a messy bun with wisps hanging out every which way. My makeup is simple. I don't wash my face everyday.
My diet isn't sugar free, gluten free or vegetarian. I like my desserts, meat and bread. I don't work out everyday and when I do, it's a battle with myself to get to it.
I'm not the best drawer, writer, blogger or photographer. I've gone a week with out touching my camera. I have thousand of unedited photos. I'd rather be behind the camera than in front of it. My blog has suffered from neglect in past years. I often struggle with putting words together to form a paragraph.
I listen to more music and watch more movies then maybe one person ought to. I laugh easily. I bust into song often. I have to many stories to tell and I talk with my hands. I don't do a lot of texting. I'd rather talk face to face then over the phone. I'd take a cup of coffee over a bottle of pop. I don't really like soda. I tend to ramble. I procrastinate. all. the. time.
I tend to get stressed and go crazy.
I don't read as much as I would like to. Math is not my strongest subject. I'm a terrible test taker. Sometimes, I forget about my morning "God time". I'm not always happy - despite what people think. I'd rather be on twitter than facebook. Four times out of five I'll choose to listen to music that is deemed "non-christian" and sometimes that music has a more meaning that any christian song.
I stay up to late and get up to early. I watch to much crime shows, comedies and food network. I hate hot weather. I love cloudy days. Autumn is my favorite season.
I spend to much time on the internet and not enough time hanging out with my siblings.
I don't journal everyday, sometimes its a month before I pick my journal up again. I'm not crafty and probably never will be. I like weird things, such as the beatles and graffiti.
I don't like shopping for clothes. I own about three pairs of shoes, because lets face it- I dislike those too.
I write down to many quotes. I say things like "yo" and "dude" in the same sentence. I sometimes take to long to answer emails. I'm even worse at answering letters.
My blog may not be the most popular or exciting. But I love sharing stories from my journey as a person. I am just me, Marissa, and thats who you will find on this blog.
p.s. --- Great minds think alike. Hannah over at Aspire, a dear friend of mine, just did a post about the messes of life, go read it. I love seeing other bloggers being real.
