When it comes to myself and the person I am, there is a lot to know.
My interests far exceed the norm and I can’t be put into one particular group of people. I feel as though I have written many article discussing, and sharing my point of view on a variety of different topics and teen issues. But I’ve noticed that I haven’t written many articles in regards to myself and my interests. With that being said I’m going to tell my readers a bit more about Miss Taylor Jolene Snell; what my interests are, what I do in my spare time and the type of young lady I am.
I have always been a free spirited person. I don’t let the troubles I’ve experienced weigh me down, regardless of the extent of the situation. Always keeping my chin lifted up. By putting a smile on my face I’m able to see beauty in everyone and everything, and keep positive. Even with the hurt and sadness I’ve been through or have been associated with I forgave and forgot. Letting the things from my past and even present restrict what I have to look forward to in my future, would just be plain unfair. Over the years I have been also rebellious, but the good kind. I am always one to stand out, and dare to wear what I want, shave my hair off if I want and say whatever is on my mind. I don’t regret a thing I have said or done because it has made me one amazing young girl.
Before when people asked me what I was interested in or the type of person I was, my mind floated off and tried to piece anything and everything together that I liked, did, or just was. Being asked a simple question such as that was confusing for me! It seemed physically impossible to tell someone all that I was, without sounding a little ‘funny’ upstairs. I am all these kinds of people, I am a wallflower, free spirit, hippie, misfit, athlete, rebel ‘at times’, you name it, I’m a little bit of it. All of the many different walks of life I’ve been exposed to, also the struggles I’ve had to fit in as a young girl has shaped and molded me into a very mixed end product!
I have picked up such a wide variety of interests and styles that when I look in a mirror all I see is a Neapolitan ice cream. But I couldn’t be more pleased, I have accepted myself and I embrace my uniqueness.
There are so many things I do that I’m sure many of you also enjoy or have enjoyed in the past. Such as walking for hours with no real destination, writing lyrics and stories, whether they be fiction or non-fiction are some things I do all too often. To this day I still believe my middle name should have been random, because every day all the time, I’m doing something to make myself and/or others laugh or smile. It makes me feel like a million bucks when I put a smile on someone’s face. Volunteer work is quite pleasant for me. I have done tons over the years; at carnivals, libraries and day camps. So needless to say I like helping others. When it comes to music and style that is still difficult to explain. Bands such as Black Sabbath, Cage the Elephant, Tokyo police club and The White Stripes all are amazing and there are all quite different from each other. That just shows more of my many different sides. Style is fun. I go crazy! I throw skinny jeans, a Nirvana T-shirt, a whole bunch of tacky jewelry, and a ’40s styled hat all together and call it done. That’s just my every day look.
For the longest time I was very confused with myself because of how ‘out there’ I was, but now I love myself and all the weird fun and crazy things I do. I live everyday as it comes, and with every breath I take I leave behind a little bit of love in every place, everything and every person. That’s the biggest thing people need to know about me.
