    THE Magic's In the Makeup-who Am I?

    The name of this group makes me think of the song by No Doubt. I've been thinking about who I really am alot lately. I have recently um... how do I describe it? Let me start from the beginning: When I was younger, I vowed not to become a home owning, picket fence, two dogs in...

    Think About It.

     Just when you think you know, something changes and your search for you starts all over again.   I can't count how many times I have had to look deeper, and  wonder who I am really.

    Who Am I?

    Sometimes I really wonder who I am. When you're doing scholarships, It really got you thinking... when it asks you "who are you?" And I'm like "err, who am i?" It makes you have to think for a second who you really are. I know I'm a sweet kind...

    Refined Destination

    I think some people never really know who they are--or their potential to become more. You have heard me say it before--I think we are put here in this world with a purpose.  We are born with an instinct. We have a brain and learn to read, write and communicate. We have...

    Confusion

    When I was very young, back in primary school, I didn't think I was anybody in particular. I was the awkward, clumsy child and my love for books and my secondhand clothes made me an easy target for bullying. Being a child, I wasn't fully aware of what individuality means, but...

    I Believe In Some Ways...........

    ~ We probably never do. It's a lifelong journey that changes you as you go through it. I do believe that there is a "core" you, the things deep inside that never truly change. I believe that you can know that "core" well, but there are always little fluffs of...

    Always A Mystery

     I don't think we ever really know who we are because we are constantly changing. We think we know one thing but something enters your life like a person and everything is different.

    One of the Purposes of Life?

    I think this may be one of the purposes of life - self-discovery. Who are we really? What are we here to do? Why are we here? Self-discovery seems like a continuous life-long process. We can always discover a little bit or aspect of ourselves that we previously did not consider...

    Who Am I?

    Don't have a God damn clue.  I've changed so drastically over the past 7 years from highschool to starting college, and I think a lot of my family are wondering what happened to me in a lot of cases.  I'm just thinking about the things that I never did that most do...
