Who am I?
That's simple, I'm Blaine Devon Anderson.
He looks at the words that he's written for his creative writing class and Blaine can't help but feel that there's something false about those words. He wants to cross them off and write something different, something that rings just a little bit more true. But the undeniable fact is that he is Blaine Devon Anderson.
He can't really change that. Then again maybe the falsehood is in the words: that's simple. If he sticks to Kurt's definition of who he is, then yes it is simple. He's 100% gay, talented when it comes to singing and he's someone who believes in true love at first sight. But he's not really that person (and even if he was, would Kurt really care anymore?)
Blaine bites his lower lip as he tries to push away the resentment about how easy it was for Kurt to move in New York. Instead he tries to focus on who he is. He's almost eighteen, on the verge of graduation and he's just now starting to question who he is. He just realized in a class at 11:40am on a grey and dull Wednesday that he doesn't want to be the person that Kurt, his parents or even Cooper either want or believe him to be.
He's so much more than that narrowly defined boy. He'd much rather be the boy that Rachel saw or the one that Sebastian was wildly interested in last year. The only problem is he knows that Rachel's and Sebastian's perception of him are just as narrows as the other perception of him. Blaine's not sure who he wants to be, he just wants to be someone different.
Who am I?
I'm Blaine Devon Anderson. And I'm in the process of finding out who that is exactly.
He's still not happy with the answer but it's all that he has. For the next twenty minutes, he scribbles something about journeys and the associated metaphors about self-discovery. None of it really rings true for him but at the very least he'll pass the assignment.
