- My Family 101*LOL*
- "You know, I love how kids of divorce really have the market cornered on family dysfunction. But let me share with you a typical Thanksgiving at the Turk household: It starts with my mother yelling at my sister for yelling at my grandmother who's yelling at the television screen, which happens to be the microwave. And then my militant brother Jabari - formerly Bob - gives my father attitude for using the word black, even though he's referring to the turkey. Which, by the way, only got burnt because instead of turning the oven off, my bi-polar aunt Leslie tried to shove her head in it. But you know what we do? We kiss... and we hug... and we apologize for all the things we said... 'Cause a month later, we gonna get together and do it again at Christmas!"
Which pretty much sums up every special occasion at my household!!! haha (Chris Turk, Scrubs)
Update 2008! Still living in Blue River BC. Waiting for season to start up in December (totally ill informed as to when we are going to start). So hangin around pretty much. This will be my last season here at the resort & myself & couple of best friends were thinking about moving to Drayton Valley (45 min away from Edmonton).....Why? We know a few friends there & had them scope the place out- job wise. We are going to check it out in the spring prior to making the move. If we dont like it. we're going to move to Kamloops.
Just need a change really. I know most of you are Thinking "MOVE TO TERRACE!!!" ....I would love to when I'm ready. For now, I have to make it on my own & stand on my own two feet & just grow up a little.
I've always been independant & I think that this will be a great opportunity for me to expand career wise.
Hmmmm...missing my family like crazy but I know they're doing alright. Miss seeing Mason every morning & his big smile...he's getting so big. Sometimes thats what I miss most is seeing all the kids grow up & turn into little people!
all in all, I think I dont like going back is because of my crazy childhood. It was great a majority of the time. Just that whenever I go back home, i'm this 12 year old girl again who can't make her own choices, that I have this expectation that i will be the same when i come back. In fact, I've changed sooo much that I don't know what to do.
I wonder why I dont want to move back to Terrace. And I love my family there more then ever & I think it's because I don't want to relive that lifestyle again. All my life, it's been jumbled & i've tried to make sense of it so many times but can't. Growing up with alcoholics telling me what to do. being shuffled around babysitter after babysitter. Family & fostercare. Until my grandparents took us out & let us have a childhood. From there it's been a hard adjustment. Going to church every other day. I loved the church but wasn't sure if it was for me. I believe but somehow I want to rebel and just figure stuff out for myself. sounds dumb but I want to find something that just fits.
Whenever i come back, i'm not me, i'm being who i'm SUPPOSED to be, expected to be.
Something that I've been struggling with for a long long time is depression. Clinically depressed & no one to talk to. I mean how do you talk to your parents about this when I'm so strong. A facad that's slowly eating away at me. I'm depressed and i have no idea how to deal with it. Thinking about the fact that my father died on my 6th birthday, my mother left us, all my siblings are married with children, everyone has this happy life....I'm single & i like it that way. Mainly cuz I want to see more to life then a 9-5 job, kids & husband. Not that it's bad, i'm just scared that I will screw up & not break that generational bondage that I've been through. I'm afraid of screwing up. & im now talking about it with friends & whoever will listen.
I've always liked writing & this is one of the ways to let it out. Sorry if it doesnt make sense but it helps to let this stuff out & not build up....Thanks for listening & I know things will get better! L8r

Well, this is one of the last times i will be able to use the internet for about Three Months....THREE MONTHS!
I leave to Cuba on Tuesday morning with 60 participants, 1/2 Canadian and the other half are Cuban.
I'm Excited, scared, anxious and curious to be in Cuba and be Internetless, phoneless. But Anywho, I'm back in Canada on Feb 25th in Toronto, heading to Terrace, BC on Feb 27th, then head to Blue River on March 9th ish.
But I just want to say Merry Christmas, Happy New year, Happy Valentines Day! and Happy Birthday to everyone having their birthday in the next 3 months!
Anywho, Can't wait to see all you crazies in the New year! Gracias and Adios para ahora!!
Mucho Amor, Maria ^_^

This is my last resort....if this doesn't help or get it across, i mean hey! I tried and that's all that counts!! I know a majority of you know what i'm talkin about too:
To you from me
Well, Most people know that my baby bro is getting married sooner.....without me there.....and quite frankly i'm more sad than mad. I mean, whatever, I'm only his Sister and everything, the sister who has been with him forever, took care of him and drove him places and was there to talk to.
Mainly I'm sad because of all these stories that I've heard from Numerous people, on numerous occasions. And I was pissed off because they are told to me from people who don't know each other and are true. I mean If I was a hard working guy who spent all his money on a cheating Girl who made out with random guys....not once....not twice....probably more then three times....OF COURSE I WOULD STAY I MEAN WHY NOT?
I'm more upset that they won't wait the whole TWO MONTHS......when i get back....I guess BLOOD ISN'T THICKER THEN WATER.....I mean sure our family is difficult, but AT LEAST we're true and are there for each other through thick and thin, no matter what, that's what makes us a Family ! but he can marry someone who TOTALLY HATES ME but treats him right, with respect and honor.....the fact of the matter is, she has to treat him RIGHT.....I can care less if she hates me.....TREAT HIM RIGHT!!!
And a number of people have tried to tell them to wait at least a year or two.....grow up and think things thru, I mean if you cheat on each other, then you SHOULDNT BE TOGETHER!!
Normally I can care less about relationships like this, but this is my brother, my best friend, we talked to each other about EVERYTHING from family to relationships, school to work.....and it seems like hes pushing our family away and feels like hes gone and not a part of my life anymore.
I sit here and wish that dad was here, to talk some sense into him and to make him into the man he is supposed to be, to marry an awesome woman that he deserves, not someone who TELLS him continuously to love her....he should feel it from his heart and not just mechanical love. also to have some fatherly advice and just be there, but I just don't wanna lose another family member! And from the looks of it, he's slowly pushing us away and I can't believe it....I thank God that Grandpa was there to raise us in a way that we have Self Respect and Dignity, and I thank God every day for where we ended up.
im not saying to break up, im sure this is what it sounds like, I think they should talk about stuff, like the fact that they fool around on each other, and not push things aside and hope they will get better....have a relationship thats deeper....below the surface and not lust.
And all in all.....if you don't take this advice......hey at least i tried.....and Bro, I hope you read this and I love you...have a great life if you decide to get married. Just know that your family loves you, but can't if you KEEP PUSHING US AWAY!
Love you with all my heart (as dad used to say) Goodbye!
