I am…

Below you will find a long overdue homework assignment from the fabulous Kelli Owen.

Enjoy, and while you’re at it, why not do one of your own?

I AM…

I am loyal, sometimes to my own detriment. I am an adventurous eater. I am an avid lover of sushi, flan, watermelon, sharpies, cream cheese frosting, and the color blue. I am an odd girl who likes to sing dorky songs into makeshift microphones (hairbrushes, wooden spoons, etc) when no one’s around. I am a writer. I am creative. I am hopeful. I am honest. I am hard working. I am passionate. I am a second generation American. I am a sister. I am a daughter. I am a friend. I am a coworker. I am a tweep. I am fan of many various things, odd and sundry. I am a crafty individual who loves taking on new projects and making things for other people. I am intelligent. I am patient. I am lost in my own head sometimes. I am sensitive. I am shy, though I try to hide it.
I am going to have many more things published. I am going to have a novel with my name on it someday. I am a dreamer. I am an empath. I am sometimes lonely. I am protective of the people I care about. I am a decent baker and an even better cook. I am an artist. I am a strange person. I am a singer. I am a painter. I am a sculptor, even if my medium is silly putty, play-doh, or gum (eeeewe!). I am an attention whore, despite being shy. I am usually the first to volunteer when someone asks for assistance. I am strong, even when I don’t want to be. I am the eldest of 4, though I have very little contact with my siblings. I am a former military brat, wannabe actress, cheerleader, and pageant girl.
I am prone to long stretches of listening to the same music for weeks at a time. I am an avid reader. I am a registered voter. I am a licensed driver. I am a phoenix, risen from the ashes of a burned down life not once, not twice, but three times. I am a hopeless romantic. I am a big fan of love letters. I am trusting and maybe a little naive. I am a sucker for compliments, especially if they are sincere. I am a horrible liar. I am almost completely unable to hide my emotions, especially from those I care about. I am vulnerable. I am a little out of shape. I am courageous. I am trying to be more polite and courteous. I am open minded. I am naturally blonde.
I am caring. I am devoted. I am a good friend. I am good at origami. I am accident prone. I am not easily frightened. I am creeped out by giraffes, oilskin, and canada geese. I am an animal lover, especially dogs, birds, and crustaceans. I am thoughtful. I am observant, though my perception is very, very low at times. I am incredibly fond of almond flavored things, cherries, and fresh fruit. I am a big kid who likes to play with legos, draw pictures of silly things, and dress up. I am a big zombie fan. I am really pleased with my makeup skills, though I have no intentions of stopping where I am or giving up on learning new techniques. I am industrious. I am a jury rigger. I am ½ english, ½ russian, and all bad ass.
I am proud of myself. I am a published author. I am a survivor. I am capable, bold, brave, and determined. I am unable to spell the word “piece” without remembering “Piece of Pie”. I am also unable to tell left from right without doing the little L thing with my fingers. I am a harsh critic, though I try not to be mean spirited or cruel. I am a computer nerd. I am blue eyed, though there is a tiny copper ring around my irises due to a blood condition. I am capable of great things. I am able to cut myself, by accident, with things one would normally consider safe (tupperware, chopstics, pudding cups). I am thankful for the wonderful friends I have, all of the positive experiences I have shared with them, and the gifts and surprises the future will bring me.
I am also done with this entry.
