About Me

First off welcome to my blog! 
I am a sucker for fireworks so that's one fact about me.
I'm Odette, a mother to my brother (I adopted him), artist, teacher, daughter, cousin, sister, one of God's princesses, niece, and a student still. People have given  me the nicknames of Odie or Dette. I am French, and the French language was the first language I learned. I love soft romantic things. I prefer different kinds of music not just a certain genre. I love Harry Potter like he was family. Seriously, I love all things Harry Potter. Another obsession is vintage things. From dresses to food to hair to cars I will fall in love with it. I am a tomboy. I was raised on a farm out the outskirts of Paris as well as on a farm here in Huntsville. I love riding horses and find great fun in climbing hay bales. I do like technology and fashion. I love video games. I love being called a nerd because it doesn't bother me.  
“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.”
