Why I Am Overwhelmed and the Essential Me

Okay I lied. Two posts will be necessary today…

I’ve been pondering why I’ve become more aware of my awkwardness, and more upset by it. The only thing I can think of is that it is because I am still rebuilding from first semester. I mean, I’ve never cared about my appearance or awkwardness before–in fact, I took pride in being “weird” and “nerdy”. I think that that weirdness and nerdiness are essential parts of who I am–or better, who I want to be. So having had everything shaken up I’ve become uncertain of which parts are me. To the end of helping me rebuild I’ll move on to the Essential Me section of this post

Essential Me (essential parts of who I am)

Caring
Honest
Kind
Weird/Nerd
Stubborn
Determined
Self-controlled
Modest
Assertive

I think that with these attributes I can build the kind of person I want to be and stay on the right path.
