Understanding Laura

I am a crunchy oddball with too many ideas and too little time. Do you get me now?

Sister Power!

I drove to Tooele today to visit my family. It's about a 45 minute drive. I love seeing my family, but sometimes that drive makes me SO tired. Especially since a good portion of that drive goes right through un-developed desert land.

My little sister (right) is being a typical teen. I actually headed out there to lend my mom moral support. It appears I am the only person in Tara's life that she doesn't lash out at. Sister bond? Who knows. She's being pretty mean to our mom and mean to one guy that really had an interest in her well-being. He even encouraged her to go back to school. And she listened to him!

She broke up with this awesome guy because "He was too clingy." When, in all reality, what it came down to was that she was scared of how real it was.

Most of her past relationships were only skin deep. Once either she or the guy she was with had had their fill, the relationship ended. Usually with one stepping out on the other.

This guy truly cared about her and she interpreted that as being clingy.

Poor guy. He never stood a chance.

I just hope this stuff is all temporary. Like her fetish with Britney Spears.

I'm thinking of my little sis because I got my navel pierced today. I've always been jelaous of Tara's ability to throw caution to the wind. I didn't do anything as drastic or as permanent as I think Tara would were she her own guardian, but I made my own bold move. It was empowering!

And I love my piercing! The beauty of it is that if I grow out of this "I'm me, take it or leave it" phase, all I have to do is take out the jewelry and *presto change-o* I'm back to normal.

And if I happen to love it until I die, yay for me. That's fifty bucks well spent.
