After 9 months of working dead-end jobs I got accepted to 3 Universities with my nearly perfect GED scores.
I watched my mother grow from a single teen mother to mature woman, now married with 4 other children.
Wasted 8 yrs being really depressed and blinded by immature thoughts of suicide.
Realized one day that I was surprised to be still alive and astonished by what I've accomplished.
