Shaping my identity

As I grow up, I look back at pictures and memories of my childhood, and reconcile them with the knowledge I am learning as I mature. I have learned that my mother is not a saint, though she refuses to give up hope that I will view her that way. My nana is a generous woman in need of forgiveness and friendship. My father was living in a world of lies throughout my childhood and has matured into a man I'm proud of.

But most of all, I'm learning that my family is screwed up, which is completely normal.

Every few weeks I learn something new about my family, and I have to incorporate it into who I am. The more I learn about my family, the more I feel I was destined to become the person I am, even though I feel like a disappointment to my mother. She was raised a hippie, as I was, but she has drifted so far from her roots and my nana's teachings that I don't think she knows how to listen to trees anymore. She says 'it was just a phase,' but I think I am who I am because she (at one point in her life) thought it would be important to fill me with feminist, environmentalist values. And now she's disappointed that I don't have a five year plan (which I do, it just changes about every three months).

I have begun to shape my family, which I never knew could or would happen. I have got back in touch with my dad, who is always supportive of me and my life decisions. And I've started hanging out with my nana more. She tells me the truth about our family, the hillbilly, ornery, kind hearted folks I didn't get to grow up around, but turned out like anyway.

And I guess I'm torn in so many directions, and all the while I'm learning how to stay true to myself and take pride in who I am, but it's not always easy.

You know, it's funny, I was

You know, it's funny, I was up most of the night mulling over different-but-related sorts of thoughts. Fearing that no matter what I feel now, something mysterious will happen to me along the line that I've seen happen to the women around me, and I'll be worried about five year plans and kitchen aides instead of my activism, my art, my passions. I think that it must ultimately be a positive experience for your family to see some of their youth reflected in you--or at least, you can make it positive.

Tulip is the national flower of the Netherlands, the Netherlands, also known as “Tulip’s country.” But you do not think the tulip is a native-born in the Netherlands, in fact, it’s hometown in China, originating in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. More than 2000 years ago, the tulip spread to Central Asia area, to the 16th century, when an ambassador stationed in Turkey, only then it is back to Austria Vienna, Austria, in a Dutch court gardener took it back to the Netherlands.

Easy Web Zone recently

Easy Web Zone recently began, with the best intentions, to do some Christmas shopping. One gift for a family member and five more for myself later, I called it a night. One of my purchases that has become my newest obsession is my new Crystal Bib Necklace from Martin + Osa. Sometimes while out shopping I find myself buying a lot of accessories, rather than another outfit. In this fickle economy, occasionally choosing a new accessory is the obvious and cheaper option. It’s those little, pretty, sparkly details that draw me in over and over again.
