Well, I go by Rachel.
I was born in the state of Utah - Ogden if you want to be specific. People tend to hate on the state or ignore it completely, but if you can get past the Mormon of it, it’s really beautiful there.
I grew up there until I was 8; from there I moved to Minnesota in ‘02 with my family. My mom’s motive was to be closer to her family, but it turns out they were a bunch of assholes for the most part, so that was a bust. Still, I don’t resent her decision. I know growing up in Minnesota really helped shape who I am. It was a blessing to be able to grow up in an environment that was so open and accepting, and I was able to come into my own without fear of any kind of oppression. And I met some of the most amazing people in the world there. I miss them always, and I miss it there, but there will always be a place in my heart for the midwest.
I graduated high school in June 2012, and less than a week after the ceremony I hitched it back to Utah for the summer of 2012. I was in a position in my life where I had to make a drastic change. Turns out, Utah - as much as I can enjoy its beauty - is not the place for me to live. I’m a pansexual athiest liberal - let’s just say I don’t quite mesh with the demographic. As of now, I don’t plan on moving back there, but I’ll never say never - I don’t know what my plans are after this school year.
Speaking of school, that brings us to what’s going on in my life right now - college. I’m a student at New York University, however this year - my freshman year - I’m studying abroad in London! That’s right, a whole 9 months in Europe! I still have a hard time grasping that I’m actually living in the UK, but I’m absolutely in love with London, and I’ve been having the time of my life.
As far as my academic agenda, I’m taking part in NYU’s Liberal Studies program. Overall, I want to major in biology, and possibly minor in neuroscience. My ultimate career objective is to become a surgeon, preferably with a specialty in neurology. But who knows, that could all change at any moment, so we’ll see how things go.
I have a big, dysfunctional family. I hate it and I love it.
I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers, though none of them are “full” siblings. But I don’t believe in shitty titles like “half” or “step”. They’re my brothers and sisters, plain and simple. They know how to piss me off, as any good sibling does, but I’d be nothing without them. They’re a huge support system for me, and I’m glad to have had them in my life.
I’ve lived in the household of a single mom all my life. She gives me my strength and inspiration. She gets a lot of grief from her family and my siblings, but I will stand by her 100%, even if she does like to push my buttons. She’s one of my best friends, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I miss her the most since I moved away.
Speaking of friends, they can’t go without mention.
As far as my Minnesota friends go, my bestie would be Josh, for sure. We’re brilliantly obnoxious whenever we’re together, and I love every minute of it. He’s my brain twin and sassy gay friend.
If I had the patience, I’d write a paragraph for all of my amazing friends I had the pleasure of knowing through high school that I’m close to and that I miss dearly, but I’ll just say that I couldn’t survive without Abyan, Alicja, Angie, Maddy, Sarah, Sara, & Megan. Them plus the whole big group we all were apart of; they were my family for a year. I love them dearly, and I’m having a little separation anxiety. But that’s what skype is for, right? :P
Since I’ve been in London, I’ve also met some fantastic people! Basically, Catherine, Jenna, and Madison are my life support and the best flatmates/roomies in the world. They get all my weird quirks and accept every bit of it! We’re deliciously geeky and strange together, and I love it. They’re my besties here for sure! :)
If we’re talking Tumblr, there’s a group I can’t go without mentioning, and that’s my Ohana. But they have their own page, so if you want to follow these quality people, go here (I’ma be straight up honest, I think all of the URLs on that page aren’t updated at the moment, so SORRY. I’ll get to it… Eventually).
That’s all I can think of for now, if you have questions, feel free to message me and ask :)
