I fell a bit behind because of work but let’s continue the challenge.
Write about something that annoys you.
I am a girl.
I shoot hoops and play baseball, I lift weights and am studying to be a personal trainer. I like sports, sew me for that. I like to be physical. I’ll challenge you to a one on one game and tell you I’ll beat you at arm wrestling. I like playing video games and watching animes. My perfect date would probably involve a picnic at the beach and then some sports. I rather go rock climbing than watch a love movie, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I’d pick zip lining over a fancy dinner any day; that doesn’t mean I never want to go out to eat. I don’t feel a need to wear extra short clothes or wear makeup every day. I don’t wear flower print dresses every waking moment, I like to wear Converse, Vans, jeans, Jordan’s, polos and just plain t-shirts. I love cars and driving fast, I talk bad when I get mad and let’s be honest even when I’m not mad. I listen to rock, rap, r & b, country and any song from any genre, as long as I like it. I’m not perfect, but I’m me. I don’t need help from things I can buy at a store to be pretty, because God made me beautiful. I’m not preppy and don’t focus 100 percent on my appearance, so people say for all these things I’m queer or gay. Because being a girl somehow is related to how I dress, what I like or being fragile. I am strong, I like sports and I still like heels, skirts, and dresses. I flip off society’s standards on what I should be, how I should act and what I should like. I’m not a tomboy just because I’m not self-centered and actually have something in my brain. Because I rather read a book or watch a show than go buy makeup or shop for clothes. I’m still a hopeless romantic and like to be told I’m beautiful. The things I like do not define the gender I like. I’ll be the way I am and still marry a great guy. I won’t seduce him with my hair twirls, mascara bold eyes or excessive laughter to his lame ass jokes. I’ll be me and he’ll love me for how I am. I’ll wear my heels to our wedding and throw on some sneakers after our honeymoon. Because society can’t tell me what or how I should be…At the end of the day no matter what I like…
I am a woman.
