Yeah, your hair wouldn’t have gotten you into this sorority. They could sniff out difference, and you would have exuded it. You can’t be unaffected by the kind of chaos that kind of family life and poverty brings. I can totally understand why you left. You were amazing for coming back without the kind of intervention I was lucky to have. I was barely hanging on, and I had a support system from Upward Bound.
I appreciate the writing compliment. What’s funny is that I received this tweet from Grandma Grammar Check, who had analyzed four of my blog pages, and they generated a report of how messed up my writing is. I knew I had issues, and they confirmed it. Ha. ha.
