I seem to have found myself without looking too hard. I've been told that my most intimidating quality is how comfortable and sure I am when it comes to my identity. Honestly, that seems like a compliment. One thing that I will never do is pretend to be any less confident to please others. I've had my fair share of crippling doubt and an insecurity or two will creep in during my lower moments. But I feel as though this outfit embodies the confident personality that people know me for.
These pictures were actually taken on a day where I pushed the limits of how people react to my open communication policy. It's hard to commit to always being honest and not sugar coating a situation, but it is one of the most rewarding experiences. Sometimes being so blunt is a high risk situation, but when the reward is bringing you closer to those around you, it is worth the chance.
This past week was a high amount of fun in a little amount of time. Each and every day on campus seems to match up to how great the last one was. I can't wait to share more of my experiences in the upcoming posts!
