There are a number of things that I would like to change about myself. During the summer, I was actually trying to reinvent myself. I want to get thin and fit, and I want to not care about what the rest of the world thinks, and I want to be this huge mystery girl who has a pretty face and a sharp mind. Basically I want to be Alaska Young from John Green’s Looking For Alaska. I know that being a fictional character is nigh impossible, but not with John Green’s characters. He made Alaska so real, that I mourned her loss for weeks after finishing the book. I have even taken up one of his famous quotes as my motto: “I go to seek a great perhaps.”
I would like to change everything about me. I want to stop being this safe, sheltered little girl and I want to live like a teenager. God only knows Alaska pulled that one off to a T.
