The Observer - a photo journal

5:17 on 6.13.09 | 2009-06-14 |

Saturday I was invited to celebrate personal achievements at a friendís house. While there I took my 5:17 picture, a chair. Itís crazy what has happened in my life over the last few years. Five years ago I didnít even have my A.A. degree after being a perpetual student for *cough* years. Four years ago my Grandmother lay dying in a hospital bed. Two years ago I finally got my B.A. in English. And today I sit poised to start a Masters program in Library Science. Though that time I had some ups and downs, and of course nothingís been easy. But at the end of the day I know myself better. I think the worst thing that I have experienced are the deaths of my Mother and Grandmother. After that everything else just isnít has hard to deal with. I guess thatís why Iím still standing here.
