Does anyone else find that they just can't fight off their parents' influence?? Like is it destined that we are going to have the comedy stylings of our parents? If it is, I am destined to be corny....This makes me sad.
I think I am slowly turning into my mother,I cannot deny it.

I don't know about DESTINED. I'm thinking, like, we can't help but be shaped at least a little by our genes. Which kinda come from our parents...
And I think we are shaped by like, everything around us. ANd are parents are definately around us, right?
Be yourself. 'Cause if you're busy being somebody else, who's gonna be you?
Of course you can't you are their influence; nature or nurture- doesn't matter you are inescapably your parents child- they're in your blood and in your brain and in your bones.
Just hope you don't have too much to worry about inheriting. If you do you just have to reject it as much as you can and pick the good bits your genes and their parenting have bequeathed you- even if that's just a living reminder not to be like your parents
I'd be proud to turn into either of my parents. As it is I'm turning into both- just not always in a good way.
I'm just like my dad, cuz I'm a good swimmer and guitarist and i'm funny...
and I'm just like my mom in terms of "female charm" (a.k.a. flirtatiousness)
... but i also have the pickiness and craziness and obsessive tendencies of my mom... and my grandparents... and aunts.
don't worry about being a corny joker... a lot of my friends actually tend to laugh really hard at corny jokes... even when sober : )
I am exactly like both of my parents. I have similar facial expressions to my fathers and I do funny dances like my mother.

Yay, now they don't think you're queer, just a slut!
