'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?

Someone Reads Me
awarded by trying to stay calm
women doing more
I am avid reader, writer, mom and wife, sister and friend, and hopeful contributor to a better future for children and community. I am also a college student trying to finish an undergraduate in anthropology with emphasis on culture, and peace and conflict studies. I love writing, politics, psychology, sociology, law, humanities and education. I have many interests and wear many hats. I am typical and yet try to be extraordinary. I deal with depression and OCD; and I am healing from an abusive past, an advocate for no silence to a childs cry. I laugh more than I cry, and I write mine and my familly's antics to deal with daily drama. My dichodomy is having much good and gratitude to balance the trauma and theatrics; who I want to become is healthy conflict with who I am today. My family suffers from my mood swings; and in doing for others and loving my family I find my saving grace. I am a woman trying to do more.
