My name is Ariel. I am me.
As happy as can be?
Always comparing myself to others I see.

Why do they matter?
Do I really care?
Will it get me into college?
Can't help but become fixated and caught up.
"Did you see his/ her picture on Instagram?"
"Make a Twitter!"
"Do it for the Vine!"
Can't help but think it's a waste of time.
Still, distraction. Procrastination.
Can't help but compare.
Am I shallow to want the GoPro?
Social media-- the epitome of facade?
Still, it's what society and image is built upon.
Can't help but think it's all a con.
Can't control that.
Can only control me.
Behind it all, though, I am Ariel.
A.riel person. A.riel student. A.riel applicant.
and what I hope and aspire to be?
