I Am a Tomboy

    I'm not like most girls.

    I don't need to have my makeup and hair done every day. I don't spend a ridiculous amount of money on manicures or pedicures. I don't make my family buy me designer clothing. I rather the simple things than the expensive ones.

    I haven't always been a tomboy.

    When I was little, I admit, I wore a lot of dresses, played with barbies, but that all changed when I had a younger brother. As he grew up, I left my toys to play with him, to run, jump, playing with mud. Since I never had a sister or girl cousins, I began to play with my boy...

    Why buy clothes that limit my ability to move?

    High heels, pencil skirts...I'd sell them to buy a football. They're healthier and more fun.

    I guess growing up with two brothers was a big influence and the fact my dad got us all into riding motobikes. The only time I wore girly clothes was when I didn't really have a say in what I wore which was pretty young. As my hobbies were playing football and riding motobikes I...

    That takes some serious effort that I'm not willing to put forth. I grew up with an older brother who had a lot of influence on me. I found myself copying his actions or the nuances in his speech. I would always want to hang out with his male friends when I was a toddler. I...

    Sometimes I am girly other times I am a tomboy.

    Being girly is too uncomfortable. Being a tomboy is the most comfortable thing because I can dress my way and do things I like even if I get dirty. I love sports and hanging with boys. Tomboy is life.
