More Than This

"It needs to be autobiographical, or be about yourself."

Oh no.

"It can include things you've done, things you like, places you've been, places you want to go, or just almost anything else as long as it's about you- it must be representative of your life."

I gather the supplies and stare at them blankly. All the other students start working on ideas- or at least the girls do, sketching out logos of their favorite clothing stores and characters from movies they like. As usual, the boys would rather take double gym than this art class.

"Mariah, why aren't you working?"

"There's more to me."

Not to be vain, but my life is more complex than can be put into five images.

That was then (seventh grade art class); this is now.

You know that there's more to me than what's in this blog, right?

Like, you know that my life isn't quite so awful as it seems, I don't think about this stuff 24/7, I have real hobbies?

Good, I just wanted to make sure.

  1. Why don't you tell us about those hobbies of yours? Perhaps it'll teach us more about who you are as a person and how this relates to the problems you're experiencing.
