Welcome to "My Looking Glass Self"

Dear Bloggers,
My name is Kendra and my blog will be written with the purpose of having open dialogues by being completely transparent with you. My blog (and its title) is based off of W.E.B. Dubois’ theory of “The Looking Glass Self” which dictated that people tend to behave in the way that they believe others expect them to behave.
My blog will be based off my own personal experiences in society, with my family, friends and my own personal inner struggles with the hope of you sharing your own experiences. I know I sound very serious now, but I hope the blog will be just like me, very adorable and thought provoking (how do you like my tooting my own horn, huh?).
Well, to legitimize myself to you, I’m a recent college graduate with a BA in English, and a minor in Sociology. My goals in life are to (eventually move to New York) become published, go to grad school, work in a publishing company, get enough knowledge to own my own publishing companies.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, here are 15 interesting things about me for you laugh about:
1. I started reading Shakespeare when I was in 3rd grade.
2. When my sisters and I were younger, me and my sister Kelli used to do these skits that were performed ENTIRELY IN SLOW MOTION!!! We had maybe 3 different ones, but the main one I remember was “The Dinner Date.” ;-)
3. I refuse to write “LOL.” I ALWAYS write “HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!” I refuse to conform. :-D
4. My most cherished possession is this BEAUTIFUL jewelry box my buddy Tyler got me from South Korea in high school.
5. I have over 200 books, and over 100 DVDs I LOVE reading and watching movies!!
6. One of my new ring tones is that new SNL song “J--- In my Pants.” I KNOW it’s not appropriate, but that song is HILLARIOUS!!
7. I used to have a stuttering problem growing up, and I used to have to go to a speech specialist. As a matter of fact, you can still hear me stutter if I get very flustered. I think it’s charming!!
8. My all-time favorite food is hotdogs!!
9. I hate when girls talk down to each other, and think that EVERY girl is conniving, and catty. My girl friends are NOT like that, so PLEASE stop assuming that we are. Oh, and girls who ARE like that, STOP IT, YOU’RE JUST MAINTAINING THE STEREOTYPE!! EVOLVE, FOOLS!!!
10. I LOVE VH1’s “I Love Money,” that show is GREAT!!
11. I was a nanny for six weeks in North Carolina and one night I woke up in a panic in the middle of the night, didn’t recognize where I was and tried to escape through the window. I realized once I had the window open, and was about to burst through the screen… yeah….
12. To go FULLY natural, I cut off a total of 16 inches off of my hair.
13. I thank God EVERY morning that NO ONE can hear my thoughts. It’s just that… sometimes when people say or do stupid things… Lord help me, my thoughts are not the most Christian ones…
14. I’m TERRIFIED of drowning, and almost drowned FIVE times!! I refuse to get in water that’s over 5 ft, because I’m 5’3, and I don’t like being in water that’s taller than me. It FREAKS me out!!
15. One of my first friends was this little boy named Austin. We had the same speech specialist, and he had a prosthetic arm. He used to take it off and let me play with it. I got in trouble once because I was swinging it and knocked EVERYTHING off of our speech specialist’s desk!! She was SOO mad!! I still feel bad about it to this day.
