PERSONALITY
Image

Personality:

People think I'm either a bitch or weird as fuck. My mood normally depends on who I'm with. However I can be an opinionated asshole...My sarcasm is part of my dry humor, which could be taken as insulting, or discriminatory. truth is, I just hate a shitton of people. No big deal. I love psychology, people are fun to analyze... Haha... And mess with... I like to keep to myself mostly, play my music, write, make music, or doodle. I have some mad doodling skills, not going to lie...I can draw you a really weird looking acid-tripping dinosaur. But I can't do much more than just doodles...

I guess I've been described as faulty, odd, quirky and strange...All of which are generally true. I come off as uninterested, or completely disconnected from reality. I don't like to think about the consequences of my actions all that much, which has gotten me into a lot of trouble. People might also consider me secretive. That of course, is an understatement...Secretive is kind of my specialty.

Maybe I put the walls up to see if anyone will have the balls to break them down, or maybe I'm just naturally afraid of everyone. It's in my nature, I don't want to get hurt emotionally so I just block it all off.

Besides all that emotional bull, I'm pretty sarcastic, with a bittersweet, love or hate, kind of personality. Either people find me funny, or they hate my existence. Hopefully the second option is all the more agreeable, I hate being the center of attention. Or have any kind of attention thrown at me. Even if it's in a positive lighting. I love to bury my head in a good book. I hate when people come to judge me so freely, it's just wrong... You don't know me, get off my back, ok?

I like being alone... It's not that I mind people or socializing, it's just really not my style.

The Murray's


The liquor from the night before stained Tay's lips and she lets out a huff: Orientation, how ... Exciting?

To be completely honest, Taylor couldn't have been more bored with it, on the other hand her brother Maxx was surprisingly stoked about the whole level of excitement.

The girl turns to her brother as they stand outside of the main building and she snorts, lighting up a cigarette. Hauling her bags over to a bench, she sat down and Max turned to her with a small frown.

"Don't get TOO excited, Tay-Burt." He smirks, jokingly.

"I'll try not to explode," Taylor's eyes were flat as she inhales another drag of her cigarette, staring up at the buildings, "It's a nice place... Hopefully the people here aren't too annoying...."

"That's the spirit." Maxx's dark brown eyes flicker with amusement and she gives a sarcastic nod, a micro-sneer flashes across her face before taking another drag and flicking the ashes. Thoughts began fluttering in her head and Max sits down next to her, lighting his own cigarette, his elbows relax casually on his bent knees and he turns his head towards Taylor, "Look, can you at least TRY to smile?"

Taylor gives a half-ass smile and Max drops his head for a moment, shaking it, a small stifled laugh coming through his lips as he took another drag. Taylor stares quietly down the campus, her eyes flickering in the light.

Max taps her gently on the shoulder and she turns toward him slowly, pushing her hair out of the way.

"Everything's going to be really great, Taylor... Just, try not to kill anyone..." The playful tone to his voice made her smile and she nodded.

Max stood up, grabbing his bags and he takes his way towards the orientation while Taylor sat behind on the bench, finishing her cigarette.

[cont of Max...]

Max


Max walked inside where the Orientation was going on and stood up behind a girl with long, blonde hair.

"Oho, does Ms Juliet have a Romeo?" Max overhead the conversation ahead of him and couldn't help but try to cover up his laugh, he could tell by t he girl's body language she totally wasn't into people much. Kind of like Taylor, Max smirked silently and waited.

Jo walked through the entrance of the gym. She looked down at the pamphlet in her hand. She had already been attending Flagler for a year now, but a classmate mistook her for a freshman and gave her the paper anyway. She had nothing better to do at the moment and decided she would go just scope out the newbies. Her previous roommate had also graduated and she would be getting a new roommate this year, so it couldn't hurt to figure out who she would be sharing space with.

In the corner was a table with doughnuts and beverages. Her stomach gave a small rumble and she made a B-line for the goodies. She grabbed a chocolate doughnut from the box and chewed it slowly as she wandered through the booths. She already knew of all the clubs they had to offer, though none of them held much interest for her.

