I am a writer, through and through. I love that I can create something with words and have it be entertaining and meaningful in some way. Feel free to ask about a story written just for you if you like what you read.

Other than that, I'm a mom with two kids (occasionally three). My life is crazy....:)

Great gods, it's been a while since I've updated this. O_______O I'm so sorry guys!

My foster kid graduated high school! :boogie: :party:

Bit of a background on the kid--been in and out of foster care since she was 5, consistently since she was 12 (she's now 18).  No one in her family -ever- graduated high school. Whole gamut of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional) on this kiddo but she still managed to stay mostly positive and determined as ever.  During the past year that she's lived with me, it's literally been a roulette of which family member would be in jail this week. o_O  A friend of hers committed suicide and another one had to move out of the area.  Her family was consistently contacting her instead of me with their problems, piling their stress onto her as well.

                                         EQG Sunset Shimmer Worried Plz  Feel free to be horrified.  It's valid.  sam dean  winchester shocked emoticon 

But, through it all, she managed to take an entire semester worth of courses, a makeup course that normally takes a year to do (she finished it in 3 months), worked with the legislature in our state to improve laws for foster kids (both passed!!! XD ), spent time with her friends, family, volunteered around the community.

Her caseworker complained that she didn't have her driver's license yet and hinted that she wasn't happy that the youth wasn't going directly into college in September, trying to coerce the kid into going.

                                                (I reeeeeeeeeeeally don't like that person.)

I fully realize that, for many people, graduating high school doesn't seem like that big of an achievement and that, in America at least, it has become the standard expectation that people go straight to college.

                                                                            Spidey Face Palm Icon

So I told the kiddo that she didn't have to go straight to college if she didn't want to.  Hell, she didn't have to go at all if she didn't feel it was right for her.  She just fought tooth and nail to graduate high school and I was proud of her for getting as far as she did.  She decided to take a break for a bit and slowly work on getting a job and making sure that she's going to be able to pay for things for a while.  Silly things like a place to live and food so that she doesn't have to rely on the government to pay for everything for her.

After today, I'm taking a break too. XDD

I wish you guys a whole ton of happiness and fun times with the ability to stay cool during the heat.
