Lioness' Literatim

Letter for letter, the thoughts in my head.

I’m a Lioness at heart

Where to start? I always have that problem, not knowing quite where to begin what I’m writing. On introductions especially. I mean, how am I supposed to tell you everything that I want you to know about me AND keep it interesting AND have you understand it all? It’s a rather difficult task. But then, if I just tell you some things, how am I supposed to pick and choose which bits to tell you? I mean, when it comes to who a person is, is any one piece of information really that much less important than another?

Now that you know my dilemma, maybe I can attempt this thing they call an intro post…

I’m twenty years old with one year of college under my belt. I’m pending a divorce – married too early before either one of us knew what we really wanted. I’m going on one year of service in the U.S. Army, and let me tell you – my relationship with my job is very bipolar. One day I love it, the next day I want to shoot the next person that mentions work. Actually, that’s more on a minute-by-minute basis rather than day-by-day…

I’m a bitch at heart, and yet somehow, I manage to keep friends around me…perhaps its my skill at pretending that everything is ok, even when its not. You see, I’m not actually funny, I’m really mean and people just always seem to think I’m joking…works out in my favor I suppose.

I love music. Specifically: Country and Christian. Don’t know what I would do without my music.

I’m insecure about nearly everything: making friends, talking to someone I don’t know (this includes making phone calls as simple as ordering pizza), my appearance (every aspect of it), my attitude towards life, relationships, school, the future, etc. I think you get the point there…

I’m a sucker for romance, cute things, and books.

Books, yeah. Big reader. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t like to read.

My sweet tooth is almost always asking for something, and most of the time that call can be answered with some fresh fruit.

I’m a military brat to the core, so I guess you could say that I’m used to being spoiled, used to getting what I want, and can get pretty pissy when things don’t go my way.

I am easily annoyed, easily distracted, easy to amuse, and difficult to understand.

I’m passionate about nothing, but interested in a lot of things.

At this point in time, I can’t think of anything else to put here, so I will end it there.

Although…looking back over it now, I was right in the beginning. It tells you next to nothing about me. It doesn’t tell you, for instance, that I’m a walking contradiction. It doesn’t tell you that my drink of choice is always tea. Or that I’m a runner, a tournament dart player, or that I hate cameras with a seething passion (but only when they’re pointed at me). It doesn’t tell you that I love to write; anything from stories to essays to poems. You don’t know about my obsession with colors, markers, sticky-notes. And how could you know that I live for the Lord God Almighty? How could you possibly know that I’ve traveled the world or that my favorite color changes from day to day? And if I wasn’t telling you this right now, you would never know that I’m the second youngest out of five children, the youngest girl in the family. And pet peeves! You couldn’t know that I will NOT wear the color yellow, though that’s partially because it looks awful on me, partially because I don’t like the color. You couldn’t know that I hate rap, most techno, and days that end in ‘y’. I don’t like pulp in my orange juice either. I also failed to mention the type of books that I like to read. It’s all good and well for you to know that I like books, but it doesn’t do anyone any good if you don’t know that I love fantasy above all, fiction of nearly any kind as a close second, and anything boring at dead last. You also wouldn’t know that I’m destined to be a crazy cat lady later in life, or that I currently house a strange kitten named Kiwi.  All these things that I didn’t mention before, and I can still think of things that I would put in here, just for you to get a better understanding of who I am, but I don’t really feel like typing much anymore. Just know this: though you’ve read my entry post thus far, you still know very little about me. What you do not know by now may, perhaps, make itself evident in upcoming entries. Until then, this is me. Or at least a little of me.
