What phases have you gone through?
Posted 8/24/14
Personally, I've been a lot. For a time, I was, respectively, a goth, a rapper (I made mixtapes), a pseudo-stoner, a Satanist, a skater kid, a shaved head punk, a science lover, an Asatru, a vegan, a documentarian, a pseudo-Mexican, a hipster, a Scientologist, a dancer, a weightlifter, a stand up comedian, an Atheist activist, a studying priest, and some stuff I'm forgetting. All these phases failed miserably, and I mean miserably because I was obviously putting on an act in most of them.

Now I do whatever I want because screw labels

What phases have you gone through that have brought you to be what you are today? Which might actually just be another phase

I had a tomboy phase, a recycling phase, an air quotes phase, a rebellious phase...that's all I can think of. I think once I got out of the rebellious phase, I realized that it was mostly really stupid, but at the same time it made me realize that I did have things that were important to me that I wanted to stand up for. So now I'm striving towards those things.

Uh... sarcastic phase... EXTREME book-worm phase... I still really like books, but not as much as, like, 2 years ago. I would bring books to lunch, plop my stuff down at some random peoples' tables, and then just start eating and reading. I still bring books to lunch, but I only read if everyone's being quiet or everyone went to the lunch line.

Yeah it was an odd phase of pentagrams taped onto the wall and prayers to the devil in my living room.

In middle school I went through an "emo/scene" kid phase. It was bad. I really hope no one ever finds pictures of me from 7th- mid-8th grade. Those are definitely cringe worthy. I had the weird parted, choppy hair. It was seriously parted so far on the left side of my head. I'd say the top of my ear. Good lord, don't get me started on the colored skinny jeans. And neon beaded bracelets that'd cover almost my entire arm. And fishnet gloves with neon green lace... I still have those, by the way.

...At least my taste in music made up for it.

I went through the teenager phase. You know, the 'I can't be bovvered, stop embarrassing me, mum' phase. I've also found myself toning down on the amount of alternative rock I listen to so maybe that was a phase as well. But as far as 'phases' go that's probably it.

ok, went through being loud nerd in elementary then quiet nerd in middle school.

Then "wanna be thug life" in High School. Explanation, I was starting to get bullied in middle school and then it stopped by being friends with a group of Mexicans who where really nice but had a tough appearance.

Then returned to my nerdy roots and anime then just became my forever anime fan phase.
The end

For the most part I have remained pretty consistent though when I hit 19 I made a decision to become more outspoken and physical. My ideals haven't changed so I don't abuse my presence or put on an air of toughness when it isn't needed. I have struck a balance between being open minded and knowing when to stand my ground.

It sucks sometimes socially to stand up for someone being mistreated and not in a position to defend themselves. It can really invoke the ire of some more hard-headed family members. More than anything emotional toughness is important along with the phrase "stay classy". Through everything I make sure I do not harbor any bitterness and am willing to forgive without ever stooping to the of personal attacks or name calling. Many grown adults tend to act like children and are obsessed with revenge and in the end you just gotta be the mature one and wear them down and "kill them with kindness."

Hmm... been a fighter all my life, though I'm sick of fighting. I've also always been in an adventurous person all my life, but I'm also a nerd. So I'm an adventurous fighting nerdy person all the way through, really.

8) Youtuber, let's be honest this is the new teen phase, In today's age everyone will at one poit or another attempt to make it big on YT.
9) fiancé
10) Depression, mainly do to #3, 4, and 9
11) Cynical
12) Narcissistic
13) Story telling, I would call myself a writer, but I never really managed to complete an actual story, I mostly wrote the summary and outline, then started but gave up
14) Professional Wrestler...yeah that one didn't even last a month

There are many other I probably forgot about but these are off the top of my head.
