my mom is the bravest broad i know. she taught me to never be ashamed of who i am or where my interests lie. she taught me that black clothes hide pit-stains (we're natural sweaters) and laying flat on your back to zip up your jeans (with pliers) is no big deal. she told me that women can accomplish anything and don't let that fucking man tell you what's what. my mom makes me feel smart, creative, beautiful and strong. i couldn't have asked for a tougher bitch to guide me through my childhood nor a more loving friend to help me through my maturation into women-hood.
thank you, tobey wan-kenobi. you've been a mother to many but a true inspiration to me. i love you, mom.
