Day 1: The Story of my Life in 250 Words or Less
I was born and raised in good old Southern Maryland. I had surgery a few months after my birth because I was born with a club foot. I had a pretty normal childhood until I turned 8. Three weeks after my eighth birthday my dad died. (He had cancer; we knew it was coming. That didn’t make it easier.) My mom stayed strong on the outside so I really didn’t know how to handle it. I grew up fast, I guess.
I didn’t get into my dream college but I got into my second choice. I survived four years there and hated every second of it. I seem to have more respect for my school now that I’m DONE with it. (Go Salisbury!) I was there two weeks ago for the first time since I graduated two years ago.
