Lately, I've been doing a lot of self pondering trying to figure out who I am and who I want to become. It's been rejuvenating and slightly painful. Somedays, I honestly don't know who I am. And that scares me. At the same time, I feel like it is impossible to define someone in a matter of a few words, or even a few paragraphs. One way I realized that I can know who I am is by identifying the things I love most.  For example, I love learning about biology. And frogs. Which explains why I bought this lovely book at the used book store today:

(A Plague of Frogs: A Horrifying True Story....Basically there were a bunch of mutated frogs and scientists found out why. Legit. I know.)

But I love other things too.... Like music, and my friends, and laughing. I really love laughing. Does that mean I'm a jamming frog with lots of friends who ribbits (laughs) all the time? Kind of. But it's still not me.

One person I know for sure I am me around is this girl. 

Isn't she beautiful??? Man she rocks my world. This is Brooklin. She is my younger sister. She is also one of the kindest, funniest, talented, most mature girls I know. She is always kind to those around her and she knows how to have a good time. This summer, we spent like 4 days together without the rest of my family. They were probably my favorite days of the whole summer. Except for Hawaii. 

We took lots and lots of silly pictures. Seriously, this girl is a riot! But most of all, she is my best friend. We are so different from one another, and we don't always get along, but we always love each other. There were so many times over the past few years that I was able to confide in Brooklin about different things I was experiencing, and she was a great listener. Don't get me wrong, this girl is not afraid to give her opinion, but she is always willing to listen. Man I miss her! 

But I'm still asking... Who am I? Maybe I will never know because I don't have a perfect perspective on my life, but I do know this. Simply put, I am a daughter of God who misses her sister very very much and I sure hope she knows just how much I love her! 

In other news, I wore sandals today. It was probably the best day of 2012. My toes have missed the freedom!
