Whatcha, whatcha know about me? Well, I’m 5 foot 2, I’m gonna mess wit you, because I’m always down for fun. But if you cross my path, you betta make it fast ’cause I ain’t waitin’ for no one. Ha. Dropped it!
The thing is, we’re down to drop jokes, but when pressed for personal details, we’re a little lacking in the giving it up department. One thing that’s evident after this week is, we are not open books. Maybe that’s a good thing, maybe that’s something we have to work on. But it definitely raises a question, how much should you really expose about yourself? Is it good to have walls, or should we break them down like every Shawn Mendez and Boy Band love song out there says we should? I don’t know what the right answer is, but I know that I had a hard time revealing some more intimate details about my life in our little game of 20 questions. And it wasn’t even the down and dirty questions that had us a little silent. Worst day ever? Well, we went dead for a handful of seconds on this one. And why? Who the fuck cares anyway? Once the questions required some of heart and soul, our mouths kind of stopped working.
So episode 12 was meant to be all fun and games, but there are some moments of reflections, and you can hear something in the silence. Something that reveals our insecurities and fears. Listen through the absence of sound, and you’ll find us present. Learn a little bit about who we are through our responses, and lack of. Take some time to do some soul searching and ask yourself, how much truth are you willing to reveal to the world? We are all afraid. Giving others evidence of vulnerability adds to that fear. We started this project for fun, but as the weeks go on, we are learning that like everything else in life we are going to find a balance here. With fun comes serious topics. This gives us all an opportunity to reflect on the good and the bad, the beauty and the ugly, the highs and the lows. And it’s all good baby, baby.
