Little Big Girl

It's my turn to challenge you at Journaling Junkie! For this week, my challenge is to use an oxymoron for a title. According to Wikipedia:

An oxymoron (plural oxymorons or, more rarely, oxymora) is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms. Oxymoron is a loanword from Greek oxy ("sharp" or "pointed") and moros ("dull"). Thus the word oxymoron is itself an oxymoron. Oxymorons are a proper subset of the expressions called contradictions in terms. What distinguishes oxymorons from other paradoxes and contradictions is that they are used intentionally, for rhetorical effect, and the contradiction is only apparent, as the combination of terms provides a novel expression of some concept, such as "cruel to be kind" or "team of mavericks".

For my layout, I scrapped how Alyssa doesn't see herself as a baby anymore. :D Do join in the fun! Email your submissions to eyeore@telkomosa.net or leave a comment with a link to your URL at the JJ blogsite on or before the 14th of March 2009. :D

Little Big Girl
Title: Little Big Girl

Materials: Studio Azul October Kit

Journaling:
Somehow, you believe that you're one of us --- the "big" people.
You don't see yourself as a baby or a toddler.
You babble excessively, although we can't understand you.
You insist on eating chocolates, ice cream and chips.
You write and colour with the big girls.
And you watch Disney Channel even if it's Hannah Montana or the Wizards of Waverly Place (as if you understand it!)
You consider yourself a big girl even if you're barely 3 feet tall.
