    I don't have any tattoos

    or piercings, so you'll have to settle for my love handles as proof of my bold and dangerous life choices.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a sweetheart

    and I'd never cause any harm to anyone without good reason, but I think my favourite thing in the world is the look on people's faces when they realise I won't take any ****. Once in a nightclub this guy was dancing with me, and he seemed harmless so I was fine with it, until...

    I Look Cute But I'M Fierce!!!!

    Today, someone tried to tell me

    that I was not going to be successful... and I listened to what the person had to say, but in the end I decided that my fate isn't determined by just one person. it is determined by me, my reactions/actions, my attitude, and my desires. I will ultimately fail or win on my own...

    Aww....I am all girl

    but when push comes down to shove I can steel myself to do absolutely anything that I feel needs to be done. Nobody ever guesses until the time comes though. They all think I am just a sweet little thing.

    I am tiny. 4'11" 78 lb 14 yr old.

    You see what I mean? Of course, people see my bony frame and small size and assume I can't throw a punch or lift a crate. I am a drummer, people. I lift my entire floor tom and cymbals to reposition them DAILY. In the school band, all the other percussionists ditch early and...

    My best friends call me freakishly strong.

    I'm petite and young looking. So I tend to surprise others when I can lift things most women refuse to try. I used to work in retail and lifting heavy things was common. Often I'd have old women be the one to assume more than anyone I needed a Man for help when most of the time...

    I hate that just because I'm tiny everyone

    thinks I'm not tough. Like I told someone if they touch me I'll knock them down and everyone laughed just because of my size. And the kindness and sweetness everyone thinks I am, is an act. I can be a true cold hearted ***** when I choose to be

    The crappy thing about breaking up with anyone,

    but especially someone verbally and emotionally abusive- is dealing with the feelings of heart break... Not for the loss of the relationship; I stand by the fact that I made a really great decision to get out... But the questions I'm faced with now... How did I get wrapped up...

    I'm a small frame female.

    I hate when strangers say I need to eat a burger. First of all you don't even know me, just because I'm super small and the biggest size I wear is 4 doesn't mean I don't eat. Doesn't mean I don't work out. Doesn't mean I can't lift almost 200 pounds with my legs. Doesn't mean I...

    because after every thing that goes wrong or has went wrong; I can still pick myself up and say I love me. I like to think that makes me strong. I may not be able to beat someone twice my size into the dirt. I may not even be able to stand against most people my size, But I can...

    I look weak, I act weak,

    but I know how to fight, I know I am strong, I have many ways to win a fight, so don't let my fragile looking figure fool you, I'm not afraid to fight back. All the guys I meet think that I am a little weakling, well until they see me hold my own in a fight.

    kilos but I'm pretty tough! I can get up, dust myself off and get on with life. I'm not defined by any one thing that happens to me! I'm a survivor!
