It's about time I finally updated this thing! I mean, geez, how long has it been?
This is the part where I tell who, exactly, I am. Which is fine and dandy and all, but sometimes I'm not sure I know myself. You see...I'm never the same way for the same amount of time. In other words, I like change. Lots of change.
The one thing I can give you is the basics. The name's Hayley Freeman. I'm a seventeen-year-old Texan, and darn proud of it. That, and I'm a shorty. People are like "GOSH, Hayley, you're TINY". And I'm like, "Darn tootin' I am". I'm only about 5'2, which leaves me to be mistaken as younger than I truly am. Seriously, I still get offered kids menus at restaurants. It doesn't help much, either, that my short body comes complete with a roundish child-looking face. This guy in my Religion class called it "cherubic" once. My face, I mean.
It's hard for people to recognize me because I, as I mentioned earlier, change a lot. I have no idea why. It's not that I'm unhappy with myself. No, in fact, I love myself. Not in that Narcissistic way or anything. I'm just a generally happy person. I'll get to that later.
I change almost daily. My mood stays the same (happy), but I always look different. Somedays I wear my dark-rimmed glasses. Somedays I wear my contacts. I might part my hair differently, I might flip the ends of my blonde hair out, or I might just leave it straight.I might wear makeup, or I might gloss and go. Depends on the day.
Notice how I say it doesn't depend on my mood. That's because I only have one mood. Happy. This is made apparent by the fact that I can never seem to stop smiling. People have different reactions to this characteristic. Some people love me for it, others hate me for it, some depend on my smile, while others are just plain confused.
They ask me, "Hayley, why do you smile so much?"
And I answer with my trademark grin, "What's there not to smile about?"
That gets them to thinking, and they leave me alone about it.
Truth is, it takes more energy to hate the world than it does to just accept the cards you're dealt with a smile on your lips and a song in your heart. Why fight it when you can just take it and turn the situation into a good one?
Here are some of my current projects:
Flashlight: This is a tag-team with my gorgeous "mate" from Aussie-land, Lolly (aka Lollilicious).Its under her name, and in the Mediator section. Totally proud of our little Flashy-poo.
Magdalena: So I haven't really updated this one in awhile, but I'm just re-working out everything in my head. A few sprouts of inspiration came from the recent Junior Unity Day Mass and a band trip to Colorado (which was a MESS I tell you). Keep on the watch...
Tennis: Another tag-team with Lollykins! She's just the greatest tag-teamer. So creative and spirited...and so adorable. It is, again, under her name, so check it out sometime. The format is kind of different...something she and Gen. Kenobi came up with. It's like a role-play from both Suze's and Paul's perspectives. I get to be Paulie in this one...HEHE!
Love ya'll lotses,
