1) Look better 2) Wear a bikini and truly feel comfortable 3) Prove to myself that I can keep to something 4) Why not? It's healthy!
I grew up in a small, rural Vermont town. It doesn't deserve the reputation it has, but that's true of most things with a stereotype.
I am loud at times, spunky, and not afraid to dance in public or tell things how they are. I've played bass for three years and have been singing all my life; hopefully someday I'll be somewhat well known, but if not (and most likely not), I'll be happy owning a cafe or greenhouse.
