"We are all the same people, with sinning hearts that make us equal"
I'm not afraid to admit that at first glance, I am pretty boring.
Dull. Unexciting. You name it.
I'm fairly certain you're right; I'm not one with looks or style that call for anything more.
After all, I'm pretty plain for a site like this-- It's filled to the brim with all kinds of colorful, beautiful people.
I prefer the comforts of simple clothing, minimal makeup if I do wear any at all and more often than not, my hair is pulled back into a messy ponytail.
But I'm inclined to believe that I am much more than my first impression.
The friendships I've formed and the people I've met are proof enough.
My name is Claire.
22 going on 52.
Although I'm generally laid-back, silly and fun-loving, I'm also a rather serious person. I reserve that gravity for close friends.
I am totally "one of the boys"-- always have been. I think it's my sense of humor, but for whatever reason, guys and I have always gotten along well. Girls are complicated anyway.
I'm more interested in personal growth and development over trivial emotions.
I have a convoluted past-- no time to explain. All you need to know is that it's shaped who I am and it was for the best. I am a much stronger and more mature person because of it.
I try to live life without regrets: every experience is an opportunity, regardless of whether it was good or bad. It's simply a matter of perspective.
I like dabbling; I'm probably mediocre at best at a lot of things I partake in, but I enjoy the variety. Perhaps one day I'll get around to pursuing certain hobbies more in depth.
I consider myself a rather artsy person; a lot of my interests are in creative expression. I enjoy drawing, painting, writing and anything that involves using my hands.
I'm actually an extremely complex person regardless of my love for simplicity. I struggle with duality and equilibrium every day.
I am a Thinker and would love nothing more than to sit and observe the world and its people and philosophize.
I do, however, think too much. My mouth or hands often can't keep up with the swirl of thoughts that swell in my mind daily. I sometimes don't make sense because I expect you to follow what I feel is implied but may not come across as obvious to you.
Time is my worst enemy. I'm a fantastic procrastinator.
I am a private person; although open and friendly, I keep a lot of things to myself unless I feel a connection with someone.
There's probably a lot more I could say to try and explain who I am but honestly, who wants to be hit with a huge wall of text? My profile is long enough.
I can guarantee this:
I am not who you think I am.
Most first impressions of me have been wrong. I encourage you to try again.
We all choose how to project our individuality to the world; this, is the way I've chosen to present myself.
Perhaps the simple look is there to disarm you; after all, I do dislike expectations. Or maybe I'm just another quirky pseudo-intellect looking for validation.
You're just going to have to find out.
