Hello and welcome!
Today is Thanksgiving, a day where we are supposed to appreciate all that we are given in life. Instead of this gracious warmth that we are supposed to enjoy, I am sitting in the corner of a house full of people that I don’t know.
My grandma died in June of last year and she always hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas when I was at my dad’s. So the last two years my cousin has hosted at her house. With her whole baby daddy’s family. So now my brother Tobias and I are sitting in the corner all awkward surrounded by a bunch of sketchy people that are all drunk, high, or both that my dad and paternal stepfamily know, but we don’t.
I just feel left out and that’s a really shitty thing to feel on a day that has always meant being around family for me. I’m compensating by writing my college essays and updating my blog to try and vent my sadness. Happy Thanksgiving.
