    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The Enternal Quest For Me

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Really

    I don't think we do. I mean.. I never thought I would drink. I never thought I would do the sorts of things I have to my friends and those I've loved. I wish I didn't do them but its too late for that. I'm trying to improve myself in little ways and trying to...

    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...

    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.
