Tribe of the world

Lately in my English class we have been reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, and at one part, the main character lists all the "Tribes" he's a part of. My teacher made us list ours and I found it really inspiring. This is what I wrote:

I belong to the tribe of the RPers.
and the Speechies
and the Thespians
and the Teenagers
and the Broken Hearts
and the Bloggers
and the Photographers
and the Daughters
and the Sisters
and the Alaskans
and the Oregonians
and the Senators 
and the Writers
and the Shoppers
and the Readers
and the Tank Top Wearers
and the Babysitters
and the Drama Haters
and the Sex And The City Lovers
and the Carrie Worshipers
and the World.

What tribes do you belong to?

My Theory of Love

“I have felt it and I have lived it, now it leaves me here. Love is the ultimate pain and joy, without it you die, with it you perish” -Christopher S. Drew

Love is definitely not something we, can live without. Well, that’s my opinion at least. Without your friends or your family, what would become of you? I speak from experience like many before me when I saw love really is a roller-coaster ride; taking you up and down and off into a million different directions. But when the ride stops, you never want to get off.

Loving and Liking people are both important to us, but in their own ways. Could there even be love without like? In most cases, liking someone often leads to loving them. They say best friends make the best lovers; I would agree to an extent. Sure, couples should share common interests, but they shouldn’t have to like ALL the same things. Differences make us unique. Liking different things makes you more open to talking about new things and stops the relationship from growing dry and boring. What I’m trying to say, is that being different opens you up to liking more/different people, which can always lead to love.

“Sometimes Love isn’t fireworks...sometimes love just comes softly” -Sarah Grahm (Love Comes Softly)

I’ll admit, I do believe in love at first sight, but I also believe that’s not often the case. Sometimes, love sprouts up when you don’t realize it and blooms slowly until you don’t even know when it happened. The movie Love Comes Softly is an example of this theory because it’s about a woman who looses her husband and has no choice but to marry a man to survive. In the end, she realizes she has fallen in love with him through the little things that happen that you would never think could lead to love. In my opinion, that’s how you know Love is real. When it’s not forced, but, when it just grows.

Love is a word which is hard to define. Everyone has their own idea of what love is and means and even feels like. Love feels different for each and every person you feel it for; each person gets their own special feeling. For example; you may love your mom in a different ways then you love your romantic partner, but that’s not only how I mean it. Some people say, “I know I love him, this is how it felt the last time.” In my Theory of Love, if this is the case, then it’s not love you feel. I feel I personally cannot define love because each person you fall into true love with will have a different definition, a different feeling, which you’ve never felt before.

Love is a terribly great thing which comes and goes into and out of our lives whenever it chooses too. At times, we may hate it, but even as we hate it, we’re craving it. Love may end up hurting: the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one. However, as long as we have people we love and who love us, we can always make it through.

“Baby you’re not alone, because you’re here with me. And nothings ever going to bring us down, because nothing can keep me from loving you and you know it’s true. It don’t matter what’ll come to be, you know our love is all we need, to make it through” -Darren Kriss (AVPM Starkid Productions)
