It sounds like a simple question, but with some thought into it, it can actually be pretty complex. I decided to write my next blog post on this so my readers can know a little more about me. I did some brainstorming about this question for a week to think about Who I Am, and I came up with a lot of answers. There are many different ‘labels’ that describe me as a person. So let’s get started.
Sister / daughter
One of the more easier answers. I’m a valued member of the family. I help and support others in need when in need. I make positive influences on them. I’m a very fun person to be around, and serious when I need to be. I am the sister of one brother who is about six years younger than me. Therefore, I am also an excellent role model to him as well.
I would say student, but I’m not going to stay a student forever. But I’m always learning, even when I’m 50 years old. I love learning new things, despite how hard it may be. Sometimes determination and effort is lacking, but I try my best.
This one should be pretty obvious. I love doing YouTube. It is fun, and I love knowing that there is chance of helping others be happy. There are many YouTubers that I watch who constantly make me happy when I’m down, and I’m glad I can do the same for others as well.
Of course, being a YouTuber also means I’m a gamer (not saying that all YouTubers are gamers). But ever since I was young, I loved playing games. Some people were surprised to find out that a girl played video games, but later that stereotype kind of dissolved as we all grew older. By playing games, it helps me just get away from the world. If I’m tired, stressed, or upset, games always helps to cheer me up. Sometimes I can get a little addicted, but once I stop, it’s time to re-evaluate and put things into perspective to fix that.
I’m not a specialist or an expert or anything. It’s just that I do play piano and flute. Music was never really my strongest talents. I wouldn’t say that I’m tone deaf, but I kind of have a hard time figuring out notes. That’s why I could never really play music all that well (like beginner level). But I still really enjoy it. I most certainly enjoy listening to music, even if I don’t necessarily do so so often. I don’t listen to music for fun though. For me, music is another outlet that helps me when I’m unhappy or stressed. It helps me relax. I listen to music that means a lot to me. For example, some of the songs that I listen to are from Sean’s channel: All the Way, the remix of All the Way, What is my life (my favourite), and Dude’s a Beast.
Apart from a musician, I would also call myself an artist. I always liked art better than music anyway. I wouldn’t say I’m the best at art, but art takes a lot time, which I don’t really have. Playing games takes up that time so I haven’t had too much time to practice. I know you can do art online and everything too, but I always liked doing it the old fasioned way, with pencil and paper. I mostly draw fanart for Sean (Jacksepticeye) and Mark (Markiplier).
Along with being a YouTuber, I am also a vlogger. On my YouTube channel, I never want it to be just games. Occasionally, I like showing little clips of my life outside of games. Though, I haven’t done one in a while, I might do one sometime very soon. Stay tuned here. But the thing with vlogs is I need to have something to show you. So feel free to leave a comment about something I should vlog about.
Just like being a musician, I wouldn’t say I’m the best chef. I’m starting to really enjoy cooking, even if I don’t do it all the time. But if someone says they like the meal I made, I always say it’s just because I’m using food they like. It’s never me using some little trick or whatever. 😄
I always love running, especially in nature. I love the freedom it brings you. It takes me away from anything that is bothering me. I’m not the best runner (I may run slower than most people), but I’ll get better, in time. Though, you really have to have a motivation to go for a run how ever many times you want. Whether it’s because you absolutely love it, or because you really want to lose weight, or if it’s because of a person. My motivation to run happens to be from Malcolm McLoughlin, also known as Sean/Jack’s older brother. I don’t know why, but ever since I read his book The Second Lap, it made me want to go for runs everyday. It inspired me.
I am also a big reader. I love reading books, specifically genres such as science fiction, or fiction in general, and I’m also picking up horror books as another genre. The first horror book I’ve ever read was by Andrew Pyper, called The Only Child. It was pretty scary, nerve-wracking, and suspense building. I would absolutely recommend it. I just didn’t enjoy the ending too much because it just didn’t seem like the best possible ending you could’ve had. Though, from a horror standpoint, I suppose it was alright.
I also really enjoy inspirational books. Some include: The Second Lap by Malcolm McLoughlin and Minimalism by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus.
Aside from reading, I’m also picking up writing as another one of my hobbies; freewriting. I enjoy writing about whatever I want. Sometimes it’s about personal stuff, YouTube, brainstoming for a blog post, or writing fiction or non-fiction. In fact, now that I think about it, perhaps I can write a novel in the future. That would be awesome! I don’t know what it would be about or if I will even do it, but it would definitely be a cool idea for the future, don’t you think? I recommend you guys to try it as well. It can be therapeutic as well. One time, I had an intense headache, so I just started freewriting about random stuff (I can’t remember what exactly, I just know it was very random), and my headache went away. I find that pretty cool if you ask me.
A Female Athlete
I love playing tennis and golf, not competitively but just for fun. I’ve played a few tennis games during high school, as well as a couple golf games with my dad. It’s hard to get outside and be active and just have fun, no matter how much I like the sport. I could play games for hours. But you just got to go out and do it, somehow. It’s hard to explain; I don’t even know what it is that forces me to go outside, certainly not my parents! 🙂
Here we go! Now we get to the good ones, the more ‘outside-the-box’ ones. This one and the rest are the ones I thought of last, as the more harder answers. I am a leader because I am able to lead others and motivate them to keep working hard without giving up. I also give good advice to people who need it. I encourage others to do their best, especially when it really matters. I also tend to always look at the positive in every situation instead of the negative.
As I said in the last one, I motivate others. I’d say I’m pretty good at that. I don’t know how to explain it, but I know how to keep up a person’s positive mental attitude, and to keep them growing as a person.
A Pet Lover
I love pets, specifically dogs and cats. I love my dog with everything I have. Seriously, we’re like sisters (that’s what I keep saying anyway) because I’ve known her so long. I know when she is happy and sad, or when she wants me to brush her, etc. 😄 And the cat, as much as I annoy him and pick on him, I got to admit, I love him too. How could you not? As much of a troublemaker he is, he is still as cute as a kitty-kat. 😄
I don’t know why exactly I would call myself a dreamer. It’s not like I dream of being a princess or anything. But probably because I like to think (and hope) that I’ll somehow do well on YouTube, do well in terms of my fitness, and do well acedemically. Really, doesn’t everybody? Also, taking it literally, doesn’t everybody love to dream a sweet dream while their sleeping? I sure do.
So finally, that is the end. Damn that is a loooooooong blog post, but super fun to write. This was a big topic to write and explain about too. I encourage you guys to think about this question too, and hopefully find an answer to: Who Am I? It is important to know who you truly are, otherwise how will you know where your life is headed?
Thanks for reading!
Stay bright and beautiful
