Personal Function/Love, Sex, and Relationships

Formal Analysis


I feel that the Personal Function of Love, Sex, and Relationships describes me best. 

I am very close to my parents.  I had many medical issues as a baby and into childhood, and I still have a couple of things to deal with today.  However, I've never really minded any of this since I've always been able to talk to my parents whenever something would bother me.  I think my health issues as a baby/child is the main reason for the closeness between my parents and I.  Whenever I would have a surgery or go see a doctor, my parents would always be there with me, making sure I was okay.  I grew up knowing my parents loved me.

I have a brother, Jeff, that I am pretty close to, also.  I know he always worried about me when I was little, and he probably still does.  We did fight a lot when we were in our pre-teen/teen years, but now that we're older, we're able to talk to each other like friends.

I also love my friends!  I have to admit that I really don't have too many people that I consider my close friends, but the few that I do are great!  They're always there for me.  I especially love my best friend, Amanda, because I can literally tell her anything--even gross personal stuff.  :P
The relationships and love in my life are very important things to me.  Without my family and friends, I really don't know where I would be right now.


Mother Feeding Child by Mary Cassatt
I've seen a lot of people using this photo, and I've tried looking for another to represent my mom and I, but this one seemed to really be the only one that fit for me.  It reminds me of how my mom always took care of me when I would get sick as a child.  If I had to stay home from school, she would be with me the whole day helping me to get better.


A Father and Daughter Hike by photographer Stacy Gold
I loved this photograph right when I saw it.  It definitely shows the relationship between my dad and I.  I feel like we're the more outgoing ones in the family when it comes to trying new things and having fun.  He is always there for me like in this photo.  I have always definitely been a "daddy's girl".
