Response to comment

All of my life, the only thing I've ever wanted to be or to have was to be myself, complete and open. When I was in kindergaten the class made a "Wish Book." Each person made a picture of the thing they wanted. Most of the girls said " I want to be a princess," and drew a picture of a princess. The boys wanted wagons and drew pictures of wagons. I sat there perplexed and my teacher told me to put down the thing I wanted most in the world. I told her, "I just want to be myself." And so that's what I drew.

All I've ever done was be honest with myself and the masses. Most people don't like me or just don't know how to take me. But I could care less. I show the world my face. I am the same with all people, because if someone knows me for something I'm not, then I'm just a liar. And in my opinion, that's the worst thing of all to be.

Kelly,
I think being open is the best way to be, if something is bothering you, tell people about it. They will like you more for being honest, that is how I am, I tell people how it is. If they don't like it they will back off, if they are taken-aback they think about it, and realize I am right and it is for the best that I told them.....ohh and by the way

OPENNESS ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

Kelly, let me just tell you that I'm totally floored and impressed by your response. That truly shows me (and apparently everyone else in the class) that you're totally you...and that rules. I just hope I didn't ruffle any feathers by my comment before...you're awesome.

Kelly, I look forward to what you'll do with "Self Reliance" (is that what you chose? If not, that's fine...)
