    Forced Bonding

    My grandma yells at me

    for using cereal bowls for cereal, opening my own cereal at breakfast. She has threatened to send me to foster care which at this point would rather be at foster care then with them.

    Oh, Please Make It Stop.....

    Uuuugh, I probably sound like a douche when I say this.. I wish I didn't have these 'get-togethers'. Honestly, I'd rather be watching TV at home. But no; every few weeks I have to have dinner with scores of people I'd rather not see, and listen to how their lives are so...
