Five Random Facts

From puberty through my late teenage years I was a painfully shy, gawky girl who had a hard time fitting in. I had three really close friends, two of which where gay (which is a mortal sin here in Texas, sometimes punishable by death) consequently I was known as the schools biggest ‘fag-hag’ and was teased mercilessly for it.

I was the nerdy/artsy girl who never spoke a word during class and got good grades but spent most of the class time doodling. However I failed 9th grade art because I did not want to do a major Paper-Mache project the way my art teacher instructed me too. I am a stubborn Taurus.

I am really clumsy. I have broken my ankle twice, once in front a school bus full of naughty children who were pointing and laughing at me as I fell. I will probably kill myself if I ever manage to wear high heels for an extended period of time.

I enjoy reading, watching or hearing scary stories but I am a big wuss. Most of the time I have to sleep with a nightlight on just to get a descent night sleep.


I am the first member of my immediate family to go to college. Amongst my extended family I am the youngest person to have a college degree. I am currently getting my Bachelors in psychology but I have a minor (Associates) in Social Work. However this is a sore spot for some members of my family. They see me as a little miss know-it-all who thinks she is too good for her family and on certain occasions I am.

I recently went to a high school reunion and it's funny that the nerds seemed to be happier and younger looking than all the popular types. Karma in action maybe? (I was a big art nerd myself)

Popularity is all just an illusion that doesn't really matter in the real world. Too bad high-school kids don't get it.

I was part of the drama-geek clique.

Joy you are pretty cool yourself.

Prunella I believe in karma but sometimes it just seems to take its sweet ass time.

Mishy I was in drama as well. However I sucked so bad that I was always given the part of the death mute girl who only had one scene.

What I've discovered in my lifetime, are the nerdy kids are the ones that had time to develop their brains and become interesting. On the other hand, the popular ones, are the ones that are struggling in minimum wage jobs, stuck with 6 kids, or worse yet, drug addicted or alcoholic because life didn't pan out for them after high school.

From your 5 random facts, I've gathered that you are sensitive and compassionate, deep and introspective, learn from your mistakes, contradictingly complex, and successful!

aw...pixie, if i knew you in high school, we would have hung out. my sister was a cheerleader all through school, but i hung out with the stoners. she used to make fun of me because i was an artist. things looked up for me when they invented computers. now my sis has three kids and no life. haha

PixieGaf said...

Aww thanks guys!

Kookla your right on with your assesment of me especially the contractingly complex part!

PK I would have totally hung out with you in high school I loved to get stoned it relieved my anxieties. I still do it ocassionally. Oh and our sisters should meet. My older sister was Miss Popularity and she was pretty smart to boot. It was so hard for me to have her as a siter because it seemed like everything I could do she did better. Except she did have one downfall she was a little ho who squandered a perfectly good scholarship in order to live with a guy who ended up getting her pregnant and bailed once she had the baby. She now has three kids with three different guys and has no life! Sometimes I wonder why it all went so wrong for her. But now I relish the freedom I have and when I look back to high school years I would not have it any other way it made me the person I am today.

Everybody loves Pix-NOW!

aw Pix, come into my arms. We would have liked each other. I was a very quiet, invisible, 20-pounds overweight, smart kid. I despised most of my classmates for their years of abuse. But somehow I still felt I was a better person than them. I thank God for that belief, it sustained me. I flew away from that small town as soon as I could. Most of them are still there, in loserville.

prettykitty said...

how true, pix. how very true. my sister squandered away her education and she was only a unit shy of graduating pre-med. now? some dead end job barely making ends meet. i was really lucky because my parents never did anything for me. i was independent and took care of myself.
