    Its my grandpa's birthday

    and I'd love to go. He was a good man and always nice to me. I actually live with him so I don't have a choice. It's a rather long and complicated story. The thing that bugs me about it is I know my aunt and uncle will be there. I can't stand them at all. They are completely...

    I hate family reunions, ughh they are so happy and full of joy.  I prefer to be locked in my room that be surrounded by noisy, gossip, liars,  religious obsessed, posers manipulators etc etc.

    I hate when the whole family gathers together

    for a special occasion. I always feel left out and deserted. The talk is always about my sister and her kids and great they are doing. When it comes to me I don't get mentioned except once that I work a lot. Sometimes it can be worse when my mom is around. She always talks...

    Is There Anything Worse Than A Black Sheep?

    I am the black sheep. And it's strange because the only thing that sets me apart is my sexual orientation. I never have and don't do drugs, drink, smoke, had unprotected sex, had children. I'm 23 and I'm happily settled down with my partner of 5 years in about a month. So, we...
