I always have so many ideas for Daisy but I am using this challenge for two reasons. The first is to channel all my ideas because they are so chaotic! The second is because I am always looking for more inspirations even if I have yet to run out. A while back ago I even made Daisy a tumblr so I could always be inspired to make sets for her. http://afieldofdaisy.tumblr.com/
I have a feeling that this will take more than 30 days but I will try and get it done by the end of May. I will still write for Daisy while I do this too.
Day 01 – Introduce yourself, in great detail
• Name, Age, Birthday, Physical traits, Ethnicity, etc.
Hello, I’m Daisy Thames.
I’m seventeen going on eighteen (in August...only four months away). It’ll be nice to have the freedom of being eighteen, though I suppose I will already have that when I go to college. My birthday is right in the middle of the month on August sixteenth. Luckily for me I am the only one in my family with a birthday in August which is a miracle considering that I have fifty cousins. Okay, not fifty but close enough. It is exactly one month after my best friends birthday though. I think that is pretty cool. She always teases how she will be the first to turn eighteen. I tell her right back that I will be last to turn twenty-one and I wont have to spend it without my best friend. That always shuts her up.
Enough about my birthday. You want to know what I look like? Lets put it this way: I am hard to miss. Being a 5’10” high schooler isn’t easy. The boys have barely started puberty and the majority of the girls are lucky to make it to 5’7”. Ugh it is a pain in my rear sometimes but in a way, it is something I like about myself. Another thing that makes me hard to miss is how skinny I am. I’ve just always ate healthy (except for Sunday dinners...SO much food) and I run a lot but I think it might be genes too because my whole family is like that. Being a Whitaker with a restaurant in a city that is known for it’s cheese steaks is a recipe for disaster so I have to blame the genes. I’ve got blue eyes but somedays they have a brownish tint to them and I have brown hair that goes a few inches past my shoulders. I think I am a pretty girl I guess. It depends on the day. I’ve got my insecurities like most but I am aware of how I look. I definitely do not have a sexy bombshell look...more girl next door. Along with all of that, I am a white girl. My best friend Anya says that I am the whitest girl she has ever met. I’m not that pale though. She exaggerates. Something people always notice right away about my looks is my smile. It is big, cheesy, and my best trait in my opinion. Okay I am really rambling right now. I do that a lot. Next subject!
I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I am a granddaughter of the Whitakers and if you haven’t heard the name then I will bet that you aren’t from the area. My clan is mostly known for our family owned restaurant that dishes up drool worthy food. We actually gather there every single Sunday. Apparently they have been going on since my mom was little. I kind of like the tradition even if it means having to get my homework done my Saturday because Sunday evenings are filled up. Currently I am a senior at the Baldwin School. I cannot wait to get out. My friends keep trying to convince me to go to university on the west coast but honestly I have no clue where I am going. I want to get away from the area for sure. As much as I like family dinners, I cannot imagine another year of them. I feel like I will be trapped here forever if I don’t leave soon. Wherever I’m going, I hope to become a doctor. It is intense, difficult, and completely fulfilling. I’m still young though so I’ve got a ways to go before I set anything in stone. First I have to graduate. I am the vice president of my class and I am taking the best classes my school has to offer. Sometimes I feel like the work will kill me but most of it comes easy. I like school. Weird, right?
I think something important to know about me is that I am a lesbian. Not something I tell people...or anyone. It is something I’ve known since I was little and I have had a few crushes but I’ve never had a girlfriend. I think I am too afraid. I am working on that though. It’s tough to deal with it all. Life is a big question mark sometimes and it is easy to get lost but I believe that the best you can do is just to keep going and enjoy what you can.
