Well, I thought I would give this whole blog thing a try. I've been thinking of doing one for ages but couldn't decide where to host it, and I think it's really cool that all the people here can set up their own blogs.So, this weekend I went to my younger sister's high school graduation...she was the valedictorian and gave a beautiful speech that focused on a poem our Mom wrote called "The Student's Creed." Mom passed away 3 weeks after my sister started high school, so her speech centered around how she had to try and overcome her loss in order to succeed at school. I couldn't believe how emotional I found it, I was just so proud of her. At the same time, I found being at the graduation kind of depressing. I went to the same school and graduated 5 years ago at the head of my class, with my future looking so bright!And now, I just feel like everything has been wasted. I've been so sick over the last few years that I don't attend University full-time anymore, and I don't socialize like I used to...I just don't feel like myself anymore. And most of the time I can deal with that, but being there surrounded by all my old teachers and everything just made me feel really bad about everything.I keep telling myself that things will be ok, and that eventually I will get better and life will start looking like I think it should again, but I think it's going to be a long road Well, off to the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruit, the highlight of my Saturday night.
