- In what ways have you rebelled against your upbringing? I think I need to plead the fifth on this one. Let's just say the ways I rebelled are not typical and leave it at that.
- In what ways have you rebelled against your schooling? For a while, I was not college material by any stretch of the imagination--and the teachers said so. I changed, made to college, and got two degrees. I've rebelled in that I've never diagramed another sentence--EVER.
- In what ways have you rebelled against American culture? American cultures dictates rail thin and sexy is the only way to be a real woman. Sure, I'm losing weight and getting healthy, but I will embrace my curvy, muscular figure. As far a sexy goes? **raises middle finger**
- Is it possible to rebel against yourself? Sure, I've had many paradigm shifts in my life. I think that's a part of maturing and having your own mind. I don't simply believe things because someone told me; I search them out myself.
- What’s your favorite song about rebellion? I have several. I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone by the Monkees. I know it's about a guy saying he's not going to be a doormat for a girl, but the message of the chorus spoke to me. I played the song a lot during my high school days. White and Nerdy by Weird Al Yankovic because I love the fact that being brainy and square is just fine (I swear Al was thinking of me when he wrote this). I would say Your Grace is Enough by Chris Tomlin is a good rebellion song because the human thing is to claim to need no one and to be "self made." Leaning on God's grace is not popular, but it works a heck of a lot better than trying to do it all yourself.
