I relate to this on so many levels

  1. My oldest is a girl. She will be 15 this january and in a couple weeks starting her first year of high school. I have 3 daughters and soon to be 3 sons.. my youngest boy will be born this oct or nov… when he decides to make his appearance. they alternate in birth.. girl, boy, girl, boy, etc.. πŸ™‚

      1. So you are a dragon too (chinese astrology) so is my oldest. And either a libra or a scorpio.. my 6 year old daughters bday is also in oct.. she’s a libra and very much like her sign. I don’t swear by the signs but they are fun to look in to! Happy almost birthday! Try not to stress too much on your exams. Life has to be fun and happy as well or what is the point! (But do try your best πŸ˜‰ )

  2. I moved around a lot from school to school when I was a kid.. I think I went to about 12 schools in all my school years, kindergarten through 12th grade. Some of that was moving towns or states, some of it was the school I was zoned in closed down and they shifted us kids around every year to schools that had more space. I had a really hard time.. I was always super shy but then when I’d get to know someone I was always the goofy weirdo in class.. so I had friends but was more the type to have 1 or 2 good friends rather than be the popular kid in school. My older brother was opposite.. he was always super popular so I ended up knowing a lot of people because of him.. it got harder in high school. I think it would have been easier if I was involved in something like sports or drama (but I totally sucked at both) or dance or something.. But I’ve always been a book person.. so I was alone a lot.. and moving and being shy made it really hard to meet new people.. we moved again to a new place when I was 15 and I remember feeling so messed up and completely alone all the time.. I hated my life so bad and wanted to die or disappear every day.. one night, stupidly, I tried to take a whole bunch of medicine in the cabinet but just succeeded in making myself super sick for a couple days.. I was 17.. I always felt so utterly alone even when I was surrounded by people.. I had a big family but I never felt like I could really talk to or confide in anyone.. I felt really lost. life was hard emotionally until my early to mid 20’s … it’s still isn’t easy all the time.. and I’m almost 35. (it feels really weird saying 35 because I totally feel like the same person when I was 17 or even 10) even now I feel like there should be a lot more to everything than what there is.. I have always felt a disconnect with everything but it seems to feel better when I try to be spiritual.. not religious really but just seek inner truth.. a connection with our spirit rather than seek something from other people.. a book I found when I was around 20 right after my 1st daughter was born is called The Celestine Prophecy. for me it was amazing on many different levels.. This comment is super long. and I’m not trying to be a weirdo.. but I just wanted you to know that things get better, though there will always be rough times even when we are fully grown and “adults”.

    1. I’m sooo terribly sorry for replying to this so late. I just saw it. I haven’t really ever moved or anything but I understand where you’re coming from, I too sometimes have problem mingling with people instantly. And, if it helps, I really don’t think you’re weird or anything. youre one of my favourite bloggers on here, actually. C:

      1. Thanks πŸ˜‰ I wasn’t trying to write a book, so sorry for that long comment! Just wanted you to know I can relate.. being a teenager (human actually!) can be super hard emotionally at times but everyone who is an adult went through it and we all have our own horror stories or happiness.. even your parents I’m sure! πŸ˜‰ sometimes it’s hardest to talk to the ones we are closest too.. to open up but if you do they may surprise you with what they understand. My oldest is almost 15 and I’m trying to find ways to keep our relationship good and communication open. It’s all new. I can remember going through it all but now I’m on the opposite side being the parent. Life is very weird! πŸ™‚ you seem very intelligent and reading your blog reminds me a lot of when I was younger.. though I think you seem more together academically than I was! πŸ™‚

        1. That put a really big smile on my face. You’re such an incredible person. And knowing you see so much of yourself in me even though no one really even know who I am, how I look and my name etc is sort of a big deal.
