Hi my name is Elise, I come from the original small town in Texas. My parents
are cattle people, my brothers are all cattle people, I am not cattle people.
My parents were both in there 40’s when I was born, I think in a lot of ways they
thought I didn’t fit in. I am everything my parents are not, I am fair haired and fair
skinned, I have blue eyes and fine features. My parents are both dark, in both
appearance and attitude. They get up with the sun and go to bed with the sun
just as they always have. When I was 8 my parents decided to send me off to
boarding school, I stayed there until I started college, I would come home for the
summer but then I never seemed to fit in, I found it hard to understand why they
hated me. I realize now that they didn’t hate me it had more to do with they didn’t
know how to treat me. My parents had 12 children, I am the only girl. I am a real
girl, I love to get dressed up for any reason, I was a cheerleader and even won a
couple of modeling competitions. When I finished college, I went home, although
it didn’t feel like home, it was just a place that some people I vaguely knew lived.
I stayed at home for a few months, I got a job at the local store and although it
was nice to be busy, it is not what I really wanted. I wanted to be an actress, I
wanted to be famous but when I tried to explain this to my parents they thought I
had lost my mind. They were always reminding me of how much money they had
spent on my education and that I should be doing something that would change
the world with there money. So after working at the store I was able to buy a
cheap car and I packed my little bomb up with all of my worldly possessions and
took off for New York.
I had no plan, nowhere to stay and about $500 in my purse, but that was ok, I
knew I would be ok somehow.
