    You know that one aunt that tries to force change on you? Well...that's my aunt. It starts off with this: my aunt has a huge influence on the family even though she is not the oldest. How? She uses her religion to control and manipulate her own family. When I was younger, she...

    Can I just say, parents don't know everything.

    The moment you try and defend yourself, they automatically tell you that you don't know anything. It's ridiculous that parents can yell at us, but we can't yell at them. They don't let us explain why we did something, they just assume.

    I feel horrible for saying this,

    but I can't wait for my grandmother to kick the bucket. I have never met anyone as obnoxious, selfish, bitchy, and passive-aggressive in my life.

    I was supposed to go home at 29 July,

    but when my parents said that we're going home at 1 August, I asked why, and they said that the flights are full and my grandparents flight are also full so they booked on 1 August. I'm shocked, I thought they booked the tickets weeks ago, because they literally said in front of...
