I’m feeling myself right now; well not really but I’m happy beyond words. I graduate today at 5pm. I FUCKING GRADUATE TODAY! There are so many different emotions that I’m experiencing all at once. I’m sitting here attempting to write something but I don’t even know exactly what to write. This is yet another major achievement that my mother isn’t here for. But I’m not sad or anything. I know that even though she may not be here physically, she will be there in spirit, smiling down at me. If it wasn’t for my desire to make her proud lord knows where I’d be. Speaking of pride, I’m so proud of myself. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I have a lot to be proud of. Unlike some of my peers I’m eighteen, graduating, never been pregnant, no std’s, college bound & not letting anything keep me somewhere I have no desire to be. But that’s another story.
