Joy and rapture, I've been told I'm getting paraded in front of the whole family again this year cause they haven't seen me in at least a year. I like my grandmother, but my mothers sisters and their kids I could for the most part happily set fire to, they are the most xenophobic, narrowminded, vanilla group of people I have to socialise with and can't be openly rude to.

As usual they delight in comparing their kids lives to mine, and talling points according to their standards, which makes me a failure, now i don't really give a hoot what they think, but I can see it hurting my mum as her sisters thinks he's done a bad job of bringing me up cause I'm not like their kids.

I'm not married with at least one screaming brat, and I'm over 25 - I must be a dud. Afterall, their kids are either married with kids, engaged (at 19 years old ffs!) or have ambitions to follow that path, its only my brother and I who are different. He lives with his girlfriend and the pressure they are under to get married because the rest of the family thinks they should is appauling.

And I'm a failure, this is because:
I moved away from home at 18
To go to university (no one else in familiy has anything more than gcse's)
Where I stayed for 4 long years
And I didn't study a nice 'girls' subject like I should have done
I recived an MSc in mathematics
Then I didn't go back home, I moved in with a guy who owned a very large motorcycle, and rode pillion on it.
Now I have my own career, rather than a 'nice little job'
I have my own house which I own and I don't share.
& I'm seeing a goth/industrial/ebm DJ.

See, I'm a failure - yeah right, I've done more with my life that all of them put together so far, and this year is bite back year, they say something, I say something back.

I'm possibly saying this because it's 1 AM and I've just spent a tiring day with my own extended family, but I say go for it. Don't let yourself be a doormat for them to just trample all over. You don't need or deserve that. Let them know that their backwards philosophies are not yours, and that you are successful in your own eyes (and well, in the eyes of most other people too) and happy, and that's all that should matter to them.

I love you in a way that is mystical and eternal and illegal in 20 states.

Ooh I love it when I get to deal with my family like that. Not that they're so judgemental, its just fun to be cheeky and point out their deficiencies as well. You go girl!

When, will I, will I be famous?

Bite back. It's 3:45pm here, and I'm not at all tired/drunk. I hate it when people say you've failed when all you've done is fail to conform to their ideas for you.
I hate people like that full stop *getting indignant*

It's not so bad being trendy, everyone who looks like me is my friend...
