RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I was sent away to a strict, all girls boarding school at the age of 12 years as my family lived in a remote town in country Australia, where there was no nigh school. I spent my teen years conforming, I was the smart girl at school with top grades, everyone expected me to go on to great things, and I was kind-of ignored as being 'good' and being ok, I didn't need extra attention. I was thought of being so 'good' that I was voted in as the chapel prefect, and carried a cross in church every Sunday, just because of my reputation. But I'm not a good girl, I am smart, I like to conform, but I'd prefer just to be 'myself'. I am now trying to allow our daughter to be her own person.
