OK, so as a disclaimer of some sort. I do love my mom despite our differences. This is just me ranting about one of said differences. This one is just becoming more obvious and is pissing me off more and more as I get older. OK, so my mom has always cared about her looks and reputation. That has been obvious ever since I was little. So, she has tried to have my sister and me to act a certain way. Normal stuff like being modest and behaving properly and shit like that. Looking back at elementary school, it was rather normal except for a few things. My sister and I don't have interest in mainstream stuff all too often (i.e. hanging out on these kinds of sites, and liking to go to conventions and such). Pretty much we grew up to be a couple of awkward nerds (not exactly what she wanted). Starting in about eighth grade, my mother started telling me that I should be wearing makeup and taking more care in how I look. She pretty much wanted me to turn into a prissy kind of girl. She also teased me about my stomach (I was on the heavier side back) by patting it and saying 'suck it in', and would give me a bad time about the bad acne I had back then. I pretty much looked like the girl from princess diaries before her make over. I admit that I wasn't the prettiest damn thing in the world back then but I was only fourteen. I highly doubt that it was completely necessary that I cared back then. She would also tell me that she desperately wished that I did sports and cared about reputation and shit. Since I've entered high school, she has only gotten worse. ( At least she doesn't tease me about my stomach anymore). She now bugs me to wear a skirt to every damn family function or a situation where her workmates will see the two of us. This especially bugs me since my appearance doesn't matter to her at all if I'm not in the aforementioned situations or am not going to see any male peers. She says 'it's inappropriate for a young lady' if I say or do something that is at all unladylike (Being crass, blunt, etc. ) Recently, whenever there're going to 'cute boys', she tells us to wear makeup and be cute etc. This pisses me off because I don't believe that I should get dolled up just to impress some boys that I've never met. It makes no sense. I should doll up when I want/ absolutely need to. I may just being selfish and childish but I still stand by my point.
