I am from heat and flat lands
from bales of hay and picket fences
I am from the state flower of bluebonnets
bell-like petals so tall and tinder that it leans to one side
I’m from eating tamales on Christmas Eve and beautifully arched eyebrows
form Dominguez and Garcia
I’m from the competitive gene and sore losers
From “calm down hulk” and “make good choice”
I’m from chihuahua
bean tamales and strawberry jello cake
From my grandpa punching a cow in the nose when it tried to ram into him.
The bruised hip of my grandpa when Texas got snow for the first time and she slipped down the stairs
The bulletin board I have in my college house where my family photos and high school memories are alive
I am from those memory’s on the bulletin board that builds me up when college breaks me down.
I liked Microsoft sway because it was very easy to work with even without a demo I feel like anyone could get the hang of it and figure it out by themselves. It also helps that we do not have to find our own pictures if we did not want to which makes life a lot easier as well.
