Dear family, I will be seeing this coming weekend, I know you will be asking me many questions due to the year that has passed. Many things have changed since we last saw each other, and assuming you do not have me on Facebook (or even those who do) there may be many things you do not know about me. Surely you know the questions you ask are cliche, but they are normal and there is no shame in asking. Because of this, I have taken the time to answer your inquiries before we meet so we can save time and be on the same page.

If you are reading this, know that these are not suppose to come off as rude. These are simply the most blunt way to answer your questions and answer every aspect you may ask out of interest or just to be polite. You might even learn more through this article than asking me in person because I’m being brutally honest, which I would never do in person.

How is College going?

  • It’s going great. I’m at a community college working on a transfer degree, and as of now I have a 3.2 GPA. I go Monday through Thursday and get out at 12:45 Monday and Wednesday, 11:15 Tuesday and Thursday. I am taking biology, english, a media glass, and a tech class. I enjoy college a lot more than high school because I am doing classes I enjoy that have to do with my custom interests. I am working ahead and currently five weeks ahead in my tech class and slowly working ahead in english. Yes, writing research papers are hard but it’s only because of my professor. Writing is fun for me, and comes naturally, but my professor talks a bunch. Eh, what are you gonna do?

What’s your major?

  • Communications. Yes, I know to not get involved with fake news. To be honest I will do my best not to write about politics at all in my field because I want to get involved with entertainment journalism and meet new people and write about stuff I actually enjoy hearing about twenty-four seven.

Have you gotten your license yet?

  • No, I haven’t. I’ve been working very hard in school and my license in on the backburner. When I have time to focus on my license and studying on that, I will. I don’t want to take the test until I am absolutely confident I know the material so I don’t have to take te test again, but as of now I don’t even have time to clean my room because of my school work taking up most of my time and energy. Yes, the car does run and is being driven while I am studying, my dad drives her to work.

What did you name your car?

  • I’m stuck no Lorraine but I haven’t settled.

Any boys in your life?

  • Nope.

Are you dating?

  • I have a girlfriend named Raine. She is older, and she has a job, and I am very happy with her. We have been together since September. No my parents do not know about this and yes I would like to keep it that way, please don’t mention it because I will deny it.

How are your sister and her kids?

  • They’re great. My sister is great and her family is great. Trinity is in girl scouts this year and is sold me girl scout cookies for my never ending cheat days. It's pretty great.

Try Bambi.

  • I will just don’t look at me while I do it it makes me anxious. I’m sure Bambi tastes great.

Have you caught up on The Walking Dead?

  • Yes I have. It is annoying me to no end as of late. It’s not as good as the comics and frankly I think Carl’s death was a mistake but will see how it pans out. Yes, I still love Negan.

It’s not that I don’t know what to say when you ask, it’s that I am shy. On the spot, I don’t do well answering your questions, so here are your answers to all the questions that come up every year. I know it was a big year for me, going off to college and what not and you’re just itching to know more. If I missed anything, feel free to ask now that the basics are out of the way.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

I Ended Up In A Family Group Chat...With All Of My Roommates

It was probably one of the most unexpected things that happened to me.

I know, unbelievable, but hear me out. I didn't expect it at all either. I came to college feeling very reserved and sheltered in. I met my roommates, one who had a boyfriend. They were very very lovey-dovey to the point where it felt like witnessing a drama every passing moment. It was very cute.

Even though I wasn't very expressive myself, my roommates made sure to show me lots of love and give me support and comfort. Slowly, I warmed up to the others and before long we were having face mask nights, Uno challenges, reading and watching creepy trends, truth or dare, ramen nights, scary stories, and so much more. It felt like a family.

One day, when my roommate was being lovey-dovey with her boyfriend, I joked that they were like parents already. That joke then extended on to me and the other roommate being their children and our neighbors to being the grandma and aunt. It was a spontaneous sort of naming system but it came together really well and slowly, everything fell into place. Suddenly it became so established; we developed a family group chat and would occasionally address each other by our family titles. We even started playing into our roles more.

My roommate and her boyfriend started becoming more parental and taking care of my other roommate and I. I started becoming more carefree around my roommates and we would all stay in contact via our Snapchat group named "G.N.O.A.T" at first (greatest neighborhoods of all time) but changed to "family."

It was probably one of the most unexpected things that happened to me at the beginning of my college career but I'm also very grateful that it happened. Because of that, I was able to open up with my roommates and neighbors. I was able to be more honest and slowly feel a deeper kinship with everyone. Before I came to college, I didn't even know if I was going to have good terms with my neighbors but after this experience, I never expected my neighbors and roommates to label me as family, even if it's only a facetious name for now.