After she had finished her doughnut, she decided she should find out who her roommate was. She wiped the rest of the glaze off on her jeans and walked up to the booth. The pleasantly plump lady smiled "Hello," Jo gave a small smile back. "Hi, I just wanted to find out who my new roommate would be this year, please." The lady nodded. "Certainly, may I have your name?" Jo had missed that last part having been distracted my a handsome guy and his red-headed companion. "Sorry...right..my name. Josephina Martinez." The lady smiled and handed over the sheet of paper with her roommate assignment on it. Jo took it and retreated back outside.

The white sheet read "Taylor Murray". "I suppose that's a pretty name. she thought as she sat on a bench next to a girl who was smoking.





Nate bounded off the shuttle, arriving back at Flagler after a nice summer vacation. It felt good to see his family, but he felt he belonged here rather than back in Tennessee. He could see new students walking around the campus, mingling together. It was Orientation Day and many of the new students seemed lost. He made his way to his dorm room to drop off his luggage. He could see that he would be gaining a new roommate this year from the luggage that had been dropped off on the opposite bed.

He was a little too eager to meet his roommate. He knew the booth would be set up in the gym for the new students and decided that was where he needed to go. He pulled his shoulder length hair back into a half-ponytail and exited the room.

He was a fast walker, so it didn't take him long to get to the gym. Many students were outside, smoking or conversing. He nodded to a few of the older ones, recognizing them from his various classes and entered the gymnasium.

He spotted the roommate assignment booth in the very back and made his way there. Upon arrival , he had a short conversation with the attendant, giving her his name, and she giving him the sheet of paper that read "William Phillips" The name was rather unfamiliar. He sat in a corner and scoped out the room, making guesses about his roommates appearances.

Tay


Tay turned to the sound of a smooth voice, and was greeted with a beautiful blonde asking her for a lighter.

"Hey," The blonde haired girl held up her pack of cigarettes and waved them slightly, "Gotta lite? Can't find mine."

Taylor nods, popping her cigarette into her her mouth and taking a drag, "I think I could help you out on that one," She smirks a bit through the cigarette and fumbles through her purse, her hands clasping around her green lighter. She hands it to the girl and tilts her head to the side, flicking the bangs out of her eyes.

"You know, miss, you should smoke--" Taylor gives a small smirk, exhaling a long drag and flicking her ashes, "It's supposedly extremely bad for your health."

Taylor's eyes flickered towards the girl with a flirtatious grin, and nods to the spot next to her, "Pop a squat, blondie," She says.

Another girl came and sat next to Taylor on the other side, and she turns to the girl, raising an eyebrow.

"Party central..." Tay mutters with a small smirk, leaning back and taking the final drag off her cigarette before throwing the butt out.

Juliet had never been more happy in her life to see someone nod. She took the green lighter greedily when it was handed to her, popped a cigarette into her mouth, and happily struck a light before handing it back.

She snorted at the girl's sentence about it being bad for her health and rolled her eyes as she took a long drag. "Trust me, honey, it's the least of my problems."

Even completely taken in by the prospect of the cigarette in her hand that she was enjoying, she still noticed the flirtatious grin on the other girls face. Feeling the corners of her own lips quirk upwards. Especially when she was called blondie.

"Thanks," Juliet said as she took the offered spot, tucking on boot behind her and sliding her other foot out as far as she could, giving her a devil-may-care relaxed look in her seat, one arm lazily thrown over the back of the bench, the other holding her cigarette.

Well, perhaps things wouldn't be that bad this year. At least there appeared to be one girl on campus she could get along with.

Amari laughed as the girl said coffee tasted like shit withouth the sugar "I can't stand anything in my coffee, does all americans put that much sugar in their coffee?" she asked curiously. Finishing her second cup she threw the cup away in the trash that was near her. She watched as the girl took a drink of the sugared coffee, she held back a laugh as the girl said the sugar was too much. "I thought so but hey now you know" the girl then introduced herself as Alexia, but preferred to be called Alex or Lexi "Nice to me you mate, im Amari Jenkins but my mates at home call me AJ or Mari".

