His house is a museum.
- I wasn't even allowed to say freaking,
because it sounded like fuck.
- I realized my parents were strict,
probably some time in elementary school
when other kids got to have sleepovers and I did not.
- Unless they knew the kid's parents
I wasn't allowed to hang out with them
or they were not allowed to come over.
- My mom would let me stay at other people's houses,
but then as they were going to sleep she would just show up
and be like, time to go.

like clearly gay men and my parents would like
flip out that I was gonna get impregnated
in the time that we were playing Wii U.

and make me learn like half of my math class
for the next year.
- I went to public school, then at night
I had to go to Catholic school.

to go upstairs to play video games for one hour, exactly.

- One rule was you have to be home by sunset.
There's a period of time during the fall
that the sun goes down at four,
and then I wasn't out of school
and I had to explain that to my dad
and he was just like, when the sun is down, you are home.
- When I was a kid and I lived with my father
it was a little tough.
You know, you kick off your shoes, you're watching T.V.
the end of the night and then you forget and you go to bed.
The next morning they'll be in the trash.
He wouldn't throw them in the trash inside the house.

They basically just told me to not do it again.
Like literally for the rest of my life
to never jack off again.

He could be in the room with a girl in our house.
I feel like my brother, if you asked him,
would be like, there were no rules.
- I wasn't allowed to date until I was 16.
I started dating at 13 and I didn't care,

your husband for you.
- One of the biggest fights me and my dad ever got in
was that I was not allowed to wear short shorts.
- Or short skirts.
So I had these pair of leggings
that I wouldwear out of the house
and then as soon as I got to school or wherever else,
I would take the leggings off.

when I got home.

but I would just run upstairs to my room
and hope that nobody noticed.

my relationship with my parents
has become more reasonable.
- I think my parents could have laid back
on the idea that if I got a B on one class
my life would just be over.

It gave me structure to my life,
and it made me more responsible.

as I would have.

I feel like I'm gonna be more strict than my parents.
Mainly I want funny kids.
I want them to be Vine famous when they're toddlers,
or they're useless to me.
