  7. "I am what I am
    I am my own special creation.
    So come take a look,
    Give me the hook or the ovation.
    It’s my world that I want to take a little pride in,
    My world, and it’s not a place I have to hide in.
    Life’s not worth a damn,
    ‘Til you can say, “Hey world, I am what I am.”
    I am what I am,
    I don’t want praise, I don’t want pity.
    I bang my own drum,
    Some think it’s noise, I think it’s pretty.
    And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
    Why not try to see things from a different angle?
    Your life is a sham ‘til you can shout out loud
    I am what I am!
    I am what I am
    And what I am needs no excuses.
    I deal my own deck
    Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
    There’s one life, and there’s no return and no deposit;
    One life, so it’s time to open up your closet.
    Life’s not worth a damn ‘til you can say,
    “Hey world, I am what I am!”"
    — La Cage aux Folles

  9. Anonymous asked: What do you look for in a person? For friendship and a romantic relationship?

    In general, I really like people who can make me laugh!  That’s probably the #1 quality I look for in a person.  I really appreciate people who can hold a conversation, because I like talking to people about anything and everything.  I also like people who are willing to go on fun and exciting adventures with me, and people who let me take pictures of/with them because I love taking pictures wherever I go.  Also, I feel like this goes without saying but just being a nice person is really attractive.
