Challenge Post #2
Blog #1 - I am a city girl at heart and ALWAYS will be. New York City to be exact - born and raised in Rosedale, Queens. My tag line for my poetry in college would be Rose from Rosedale - A Queen from Queens. Hence the title of this blog site. I hope that my experiences are able to help someone and I look forward to all I will experience on this journey.
Blog #2 - "Every Rose has its thorns" is a quote that I feel best describes my personality. Basically their are imperfections in every person and in every situation. I am loving, kind, loyal, determined, educated woman who loves to smile which could be characterized as the beauty of a rose. But I feel the perception of me is not always that. I've been called a B*tch, told I was too serious, told I was too hard on people, that I had a terrible attitude or that I expected too much. These are things I consider to be thorns. I try very hard to show my "rose-like" qualities instead of the thorns but sometimes they need to come out :)
I have grown a lot since college and I'm sure those college peers would not believe I am the same Stacy and its because....I'm not. I don't get the same satisfaction from the things that I've done and I am not proud of my behaviors. I have apologized and come to grips with everything being in the past and have even rekindled some friendships. Everything is a growing and learning process and those experiences were a part of mine.
