I Am The Only One........

i am the oldest of 6 and only one is still under the age of 18. my bio dad only finished the 8th grade. my mom barely finished high school. me, 1 brother, and a sister have graduated high school. i am the only one that's over 18 in my family that has a college degree (i have 3 and a certificate to be exact), and the only one that has no children. out of the 4 of us children that are over 21, i'm the only one that has not been to jail or prison. i'm the only one in my family with less than 10 different sexual partners. i'm the only that can play a musical instrument. i am the tallest person in my family. i am the only one that has piercings. i am the only one that owns a house - technically my partner does and we are making mortgage payments; the rest of my family is either paying rent somewhere or locked up. i am the only one with pets. i am the only one in my family that owns a car. i am the only one with more that 1 allergy. my mom is allergic to bee stings and my bio dad is allergic to pork, but i have too many allergies to too many things to even begin to list. i am the only one that is an activist for human rights and help to make changes to the state and federal laws. i am the only one to have worked in presidential campaigns. i am the only one that needs to wear corrective lenses. i am the only one to have a CDL. i am the only one to have played sports in school. i am the only one to have done martial arts training. i am the only gender queer in my family.

i know there are more things, but i cannot think of all of them right now. other than looking like my family, i definitely do not fit in with my family.

Some awareness sure propelled you far from that tree. (metaphorically)

Family is family regardless, good to know you still have em.

I'm the youngest of 8. Strange world huh
