I know that I have a hot

temper, am stubborn.

I do not always look before I leap.

I can be shy. Surprisingly.

And when I was really young

like two or three

I had temper tantrums

every once in awhile

because I firmly believe that

there is magic in the world.

But where is this place?

We still don’t know.


I always feel like myself.
