    Crying Stars

    Not long ago I was a happy kid, fifteen and hanging around Alysa, which literally translates as noble or knight, who was tough, aggressive, impulsive, could be seen in anything other than a dress or skirt, and loved dirt-biking and ATV rides may she rest in peace. But I guess...

    So What If I'M A Tomboy.

    So what if I'm a tomboy. I was never interested in girl things. It was just too boring. My friend that I played with all he time was a boy. I liked climbing trees, playing with cars and riding my bike. Even playing with toy guns and knives. I don't fuse if I chip a nail or scream...

    I really don't know if it's my lack of self

    confidence or because I was jealous of the attention my brother got from my dad but I ended up a tomboy. I feel like dressing up in frills and putting make up on on a daily basis doesn't work for me. I don't care if other people do that to feel good, like, more power to you for...

    I Am, I Am Not.

    I am a girl. I am not trying to disguise it, I do not want to be a boy. I just don't want to hide my face with tons of makeup. I feel like I am beautiful the way I am, I don't need push-up bras or a nose job or bronzer. No, I am not wearing a skirt. I don't want to challenge the...

    As a child, I wasn't completely unusual.

    I played with dolls, and had tea parties, and liked dresses. But that wasn't the only thing I loved doing. Even more than dolls, tea parties, and dresses, I loved to wrestle, play sports, climb trees, go on "quests" and become the "hero", sword fight, and watch action movies...

    Stop Pushing It

    I hated growing up around girls, I never saw myself as one of them. They would giggle and be straight up b*****s to everyone around them, I just wanted to be goofy and comfortable. They would always tease me because I dressed like a boy (I was seriously out of "funds" so I...

    I have no filter. I will talk about anything

    and everything. I will burp in front of everyone. I like to "Dutch oven" my husband and play candy crush while I'm on the toilet. I have fixing my hair, putting on makeup and I do NOT get my nails done. I love it this way.

    Tomboy lives are awesome.

    I can like boys but still be myself. I really don't care what people say. People can do what they wanna do. What I look forward to during summer is fishing with the new spinner I bought. I also love to hunt and eat fried frog legs. Can't forget about the alligator though. I like...

    Always Have Been, Always Will Be

    I am not going to change. It doesn't matter how old I get, or that Im a mother, I will always have my tomboy tendencies. It's just me. The thought of changing my ways is overwhelming. Although I probably have toned down some, I am still and will always be a tomboy. :)

    I was always a tomboy from the days I can remember. A tomboy is just female who enjoys what society generally says she is not entitled to. (Sport, pants, top position, science etc). It is society that has placed a heavy boundary on how the sexes should act and look like. The...
