"What do you want to be when you grow up?" was the question every
teacher had back in first grade when we had to put our dream career
into pictorial form with a bunch of unsharpened mediums and a piece
of blindingly white printer paper. Honestly, I didn't remember what
I doodled until five years later when they thought it'd be cute to
return the masterpieces done by our younger selves. What came back
was a picture of me operating a fancy blue Crayola school bus with
an overjoyous stoner smile on my face while everyone next to me had
doctor, lawyer, and even astronaut. But really, why grow up when
we're already growing old? This is who I am.
I am seven layers of silly on a daily basis, and that is one part
of me that will never change. I take things as they come and go
with the flow of wherever life takes me. On top of all this, I am
absolutely, head over heels, in LOVE with......
learning. (How can I make the perfect guacamole? Whose idea was it
to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'? Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
Squirrel?) Every single day, I am in pursuit of interesting
additions that would make the story of my life worth telling. I am
the girl who dies laughing while trying to tell a joke as everyone
My name is Marie.
