I’m from living my life through video games Listening to music to drown the bellowing voice of my father Sleeping through my life
I am from trees for climbing Horses for riding Dogs to love The oak and maple trees in the front of The house that I’ve grown up in
I am from twice baked potatoes and sweets my mother bakes I’ve come from the hard workers of Iowa People who hide their emotions at all costs to not show softness
The “keep to yourself” to “go socialize” and “make friends” “watch your mouth” and “don’t be so loud” “get off your computer” or “don't be on your phone”
Staying up every Sunday night for the new Rick and Morty episode Watching any new cult Netflix shows Waiting for season three of Stranger Things Time between filled with Youtube
In my room Bob the traffic cone that has more of a story than me a book filled with drawings A dresser filled with books and memories A computer full of video games A part of me people don’t know
From the pizza and balloons on Valentine’s Day The chocolate macaroons and puppy chow around Christmas Turkey noodle soup after Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner All the potatoes I can eat in a night when they are made.
Most importantly I come from San Diego, California and Illinois Born and raised Parents Traveling with my mother and siblings Having sand between my toes Loving the life I live and every moment of it.
