July: Do You Feel Like a Chameleon?













Ally says, "Cammie has always seen herself as a 'chameleon.' Have you ever felt that way?"

Sometimes. Sometimes I feel like I can become who ever I want to be if it serves my purpose...kinda creepy. But You know what I mean...it's like acting. I can blend right in. :}

Always. I'm always feeling like I'm alone. No one understands an dno one ever sees me. I can be standing right there and thy could talk about me not even seeing me....Or look for me an dwalk right by not seeing me. It really makes me sad...... Then when I read theses books I like being an outsider. It makes me feel like maybe I was ment for something big.......

On set or on stage, I am a chameleon, and I'm happy that I can portray a wide range of characters.

In real life, I pride myself on always BEING myself, no matter where I am or who is there with me.

I definitely see Cammie like that in the earlier books, but less in the later books, though it is still prevalent.
Anyways, sometimes I do. I usually try to be myself, but it doesn't always work.

Absolutely, Kasi! Hey, Silence! Way to try, Bibliogirl.

I think we all have to play different roles in society at different times. You can be true to yourself while acting accordingly, right? The key is keep your voice in those situations. Not turn into the others around you, despite differences.

One becomes a chameleon in order to survive. This is especially intense when you're a teen and the rule is blend in or perish.
Later, it gets easier to be a blue lizard in a sea of green ones.

Totally. i have plain brown hair, and plain brown eyes, and if i don't wear anything flashy, people don't give me a 2nd look. but i don't mind :)

I always feel like a chameleon because, it seems to me, like I'm a slightly different version of myself depending on who I'm with and where I am. Part of me worries that makes me wishy-washy. Part of me is proud that I'm just...adaptable!

I feel like I'm very adaptable, but not a chameleon in the sense of being a wallflower...but I can shift into very different scenarios and groups of people pretty well.
