Toddler's and Tiaras is on tv and it is making me queasy. These Moms are beyond bizarre. Spending their days obsessing over frilly miniature sized pageant gowns, while forcing their seven year olds (or younger) to get a spray tan and go through traumatic eyebrow waxing. Perhaps I cannot fathom these rituals because I did not get eyebrows until I was eighteen years old, but that is beside the point, people. When I was seven years old the most important things on my mind were which matching outfit Julia and I would wear to school the next day, if I wanted Shreddies or Cheerios for breakfast, and how I was going to convince Peter to let me stay outside for seven consecutive hours instead of five. Ohhhh the simple life. Perhaps I find these tiara clad seven year olds so creepy because I have never had the desire to be anything like this. I've never had the desire to be grouped into any category. People work so hard to classify themselves as this or that, a Jackie or a Marilyn, if you were to ask me which I am I would tell you to take your label and... you know. I am neither; I have developed my own style. Sometimes I wear head to toe J-Crew, and the next day I might not wear pants with vans and a fedora. Does this mean I don't know who I am? Nooooo! Quite the contrary really, I know exactly who I am and I am sooo content with that person. Instead of working towards morphing myself into a specific category, I have a desire to fill my mind with new things. I want to be spontaneous and smart. I want to exist in this world as a person who is strong, who knows what she wants; is determined and is content with her weaknesses. I will be poised and classy, but you better believe I have an opinion. I eat a quarter of a cup of wheat, rye, and flax mixed with three quarters of a cup of water for breakfast every morning at eight o'clock, but sometimes I sleep until 11:17 and eat fruit snacks instead. This makes me grin and feel accomplished. Does that sound bizarre? I hope so. I am not going to submit to one specific path, not today or ever. Sure I have set beliefs, my world would be complete mayhem if I did not, but I take those beliefs and run with it. At times I am impulsive, but I'm no flake.
I'm Spring. Just Spring. I like to write and I like to take photos. I quite enjoy life and adventure. I appreciate people and their quirks, aaaaaand I am weird. I combined all of that and now we have this.
