    My mom always told me life is an obstacle

    course. You have to jump over all the hurdles of hate people are gonna throw at you. I wish I would've listened to her early on. I was always different. I didn't like the normal type of music kids my age listened to. I wore different clothing. The biggest challenge was being the...

    Love Me Or Hate Me I Leave A Lasting Impression

    I am true to who and what I am. I am open and blunt and make no apologies for how I come across to others or their perception of me. I do not adhere to conventional wisdoms. You gotta look beyond the blonde hair or you miss a good time to be had by all!

    I Am Who I Am

    Sure there was some fear when I had sex with another girl but now I'm confident in who I am and what I am. I am not afraid to have this relationship and it's very fulfilling for me.

    I'm crazy and I accept my weirdness.

    I choose the friends that choose to walk in the streets with me because they know how crazy I am. I love being weird😜😂
