This is one of the first times I went up there and didn't feel like a failure because I didn't bring my boyfriend and I'm not married.
I graduated. With a computer science degree. I have a job. Although, most of them still assume I live with my parents. That's fine.
The only bad part is I can't sit back and let them talk deragatively about other people. They say they aren't prejudice, but they still use the words that create a culture of intolerance and "us and them". So, I'm forced to make an issue out of it. And then everything is tense and icky. Why can't they just be decent.
