A Tomboyish Way

 'I can do it like a brother, do it like a dude, grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you...' Jessie J 

From being an early age I wasn't too girly myself, in fact I had my room decorated in my favourite football team and player figurines on my shelf.

I never really wore makeup or put bows in my hair, instead I wore track suits and baseball caps and trainers that all boys my age would wear.

I would come straight from school, get changed and ride my bike, I would go to the golf fields, climb in old houses and pick on boys I'd like to fight.

As I grew older I must admit I had a boyfriend every now and then, I went from being a little tomboy to having crushes on famous men.

I liked the good old boy bands and put their posters on my wall, I guess hanging out with girls made me feel like one myself after all.

I enjoyed putting on makeup and hanging out with my girlfriends, but shopping became harder having to shop for the latest trends.

I soon enough hit puberty and the mood swings came flooding in, looking down and noticing my chest was growing and realising periods would soon begin.

The inconvenience of being a woman was becoming known to me, but this was the start of the rest of my life as the woman I was meant to be.

'I wanna be free, to feel the way I feel. Man! I feel like a woman!...' Shania Twain
