viva la vie boheme


sometimes, i wonder how at all i turned out like i did. my dad is a physicist with aspergers syndrome, and my mom is absorbed in keeping up with the joneses and appearances. 20120714-214058.jpg

enter me, who wears off-beat clothing, has wildly different opinions on some political/religious things, and who surrounds herself in culture. my parents did everything they could do discourage it, but maybe that only encouraged it.

i get that they worry. the fact of the matter is is that i might be rather poor living in new york. i’m going to have friends they don’t approve of, and dress in clothes they don’t think matches. and maybe mom is right; maybe i do this as a manic thing.

they aren’t going to understand why i’m happy, either. and i won’t be able to explain. but hopefully they will come to see that as long as i am, that’s what matters.