The next thing the girl said made her huff a little, she really hated when people assumed shit, it pissed her off "look I wasn't even thinking that so maybe you shouldn't assume that, maybe I was thinking your good looking but now I am not going to tell you what I think, fucking assumptions" she then turned and headed outside. She definately needed a smoke.

She hoped all Americans weren't like that, especially her roommate. As she walked outside she saw three girls sitting together, a couple of them were smoking. She took out a cigarette and put it in her mouth, then took a lighter out of her other pocket she lit the cigarette then walked over to the three girls, leaning against the wall of a building. "Hey you all new?" she asked curiously, her british accent was definately heavy in her voice. She was hoping she could nake a few like minded friends, maybe someone that could help her get some pot. "Im Amari, can call me AJ though" she looked at the girls, taking another puff from her cigarette.

Nate had been leaning comfortably against the wall, taking stock of the more interesting newbies when two of them came up to him. The guy could be considered good-looking, but Nate didn't swing that way. The girl was obviously gorgeous and he had always had a certain fondness for redheads. The guy spoke to him first. "How's your first day going, bro?" Nate gave a smirk and shook his head. "This isn't my first day, this is my second year. I'm just hear to get a good look at the freshman."

The red-head looked around as if she was out of place. Then another girl came up to her and started speaking to her. Nate turned back to the guy. He seemed interesting enough and it seemed like Nate never had enough friends. He hadn't befriended any new people yet and he liked the look of these two. They seemed like really likable people. "Name's Nathaniel, but you can call me Nate" He said and held his hand out for the guy to shake.




Jo had pulled a book from her purse after some time of sitting with the two girls. She hadn't struck up the courage to speak just yet. As she flipped the pages of A Game of Thrones another girl had come outside to smoke. Jo supposed that she had set in the smoker's corner, but it didn't bother her much, she was used to her Papa smoking cigars at home. "Hey, you all new?" The girl asked in a British accent. Jo decided that now was as good a time as any to make herself heard. She put her book away and turned to the girl. "I'm not sure about them, but I am." Jo said. The girl introduced herself as Amari, but said you could call her AJ. "My name's Josephina, but everybody just calls me Jo." She was a bit disappointed that this girl wasn't her roommate. She seemed friendly and Jo liked that about her.

Taylor
"Hey you all new?"

The voice caught her off guard and her eyes flickered over to the girl for a moment, "Im Amari, can call me AJ though." Amari, it was a nice name. Rolled off the tongue.

The voice next to her made her jump, "I'm not sure about them, but I am," the bookworm stated, clearly eager to converse with someone after the silence.

To Taylor? Silence was golden in her book, and nothing would replace it with anything sweeter... Yet, the girl continued to talk.

"My name's Josephina, but everybody just calls me Jo."

Taylor decides to give in, "Taylor...Taylor Murray," She acknowledges AJ with a small smirk and looks at Blondie -- who was just sprawled as far as she could have across the bench, feet stretched out to the point where her body-language screamed, 'Don't give two fucks'.

Taylor lets out a chuckle and notices everything flocking around with a small shudder. Big crowds made her uneasy at most times.




Maxx

Max finished up with orientation and decided to meander outside, lighting up another cigarette as he went. He glided through towards the dorms, stopping outside the entrance to lean against the wall to finish smoking.

He inhaled slowly and then exhaled, soaking in the rays of California sun. His eyes glimmered in the light as he squints against the rays of light streaming through the trees that covered campus.

[[sorry these posts are WAY short but I've been SUPER stressed out latelyyy]]

While Juliet was sitting happily enjoying her cigarette and feeling content with the silence, she noticed another girl join there little group. Short and skinny, she was attractive too. From an outsiders point of view, she looked like someone Juliet could get along with.

What am I going to do with all these attractive people around? She wondered to herself. That was the only trouble Juliet had with being bisexual—too much attractiveness. It split her concentration. She smiled again as she noticed the girl had a cigarette, they were starting their own corner.

The newest addition to their group was leaning against the wall nearest Juliet, and the blonde only looked up through her bangs to see her. She asked if they were new, and sounded distinctively British.

The other girl on their bench was saying something, but Juliet wasn't paying attention. That name sounded familiar. Amari. Seemed like something she would remember even if she had just glanced at it.

