People rarely look past the surface.

Not that you blame them. You're so driven to succeed that you rarely slow down long enough to be your "true" self, anyway. To some extent you wonder if this nervously competitive exterior of yours is just you now-- if that compassionate, goofy little creature underneath the surface has disappeared entirely. But then you find yourself in a comfortable situation with people you've loved for years, and she reappears in full force. With them you're endlessly loving and giving, not blind to their faults but certainly incapable of letting go, and you can be a little... silly. Oftentimes people perceive you as the most serious of your siblings, but in the right situation, they're embarrassed of you and your punny, giggly side. Those who know you understand your driving force, even if you don't quite understand it yourself-- your family is what moves you, what keeps you smiling even when things are too overwhelming.

And you do have a talent in overwhelming yourself. You would love to be the poster child for responsibility. And perhaps, to some extent, you have made that for yourself; you're good at running projects and you're quite the go-getter in terms of leadership, but you're so damn scatterbrained. Your space is organized-- your life is overly organized, even-- but your thoughts are always in disarray, always fleeing from one idea to the next. It's often difficult for you to find the right words to express what you mean, and if you don't write down your plan for the day, you're likely to forget most of it.

But you are not, in any sense of the word, stupid. Perhaps you lack the sheer amount of innate intelligence that your youngest brother possesses, but you make up for that in effort. You study for tests long before the date, even in subjects you know you've mastered before having taken the class. Your professors think of you as a dream, despite your anxious nature. You don't miss class, you don't miss assignments, and you don't bother doing something unless you're going to give it your all. You always come out on top, no matter how hard you have to try, and for that reason you often exhaust yourself.

You pick up on things fairly quickly, too. Despite your affinity for reading every word in a textbook, you're better at hands-on, at watching something and trying it firsthand. You've always been a little parrot of whoever you admired. Your parents thought of you as their responsible little do-gooder, as you've always been eager to please. Chores? Done first thing in the morning. Homework? You might have a snack first upon coming home. Curfew? Did you ever even leave the house? Very little pressure was placed on you when you were young, if only because you placed plenty of that on yourself.

But your parents still worry. They see you struggling sometimes. They notice that you have few friends. You claim to be fulfilled by your music, but they know just how lonely you are. "I'm fine" is one of the most common things you say, yet every time your voice quivers and tears bead up at the corners of your eyes. "I'm okay." You aren't. But you don't want to burden anyone else with that.

You feel everything intensely. Loneliness, victory, joy, sadness-- but what most people recall of you is your temper. Yes, you have a tendency to explode every now and then. Yes, you are not afraid to stand up for yourself when you've been pushed too far. The disappointment here is just how funny other people think it is, when in reality you're seeing pure red. It's as if no one takes you seriously, even when you're at your angriest. You're so passionate in everything you do, so being trivialized like that is like a punch to the chest. You'd rather fight with someone than be laughed at.

Your personality isn't only overwhelming to yourself, though. Oftentimes your friends find themselves exhausted by the rate at which you talk, and you bounce back and forth between topics, negative one moment but positive the next. It's hard to keep up with your thoughts, even for yourself. But you're also willing to listen. The only problem with your listening skills is that you're an overly caring, active listener-- you constantly try to give advice and often feel confused when they don't follow it. It's the motherly instinct in you. It comes out in the form of nagging. Some appreciate this in you, while some ditch you entirely when that appears. It hurts every time.
