Hi there! I come a bit later than usual today, I'm sorry!
Some weeks ago, Ella (ellacrabb.blogspot.com) made a post about the differences about how she is on her blog and on her "real" life, and she invited everybody to write a post about it. I thought it to be so interesting! That's why I'm here today, to introduce you the offline Acqua.
When you meet me for the first time, you'll tend to think that I'm really extroverted, because I talk a lot, but what I am when I meet new people is terrified! With the years I've learned to enjoy it, but even though I'll talk a lot, you'll only get the surface. I'll tell you about the activities I'm involved with, my hobbies... but never anything too deep or personal.
People who know me a little bit tend to think I'm distant. That's because I never know how to act in front of them, I kinda find it easier with people I don't know at all. If I know you a little bit but it hasn't been a long time since we met, if I like you and trust you, I'll just let go random pieces of quite personal information as if it weren't important. That's my way of telling you I trust you haaha
People who know me a lot still won't know everything about me. I never tell everything to the same person. And I think that's gonna continue for many years to come.
The word I think describes me the best is "contradiction". As you've seen, I can be both really extroverted and really shy. I'm also pretty logical, but really imaginative. I'm down-to-earth but I'm on the clouds. I can change a lot depending on the situation, and here comes one of my most characteristical features: I like being in control of things.
That doesn't mean I have to boss around. No, it means that if the situation I'm in is out of my comfort zone and I can't control it, I'll get really anxious and overwhelmed. I think that's why I change so much. I adapt to the situation so I won't freak out.
The image people have of me is this girl who's literally EVERYWHERE. She's involved with everything, and she loves being busy all the time. People trust me because I'm everywhere, apparently.
The image other people have of me is that I'm intelligent. I don't want to show off, of course! But I've always gotten great marks. I think I get things quickly, and I know how to get things done, so I've found what works for me when I'm studying. And to me, that's the key for a good mark. Knowing your strategies!
I couldn't leave my favourite things out of this. You all know them, but I'll list them anyway. Writing and reading make me who I am. I've been studying music since I was 5, and it's a huge part of my life. When I like something, I really really like it. And working with kids is connected to my whole being.
That's it, I think. Until Monday...
A big big hug!
