An Introduction

 Who am I? 

 
Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
—MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.


Well for starters, I am human (obviously) and my gender is female. My name is Evita-Marie Marques and I am a full-blown out of proportions nerd. Don't be surprised! Well, according to my shocking large circle of friends. I defy the norms of stereotypically nerds. Well, I'm pretty good looking so that's one. I love socialising so not the typical recluse, I did get bullied but that stopped, I read fashion magazines and also lots of novels. I gossip like normal girls (totes!) and well swoon over good looking men. Yeah, I'm halfway and I'm pretty happy with this situation. So what sets me apart? What makes me Divergent? That would be my insatiable thirst for knowledge and information on everything of anything. I have always had this nagging feeling to know the fundamentals of any possible working. I go to crazy lengths just to satiate that undying thirst and if I don't then the void grows and life would be very difficult for me to live then.  

You're confused aren't you? Well, another thing about me, I often talk in riddles. Its annoying for some people but most of my friends find it hilarious how I link various topics to our random conversations. I don't do it intentionally it just kind of happens. Oops! I got side-tracked. Anyway so about me, I love reading (duh!). For me the perfect day would be just sitting on a really comfortable couch, a nice steamy cup of tea- with spices like Cinnamon added to it and read any book that I want to without any disturbance. Alas! The century we live in, doesn't exactly provide you peace of mind or any sort of peace. You may close your windows to block out the external noises but what about those in your head?


For me knowledge is not about being erudite or being well-learned. I have always used my knowledge as my shield and yes sometimes its my only weapon to protect myself. I am not speaking (writing) metaphorically, I actually mean it. And, over the years this belief of mine has helped me over come every obstacle, my mind now is programmed to act analytically because I am retaining knowledge and applying it in real life. Almost as if I were running a simulation in real time.


The Musical Fox is not just about me blabbering and showcasing my extensive vocabulary. It is an idea woven around a belief that is so blindly followed that our actions almost occur by reflex. The 'Musical' aspect come from the fact that I am a human iTunes play list. I collect a lot of music from German to African to Swedish you name it. I am very meticulous and my music collection is always up to date and in perfect order with music files stored alphabetically in each folder. Its a strange obsession, I don't know maybe its just a passion but being a Cancerian I know for a fact that our emotions are always heightened. No I am not a Vampire, mentioned above Human okay. Its just that I take everything that I do very seriously and intensely. 


However, the greatest flaw in me is that I am emotional. Don't get me wrong it is good to feel rather than to not feel at all but your ability to feel sometimes becomes the spark that lit the bonfire. I am helpful and very protective over the people that I love and for them I would do anything. I am emotionally driven and my parents always tell me that being so emotional on little things will be my Achilles heels.  I however beg to differ the reason being that, the intensity and the adrenaline rush that comes from being so passionate about something is worth taking that leap of faith.


I am after all still very young. The world is waiting for me to take the ultimate test of survival. While most of us at first, sail like a great, mighty old vessel... we all hit that ice berg which causes us to sink like the Titanic. I don't want to be that girl who lived this Earth but didn't leave her mark. I want to remembered maybe not on a large scale but on a small scale. A legacy I hope to leave behind. I fear the oblivion, the emptiness that comes with it. For even though man has walked a thousand years, memories of the great heroes fade away and I cannot afford that to happen now, can I.


I am not egoistic neither am I an over-achiever. I have the potential to do something, to stir up a rebellion to fight so passionately for what I believe in. To make the change you need to take the initiative and start from the bottom because once the dust has settled a change is on the horizon and it waits patiently for someone to embrace it.

Such is the nature of men, that howsoever they may acknowledge many others to be more witty, or more eloquent, or more learned; yet they will hardly believe there be many so wise as themselves.
Thomas Hobbes
