This is who I am?

Hi, my name is Sparrow.

I'm a 21 year old journalism student from South Africa. I absolutely love to write - it is my passion!  Another passion of mine is photography, but I am incredibly afraid of this because there are so many AMAZING photographers out there - I wonder if I can really ever be as good. 

I have issues.  Sometimes I cry.  So basically I’m human. Sometimes I think I’m totally messed up.  I also have a lot of opinions.  I tend to think I’m always right.  People still love me though, but only the people who know me very well which is not very many because I’m so so sooo shy.

I'm sensitive.  Too sensitive - everything that people say gets to me.   My whole life, I've just been trying to get people to like me, probably because I wasn't sure if I really liked myself.  I'm still not sure.  But now I'm starting to realise that life is not about being liked by EVERYBODY.   I also realise that it's not necessary to be PERFECT.  So instead, I'm working on just being myself, whoever that is.

I love reading the news, listening to music full blast through my earphones and dancing in secret when I’m alone.  Sometimes I dance in public but only when I’ve been drinking.  I will ALWAYS wish i could be that girl who dances on tables and doesn’t care what other people think.
