OK I had my family christmas party today, not just one side, but both my mom and dads families 3 hours apart. Now I know why I never talk to my family. Not only am I nothing like them, but they all hate each other and put on a show for a few hours once a year and in the event that any relatives die or get married.
So in the event of the holidays, anyone else wonder about their families? I know I look nothing like my family (seriously), nor do I act like them.
Sorry I know it's random
been there, got pictures...
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace...
If you're in a fair fight, your tactics SUCK!
I wonder about my family all the time..
I have cousins I don't even know..... a brother I never see, unless he comes home because he has no money, and my sister..... well she's just crazy like me, so we get along well most of the time, and when we don't holy ****.. watch out. As for my mom and dad, well they're my parents.. Two Grandma's I have left... one I'm really close to, I basically grew up there, other grandma I feel really uncomfortable around. Aunts and Uncles... I don't even really know them either.. Our extended family never gets together, unless there is some major event...wedding, holiday, funeral, graduation.... and even then it's like we're strangers.
haha ok I'm done, didn't mean to go through the whole family tree, but hey.
Same here, not really "family oriented" I guess? Other then my immediate family of bro, mom, dad, never really meet the extended family much. Seen a few aunts, uncles, cousins here and there, but we're not really close.
"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
"Bah. You know I hate poor people."
My immediate family drives me crazy. Not to close to any of my aunts or uncles, they talk to me when they want my help. Most of my cousins are younger than me and annoy me I really hate 2 of them... I also have 2 cousins that I don't mind. One of them is even pretty cool.
All of us in my family are completely different...my two brothers, my sister, and I all look different and have very dissimilar personalities. I have to say that we all get along much better now that we don't live together and can appreciate the one time a year we spend catching up with everyone, but by the end of the week, we start to wear on each other...
My extended family are all too far away to see very often...and that's probably a good thing.
I could give all to Time except - except
What I myself have held. But why declare
The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
And what I would not part with I have kept.
i get along better with my sister now that she moved out
