Just bought my tickets to the Houston show. I'm seriously SERIOUSLY considering also going to the Tulsa show in November (it's on a Sunday), but I'm not going to order tickets until after Houston and seeing how I feel after the drive. I won't have the weekend to recover after the Tulsa one because it's on a Sunday.

ENOUGH ABOUT HANSON I KNOW LIKE ONLY THREE OF YOU REALLY CARE.

I WISH I HAD SOMETHING MORE INTERESTING TO SAY, did tomnoir ever do those essay prompts? *checks* HE DID. Here is the prompt:

"Are you familiar with your family heritage? - (1) What does it mean to you? - (2) How do you think it is relevant to you as a person? - (3) If you are not familiar with your heritage, talk about what affect you think that has on you and if you'd like to learn more. - (4)"

MY ANSWERS (I FEEL LIKE I AM IN SCHOOL AGAIN):

(1) Not really! I know my great-grandmother on my mom's side is from Poland, and that my biological father is from New York, and that's about it.

(2) It means a lot to me, actually, the pathetic tidbits I have. My family is so disjointed and all over the place that knowing even a little about who they are and where I'm from helps me feel connected to something.

(3) I don't think it's terribly relevant, per say, to me as a person because I am who I am without having any great knowledge of family history. It's important to me, as I do feel somewhat unconnected to any type of background, but I don't think it has any relevance as far as how I live my life.

(4) I would love to learn more about my family history, but at this point, I don't know how much of a connection it would make me feel, which is why I'd be searching for it in the first place. My aunt says that she spent a while looking into it and going through public archives and stuff, and I'm welcome to look at the information she dug up at any time. I know someday I will, because as it stands, the only real family I feel connected to is that on my mom's side, since I never really knew my biological father in the whole fatherly role (I know who he is, we write each other letters, I know quite a bit about him as a person, but not as a family member). But we're all scattered across the country, and rarely get together all at the same time, so it's hard to feel like a "family". On Thanksgivings as a kid, we went to my step dad's family for dinner, and I spent the entire time there KNOWING these people weren't my blood relatives, and I was never terribly fond of any of them. So it's weird and awkward to me that the family I did all the typical "family" stuff with isn't my real family, so to speak. They don't even feel that way. It always felt like having Thanksgiving at a friend's house, or even a friend of a friend's house.

ANYWAY. That got rambly.

I PLAYED THE SIMS THIS WEEKEND, YOU GUYS. A LOT. SOMEDAY I WILL POST A NEW LEGACY UPDATE. IT WILL BE THE BEST DAY EVER.
