30 Posts - Day 7

Day 7: A picture of someone or something that has had the biggest impact on you

I choose two things. While there are certainly more than 2 things that have made an impact, these definitely made the biggest:

Alabama School of Math and Science
The school did not look like this when I graduated in 2002. I think all the renovations were finished around 2007 or 2008. Anyway, this is just the front entrance with the library, sign-in desk, student activity center, etc. This place impacted my life in a HUGE way. Before coming here, I'd had a very sheltered life; Christian family, always went to church, and attended only 1 year of real public school (10th grade)--prior to that, I'd gone to Christian schools. From the first night of my new student orientation at ASMS, I realized that there was a whole world outside of my little bubble and I was ready for it. The friends I made here are still my best friends today. 

I apologize for the morbidity
I've mentioned a few times about how my mom's death impacted and changed me. I don't want to regurgitate things you already know, but seriously--I can't even begin to imagine where I'd be in my life right now if this hadn't happened.

I don't think its morbid...I think when you right about your show how much you love her and honor her memory...I think that is awesome...

I agree with Rachel! It isn;t morbid at all! And I am really enjoying your 30 days of posting! :)
