Hello there, you may call me Paige. Technically, you may call me whatever you like, but I'd prefer Paige, if you will.
Well, let me start off by saying that I am 21 years of age. Yes, I know 21 is considered young, but who's to decide what is young and what is not? I
have seen more than most people twice my age. Experienced more, felt more, hurt more. I've been told I am wise beyond my years, that I have an old
soul. Well, to be honest, I really don't know anything about anything. So far, I have only been able to conquer the ability to have an open mind, to
accept anything that anyone might throw at me. I'll pretty much believe anything I hear and I only question things in my mind.
Alas, I am tired of living in my mind! I desperately need an escape from where I am to a place I've never been. I need to escape from my mind, for it
to be pried open and filled with endless facts, or opinions, about things people either don't want to hear or are just too close-minded to
So, I am starting right here on ATS. So many different opinions in one place, where else to try to learn about what is really going on out there? If I
can't learn anything alongside hundreds of thousands of humans voicing hundreds of thousands different points of views then where can I?
I only ask for one favor: If each person reading my words here, my cry out for change, could send me just one thought, opinion, truth, lie, belief,
whatever it is that comes to mind when painting the pages of an open book. Would it not be somewhat of a prideful thing to know that you each helped
out in the creation of a new mind? Well, mine is open and ready to be painted with every color.
Keep in mind, though, that a person only gets one. Once you lose it, you don't get it back. So tread lightly on the shimmering waves. Help mold my
mind to the perfect shape, not for anything in return, I ask, but for your OWN personal gain. A gain that most would overlook. The ones here, though,
You are not like MOST, that's why you're her, right?? To put what you know and believe OUT there.
So, if you are going to put your awareness anywhere, why not put in in me?? I won't turn anything away, I will never put you down. I could either end
up another obnoxious ego-tistical loser who sits around spitting out mindless, unknown facts that no one will find interesting just for the simple
fact that I am spitting them out...OR...You could help mold me into someone who can make something happen. Or perhaps stand beside others who will be
making things happen.
Its up to you, fellow enthusiasts. I've put my message out there, left myself open and ready to let anyone and/or everyone molest and penetrate my
innermost thoughts and beliefs. I'm 21, remember. I still have a lot to learn.
