Mainstream Defiler


If I were a person living in the middle ages, I would be a woman who knows how to read (at that time, people outside the church did not learn how to read/write) and just so happen to have a black cat, and was fried at the stake.

Since then, I never choose a role that's boring as so called 'mainstream role'.  Although I bought into 'mainstream' a long long time ago, thinking that I'd be an awesome accountant for the big 5 with a super IT husband and a pair of cutey pie kids.  
To have life turned out like what it is now, is like trying to go to London-England, but somehow ended up at London-Canada.

I guess I'm a 'mainstream defiler' and I've been given a very much non-mainstream child.  Call her "special need kid", call her "autistic", call her "naughty", I call her my love.

Everyday I wake up and thank the source for giving me the life that I never expected.  That my world is so different from my peers' and that makes me ready for anything and everything.

I also thought I ws going to get married and alas I'm wayyy behind now lol. I think theres nothing wrong being a mainstream defiler. and I'm sure you are on a great path that lead you to great and wonderful things!!
