On this page I could just state random facts about myself; how old I am, my nationality, what my favorite hobbies are, favorite color, languages I speak. But again I don’t find that those facts define a person. So many people are 17 years old, there are about 10million Belgians, a handful of colors to have as a favorite and a variety of languages that anyone can speak if they are up to it. So how could that possibly define who I really am? I don’t think it can. So here I am digging deeper into the person who I am, wish to be, and strive to being. My name is Maïté and this is me. (I’m sorry that this is so long, but for some reason I couldn’t stop writing, either I’m really emotional atm or just very bored.)
Traveling is something that has always been a part of me. Since I was small I’ve lived in 4 different countries and there is always something so unique and special to each and every country and just the thought that there are about 190 more countries that I could visit baffles me! I want to walk along the Great Wall of China, climb the heights of Machu Picchu, dive down the Great Barrier Reef, fly over New York city at night in a helicopter, drive through the Australian outback, swim with dolphins in the Caribbean, hike through Yellowstone, visit the ancient kingdoms of Jordan, ride an elephant in India, have an excursion to Antarctica and just about anything else one can think of doing that involves some guts, a suitcase, map and money.
I’m the type of person that thinks positively about the future and what it could possibly withhold. I may have been lazy here and there, I may have made mistakes, I could have done some things better, but what is life without some tough obstacles. From every mistake you learn and if one does not show you your mistakes then how will you ever grow? I’ve always said that in the future I want to by my own Ferrari with my own money and savings, I want a beautiful house and two wonderful children, a loving husband and so much to offer to the world. Now if this will come true that is partially up to me and up to fate to decide. I don’t believe in god but I do believe that certain things happen for a reason as obscure as that sometimes may play out.
I do find myself caring, and I know that I would do anything for my loved ones such as my family, my baby dog, and close friends. These are the people who in the end get me through each day. What would one be without anyone there to love them? I don’t get emotional during dramatic and depressing movies, I don’t get emotional when I have to say goodbye to my friends when moving countries, and I don’t get emotional when listening to the most meaningful songs. I get emotional when I see animal abuse, I get emotional when I see an old person sitting alone of the bus or tram, I get emotional when I see small children not getting what they deserve and need, I get emotional when my test grades are bad, I get emotional when someone gets hurt and I feel like I did it, I get emotional at seeing people get hate here, the one place where people are supposed to express themselves. So as much as I smile and make funny comments and giggle and think positive I am as much a human being with a heart and emotions as anyone else, even if I may not show it sometimes.
I could go on all day about who I am, but if you want to know more just talk to me whenever you want to! My ask is always open and I ALWAYS answer every single message I get. I’m sorry if you where hoping to find the most naughty things about me on here, or if you were expecting something with a lot more spunk but that’s not who I am and if you can’t accept that, well then I’m sorry for wasting your time. Have a lovely day/evening and please don’t forget to stay true to yourself, and that no matter what, as cheesy as it sounds you are all beautiful!<3
