well, this is the first post on this personal blog. all i really want to say is that as much as i like the idea of family togetherness, i really don’t think my family in particular is meant for this sort of thing.
i haven’t seen them in years, and none of my family is really close in the first place. still, it’ll be nice to pretend for a little while that it’s all okay when they really think we’re just a bunch of country bumpkins and that the only redeeming quality is my going to college?? um.
i’m also not looking forward to being asked so many questions about school. “how is it? how are your grades? are you making any friends? how about a boyfriend? how’s that scholarship looking?” just oh my gosh, just the thought makes me want to throw myself off of a cliff.