She sat up suddenly and leaned over to grab her bag that she'd tossed on the floor. After pulling out the piles of paper the overly happy woman from earlier had given her, she pinpointed the reason why she recognized the name.

“Amari Jenkins?” She asked, holding up her roommate sheet, her long black nails gleaming in the sunlight. She figured it had to be, how many people were walking around with the name Amari?

“I'm Juliet,” she introduced.

Amari inahled as she took another drag from her cigarette, she looked up at the sky then let out a breath of smoke. She was starting to feel calmer having had her coffee and now her smoke, she was definately in a much better mood then about ten minutes ago. "I'm not sure about them, but I am." One of the girls on the bench spoke up, she looked over to see the girl had a book open in her book but soon put it away "My name's Josephina, but everybody just calls me Jo." She gave Jo a smile "my middle name is close to your name Jo, Josephine".

Taking another drag from her cigarette another voice joined the conversation "Taylor...Taylor Murray," She looked over to the dark haired beauty, seeing the smirk she just nodded her head in Taylor's direction. If all the girls were going to be this hott then she was so going to enjoy college. Brushing a strand of her green hair out of her face and behind her hair she looked around as people continued to walk and talk, getting to know one another.

Hearing papers being ruffled around she looked down to the blonde that seemed to be looking for someone, how the girl was dressed made Amari already have taken a liken to the girl. "Amari Jenkins?" the blonde asked after having seemed to find what she was looking for "the one and only" she said with a smirk, finishing off her cigarette, she tossed it in the bin beside her. "Im Juliet".

Amari couldn't help but gri "fuck your my roomie aren't you? Thats awesome mate. Definately going to be an awesome year" she looked the blonde over with her eyes "love your shirt...know of anything fun thats going aeound here? First time in the states and im liking it so far" she said with a flirtatious tone. "I thought I wasn't going to be able to find my roomie till I actually got to my room but lucky me we found each other".

Juliet's own lips quirked into a smirk at Amari's response. Oh yeah, she could tell she was going to like this girl. She pulled in the last drag of her own cigarette as she put her papers back into her bag.

It was very rare that Juliet James ever felt giddy, but so far Amari had struck her as a girl she'd like to know. That put a grin on Juliet's face because, for once, she felt like her roommate would be someone she didn't contemplate murdering. Banging, maybe, but not killing.

Her own grin was the only answer she gave to Amari's question then she looked down at the shirt she was wearing. An old A7x, she'd almost forgotten. "Thanks," she replied.

Amari's tone was flirtatious, and Juliet's wide grin only stayed in place. Not that she was surprised, they were defiantly a group of attractive girls. The two the blonde was currently sandwiched between, however, could give her fantasies that would put a males mind to shame.

"Tell me about it," Juliet agreed with a bit of an exaggerated eyeroll. She had been very worried about the roommate situation and how that would go along, but meeting the girl beforehand and put her at ease.

She tossed her cigarette butt away and sat back, blowing out her last ring of smoke. "I've heard of a few things." Her own flight had landed the Friday before Orientation, she had a friend down a few towns over she'd stayed with. He was a bit crazy, and told her of the best beaches to hit up for parties.

In town she'd heard of a few things going on, tamer things, and she slowly raised her eyes to the green eyed beauty again. "Anything you're interested in specifically?"

"Ass backwards," Juliet muttered under her breath with a chuckle. She was going to have to remember that one. She dragged herself off the bench and grabbed her one bag off the ground. "Yeah, I know where our room is. Found it earlier, I'll show you the way."

She threw up a peace sign for Jo and Taylor, and an extra wink in Taylor's direction. "Thanks for the light. Hit me up sometime."

Then, feeling uncharacteristically nice, she grabbed one of Amari's bags for her and gestured for her to follow. "So, you dj?" Juliet asked as she started the walk back to the main entrance of the college. She liked good music herself, and was one to enjoy parties and smoking just about anything.

As they walked inside towards the elevators, Juliet turned back to their previous conversation. "Nothing like the first day of college," she agreed. "There's a lot going on...I'm sure I don't even know the entirety."
