My dad’s philosophy of life, which is often stated, “Never judge a book by its cover”. Although people know this they still continue to judge by what they see on the outside, rather than looking deep into the soul of the human being they are looking at. Others perceive me as being stuck up or cocky. The reasoning behind it might be the fact that I keep to myself, and I start off quiet in class. I have long hair and my nails are naturally long so people often say I think I am “all that”. Through my years of being in school I always get called “the teacher’s pet”, because teachers rely on me and often ask for favors.
My mom and dad had one child, me, so people call me spoiled because I am the only child. If people only knew the whole story then they would not go off of what they see. I think they might say I am mean sometimes when it comes down to letting them copy my homework, but what do you expect? The positive things they say is that I am nice most of the time, pretty, smart and a good friend. This is how I am portrayed by my friends as.
When I look in the mirror I see a beautiful and confident young lady. Through my eyes I see everyone with a clean slate, and I believe people make mistakes in life but they learn from them. I do not socialize with everyone, because I do not like to be involved with drama. I am nice to everyone unless they give me a reason not to be, which rarely happens. I would say I am funny or goofy, because I like to play around and just have fun every day. I have pretty long hair and I appreciate this trait, so I get offended when people mistaken it as weave. I am shy around people I do not know, but the people that know me know I am not shy that I am outgoing when around them.
I think the reason that people think I am stuck up is because I start off not talking to a lot of people....
