The hardest thing I’ve always been asked to do is to describe myself. I’ve been living as Chelsea for the past 25 years but for some reason it’s still never easy to explain. So who the hell am I?
First off, let’s start with the basics. I am a 20 something year old born and raised in Southern California. I have an amazing family and boyfriend. I am currently obsessed with watching The Voice. My guilty pleasures are watching Dance Moms, Project Runway, and WAGS. I’ve been in ‘Corporate America’ for the past 2 years since I graduated from college and I think I have finally reached my quarter life crisis.
The not so basic stuff. I consider myself an introverted extrovert. I think that being social for longer than 4 hours is extremely exhausting but I love it at the same time. The kinds of music that inspires me and makes me feel an emotional connection are songs that I can picture in movie scenes. If I can close my eyes and play out a movie scene with the song in the background, then I know I’m feeling it.
That kind of leads to another quirk about me. I am the most empathic person I know. I am so empathic to the point where I don’t just feel real people’s emotions; I feel fictional characters emotions. Weird right? Yeah I know. That is my favorite and my least favorite thing about myself. Also, I am a naturally curious person or what my boyfriend likes to call me ‘nosy’. When I sit in traffic I can’t help but think that in every car there’s a person with a totally different life than my own, with their own personality, and their own place to be.
We are all just drops of water in a bucket but I believe that every drop can make a splash. Everyone is different and unique in their own way. I am still learning who I am more and more each day when I face new challenges. If you’d like to follow me on my journey, stay tuned!
