My First Fitness PhotoShoot (Back In March)

I forgot to post these on the website and on my blogs and honestly, I am glad I took the plunge because I plan on doing another photoshoot — hopefully outdoors and with a better physique but this was a grand experience and now I have somewhat of an idea on what to expect, so hopefully all of you enjoy these as well.

365 Days of Self Discovery: Your Past

Day 22

Did you find it easy to get along with your peers when you were growing up?

  • I’d say it was a mix of yes and no, because of me being an athlete all my life, I could make friends quite easily but when due to my socially awkward personality and struggling between wanting to fit in with the “cool” kids and being myself; sometimes it was harder to get along with peers. I was always the class clown growing up, I could make people laugh at my own expense but after awhile I then learned the difference between someone laughing with me and someone laughing at me & it truly opened my eyes to how some people perceived me. 
Would you say you got along with your peers growing up, or were you an outcast?
