Behind The Scenes: The Life of a Scorpio

Sunday, 25 February 2018

Last month, I published a post about the 15 things that make me a stereotypical #White girl. The post was supposed to be light, relatable, and (hopefully somewhat) funny.

It was just a bit of a fun post for me to write up.

Yet, a day after I put it up, I received a handful of absolutely ridiculous DM's on Twitter about the post. Some lovely person decided to strike the courage to anonymously write a comment on the post saying that I "sound stupid". Lol, okay honey.

After having had a little giggle with my friends about how silly these comments were, I decided to write a post that shows you who I really am; not just a stupid, skin-deep #WhiteGirl.

In reality, I'm much more complex than these people seemed to think I had made myself out to be. And I want to use this post as a retaliation- to prove that I have more depth as a person.

And fyi, I'm not a 'teenage dropout'- I'm actually in my second year of university, studying in the best business school in the UK. Yano, just to clarify. 

My flatmate and I spend a lot of time looking at our horoscopes. While I don't necessarily believe in them -most of the time, my horoscope is waaaay off- I do think that there is a lot that you can learn from reading them. In my experience, reading my horoscope has made me a lot more self-aware and reflective.

I was born on the 30th of October, which makes me a Scorpio. 

And Scorpios are known for being much more than skin deep. As a water sign, Scorpios are typically intensely emotional beings; loyal, dedicated, incredibly passionate... and also incredibly fierce. 

I am ardent in my relationships; I give my all, and expect the same in return. I stand by the people I love, and constantly remind them that I am unconditionally there for them- regardless of anything they think might change our relationship. Because I know what it is like the feel intense emotions -both good and bad- I always look out for the friends who I know might be struggling. And to me, it doesn't matter if we've had a fall out, or not spoken in months; I will always be by their side.

 My heart and mind are never switched off, and I am very rarely apathetic about anything. If I believe in someone -or something- I will invest everything I have into them. I have a lot of admiration for creative people, and will do whatever I can to support or encourage them. My boyfriend plays the drums in a band called Dootchi, and one of the ways I try to support him in that is by inviting a group of friends to every gig that he's played in Glasgow since we met. To me, it's incredibly important that I am supportive of this, because music means so much to both of us; it's one of the things that brought us together.

As a Scorpio, I am also known to have bottomless layers of complexity. So you may think that you know me, when in reality you probably only know a fraction of who I really am. 

While I love reading the people around me, and getting to know them inside out, I very rarely allow for people to read me. I've got a very positive, bubbly personality which can sometimes give people the illusion that I'm close to a number of people- but the reality is pretty much the opposite. Generally, I keep my cards to myself. 

I'm not going to lie- I do have a considerably large circle of friends- but I could count the amount of close friends I have on one hand... and 90% of those relationships were built over around 5 years (or more) of me gradually allowing myself to trust them. Suspicion and guardedness are my biggest downfalls- but they also translate into my fiercely protective nature. 

In short; I look after the things I care about. 

If you are reading this, and still think I sound stupid, uneducated, or skin deep, I have one last thing to say to you; keep it to yourself. There is never, ever any need to be so petty as to take the time out of your day to say unkind things to another person. And if you really feel a burning desire to tell someone you disagree with them, or think they are portraying themselves badly, at least take the time to consider whether what you are about to say is constructive or destructive.

And never pass on a destructive message.

There is quite simply no need.

Adios, xo
