Lately I have been asking myself about this space. I have been asking myself about social media. I have been asking myself "Does anyone here know the real me here?". No one can sincerely get to know or even begin the develop a connect of someone by simply connecting with them online, but lately I have been noticing this at large. I strive to be authentic with everything I create/say, but I feel like I must be failing at doing so. Possibly it's time for a change? Possibly I just need to expand more on who I actually am? Possibly.
With realizing this fact, I decided to do a Proust Questionnaire to expand on a little more of who I actually am, instead of what ever kind of person I seemed to create. I carried these two pieces of paper all around with me today, trying to come up with the answers I felt most reflected my true feelings.
Now, I challenge everyone to do the same. Take a step out from your normal conversations or writing, write something real about yourself. About your personal thoughts. Take this on the bus, to class, to work, to dinner. Sometimes writing and answering questions about yourself gives you the ability to move forward and think clearly, and even to reinvent. Plus, I love answering questions.. half of which are with a sense of humor.
