As a person who is currently knee-deep in trying to write a blog, and as a person who likes the idea trying to invent yourself, I'm not exactly a stranger to this subject. I'm no stranger to awkwardness or trying "too hard" or trying to be something I'm not. But hey, don't we have to try to be something we aren't in order to ever become something new? Isn't that how we create who we want to be? It's not like somebody hands you an identity at birth and you can never stray from how you started out. You build who you are through a whole lot of trying. Trying new hobbies, and putting yourself "out there" when you feel like it counts, and wearing new clothes, and acting new ways. So yeah, maybe she is trying to somebody she's not. Not yet. But maybe someday that trying will become a part of who she is.
