    Thanksgiving Dinner From Hell!

    Sometimes. . .

    I love spending time with my family, but I hate big family get together. In a family get-together, especially mine, the number of guests can reach to about a 100. Traditionally, our celebration lasts for two days. Two freaking days of eating, stupid games, awkward conversations...

    My father & his wife really like to have guests

    over at their house, either with my brothers, or her children, or her friends or family members. Before I moved out of their house, I was always forced to attend their get-togethers, and I have always hated them. I am an extremely private person. I get anxiety when I am in...

    Hate..hate...hate It

    Before I actually loved family get togethers because I got along with my family. It was so much fun.  But now, my cousins and I are so different. I don't even want to be by them. To add, my family has little feuds going on. It just adds to the tension.  Family...

    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...

    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...
