My sister had a graduation party yesterday
And the fact that she's graduating high school and going to college
is a whole other emotional roller coaster for me.
But I've always been kind of glued to her at parties
we didn't really want to talk to anyone else
and now that shes leaving
I'm really going to have to talk a lot
so lets just say last night I talked a lot
With my mums mums side of the family I talked about the importance
and how big of a deal it is to quit smoking, and congratulated a my ex-aunt Chris on quitting for 2 years
She actually divorced with my uncle, so I have a new aunt
but they're all friends so its kind of cool.
After that she said that I understood more than I should for my age and called me an old soul
They're both kind of fluffy women
I don't know how to describe it, but I hope you get that.
I then talked to the woman next to her, who is my Aunt Andrea currently.
I talked about hair color and how Its interesting that Chris has a reddish mahogany dye in her hair for summer
and I suggested that she get some highlights
and she said that would be awesome
so then they thought I was a cosmetology expert and said I should do makeup and style
According to that I talked to my uncles girlfriend Cynthia about fashion
she is a stylist at Nordstrom, so we chatted about that a while.
So then I talked to my mums friends daughter Jaime
whose kind of a hippie
about how this guy in my family went to Woodstock a while ago
and how he married this Jamaican woman,
but they aren't allowed to come over because my dad picked sides,
and hes divorced and its confusing but..
She also wants to work at pixar so
I talked with her about graphic arts
and about the stupidity of selling a meaningless splash on a paper for lots of money
I also chatted with her about the mystery behind the painting
Las Meninas (Which means like ladies in waiting) by Diego Velazquez and all about the significance
of the focal point in the painting and vanishing point
And a whole bunch of other things about that painting that are very intriguing to me
I also let her know that my favorite paintings in the world would either be
"The Birth of Venus" or "The Death of Socrates" which is quite Ironic
and how I love all impressionist art.
So then she said I should be an art historian
I then saw my uncle on my Dads side
and he watched me sing a few weeks ago and he loved it
and was telling everyone i'm a musician...
then I talked to my dads dads side
about our family history a
and about my favorite type of dogs with my Dads cousins sons veterinarian girlfriend
she said I should be a vet
then I talked about the importance of justice and helping people
and the art of rhetoric while being a lawyer and persuasive speech,
to my dads cousins son
he said I should be a lawyer
my mums friend brought a ton of deviled eggs
I talked with her about how difficult they are to make
and that its such a tedious process, and I made the lemonade at the party
as well as the brownies with homemade caramel on them
so she said I should be a chef
and then my dad Bragged to his friends about how I write poetry on this site and have followers
so now i'm a poet and a writer
And you're probably completely bored with this poem.
which isn't much of a poem,
and I talked to even more people at the party
So now I'm an old soul, a cosmetology expert, an art historian, a musician, a vet, a lawyer, a chef, and a writer.
Lets just say that i'm a good conversationalist.
I'm not really totally interested in all of those things, I just can talk about them.
Though, if I had to choose one, I'd be a musician. Thats' what I want to do
