I am feisty, somewhat loud, I can be unintentionally abrasive, but really I'm pretty squishy. A tomboy who barely knows how to do my own makeup, I still love a formal dress when I can find a reason to wear one.
I dig on being honest, I hate passive-aggression, and while I can field a confrontation if I have to, I'd rather not. I am barefoot a lot, kind of squirrelly, and my brain-to-mouth filter is not so great. I also swear like a dockworker once I'm comfortable. Or tired. Or excited. I'm pretty excitable.
I'm spending a lot of time growing my confidence, working on my zen, and laughing more than your average bear, because life, it is funny.
I'm not particularly 'refined'. Effective though.
I should add that I am not a cynic. I may have a sardonic sense of humor sometimes, but I also like slapstick, and this dichotomous equation holds throughout my entire personality. I love celebration and holidays, I think Valentine's Day is great, I love St. Patrick's Day and I'm not Irish (mostly Dutch actually), I love Cinco de Mayo because screw the French (I don't really hate the French), and Dia de los Muertos is celebrated in my home (again, no Latin blood here). I take what I like in the world around me and I adhere it to my own. What fits I keep, what doesn't I let go of.
