    I Am A Real Man!

    I am what I am, and man am I a Man. From the growl that grumbles deep inside my quiet soul...to the gentleness used to tackle fearsome indignities...stepping forward to meet any challenge is my instinct... I'm not here to condemn the weak, or insult the delicate... Win, Lose or...

    I am me. And I like me.

    I'm not saying I've settled at 'this is all I am' or 'this is as good as it gets'; I hope to learn more, accomplish more, become more. But who I am makes me happy, and any 'more' that I ever become will be built upon who I already am. I'm not perfect, but I'm perfectly me...

    Meh.

    I am ugly. I am fat. I am a geek and I am awesome!   It's amazing how many people out there want to tear you down because you don't fit their precious mold. I think it frightens them that others aren't chasing their own tails to achieve the rigid conformity that defines their...

    No Apologies.

    I am who I am, and I would rather die than be otherwise. Either take me as I am, or leave well enough alone. I don't have time to conform to other people's expectations of me, and I honestly don't care what other people think I should be like, or think of me. I would rather...

    I've always been quirky

    and funny in a different way. Sometimes I'd feel like such an outsider but sometimes people would really enjoy how crazy I am. I have a different outlook, am super sarcastic, and love to be creative. The older I get the more I appreciate my differences.

    I will never apologize for the person that I am. The sarcastic, witty, opinionated intelligent , and passionate (about life) person that I am is something I am VERY proud of. And I will never change that unless I want to. Like me or hate me, I am who I am.
