Rediscovering My Inner Tomboy
During my childhood i was that girl , who would wear tshirts and long pants and shorts , tennies shoes instead of more girly cutie items . Me and my best friend always got down to play on the dirt , climb to trees , and hang out with the boys in our classroom , since in cuba you hang out with the same people during your whole school life we were all pretty used to each other .
During recess , i loved running like a crazy betch on drugs , going after the boys in a game we called "catch the girl" for boys to catch us girls and "catch the boys " for us girls to catch them . It was during those times i realized i ran faster than everyone else , maybe cause i have longs legs and i was pretty thin back then.
I joined the school team for sprint running (is that how its said in english?)
and kept on trying different sports like gymnastics , but when i hit 12 years and puberty started to make my hips wider and I COULDNT BELIEVE I HAD started to LOOSE MY RUNNING SPEED , i was slooooow compared to everyone else and thats when i quitted .
and i started to become more girly and preppy with a twist of ordinary weirdness . I joined other kind of clubs , like painting , art , a sewing class and so my closet began filling with more revealing items , skirts low cut shirts , high heels ..and boyss.
As time went by , i realized i wasnt meant to be for all that "get cute " and then" get attention" trouble.
I got several twisted ankles thanks to my running routines and it was difficult to walk with high heels so i left them behind and came back to flat shoes or better yet tennis shoes .
These last weeks i have been watching my closet from a tomboy perspective and hating what im seeing cause i have gotten to the point where i know myself better than before and im feeling comfortable on my own skin to drop all this ridiculous revealing clothes , dresses and tightness
I have been feeling more free with more loose clothing
.I have been walking around without turning every male and sometimes female heads to check me out .
i walk properly again without my right ankle failing me .
and i definitly feel like joining a new sport .
and it feels awesome enough to rediscover my childhood tomboy and do some new shopping !
