Why hello there friend!
You want to know about me? And understand me? I'll have to ask your forgiveness since I don't even know that, but I'll do my best. Lets see what you come up with, see if your perception of me is anything like how I perceive myself.
The first thing you ought to know is I have what people call the Cheshire Cat effect, others call it the Glow Worm Symptoms. Don't worry, it's nothing serious. The main symptoms are having a generally upbeat attitude and being able to carry a smile all through the day. It's rather obvious that I have it since I have been told I leave smiles behind me and strangers have t old me that I practically glow with happiness. I hope it's contagious because I feel as if the world can change for the better if more people had the Cheshire Cat Effect or Glow Worm Symptoms.
The second thing you should know is that I wasn't always like that. When I was young I had one of the worst attitudes you can imagine and I refused to smile about anything. I just thought things were radder that way or something. I was home schooled at that point and it eventually got me sent to school, I think it was my social needs acing up because the second I got there I got over it.
It was when I was twelve that I really decided to try and enjoy every single instant I'm alive. It was at eleven forty three in the morning when I learned that the world isn't always a great place, that people hurt others, that even children aren't safe. Although the issue ended within six hours a girl had been killed, the FBI had become involved, the news story was on all over the country and in other countries as well, and I was no longer nearly as naive.
So now I know that I could live to be a hundred or I could never reach nineteen. To some it may be a downer thought but it causes me to try and take advantage of every opportunity I've been given. Recent health issues have even further established t his belief.
The next thing you should know about me is that I'm a mouse that roars. I'm tiny and hard to hear, but I manage to make myself hear and my opinions known. I'm friends with almost every single person in my school and when I have an opinion or something that is bothering I practically have an army to back me up.
Finally one of the most defining things about me is that I'm filled with wanderlust and the reckless carelessness that makes me follow it. There have been times when I've been thousands of miles away from home and caught a bus, meet friends, gone to visit their schools, went to soccer games, and abandoned every warning. And you know what? It's worth it. I feel as if I truly understand the world more than I ever would if I were cautious.
Because of this I'm applying for a program for the next two years in which I would step foot in Australia, Thailand, Romania, Chile, and dozens of other countries but never in the US.
So follow your heart, see the world, and bon voyage!
