Does keeping it real ever go wrong?

In most cases for me, I don't think so. My definition of the classic phrase is to be open and upfront in a positive sense. I think that's one of my flirting methods. I mean, who wants someone in a shell?

I may be repeating myself, but I'm selectively open. If you're just staring at me, I'm obviously not going to treat you with my thoughts and philosophies (lol Alex). Be engaging and I'll do the same. All it takes is a simple phrase. The interest can spread like wildfire.

One of my fellow colleagues wrote an article in the school newspaper saying that everyone is fake. I didn't take any offense because I already know how real I am. I don't dress for others (I'm always my first priority) and frankly I don't try to be like other people. Friends influence me, but I'm in control of my destiny. I am who I am and if you're able to figure out (or at least try to) what that is, then you'll be on my side. Otherwise you might as well keep it moving.

One of my good friends was telling me about how my positivity moves her a great deal. People carry so much heavy weight on their shoulders and sometimes it's draining to hear about drama all the time. I'm glad to be that breath of fresh air. I have my problems, but I usually don't think about them when I'm with people I care about.

In other news, I may have found the realest girl in the land. We'll see where that goes...

Yeah, i think that you are an exeption to the vast majority of Hampton's Campus. The generalization is mainly about the " Hampton Celebrities" The ones who have invented characters and played them to the "T" on Hampton's campus, or shall i say stage.I know what you mean, and we had this convo, there are some people who just lose themselves in the Hampton lifestyle!!lol
