This is Supergirl Two, age 19 and I, her mom, taken last summer. That girl will not let me take a candid shot of her, so the posed one will have to do. She's home all summer and as I mentioned on a previous post, looking for a job. In the fall she'll go back to Boston University as a sophmore in the journalism program of the school of communications. The 3.6 semester GPA is something we are currently celebrating. It's also a relief. The financial side of success isn't going to be pretty. But we're hoping through the concerted efforts of family that we will make it through okay.
We're still waiting to hear about Supergirl One's final grades. She'll be a senior (oh my gawd) in the fall at Mount Holyoke. Her summer schedule makes my head spin. Holy shit. She's taking a break the rest of this week, then starting her job at the college next week and until June 2 when she starts summer session classes at UMASS. She worked her tail off last summer at waitressing at a local inn and after summer session, she's taking a much-deserved break. Her Beloved will be going home to Sacramento for the summer. How those two will survive two months without each other remains to be seen. Oh, to be young and in love! Though I am concerned that her Beloved's family is not as supportive of the relationship as CR and I are. They're not disowning her for being a lesbian or anything but SG1 was a little put-off by some of their reactions. I'm hoping maybe they're still adjusting to the idea of seeing their little girl in love, regardless of sexual direction. I've been around them a lot more, since I visit them at their college and take them off campus for dinner and shopping and such. I'm hoping it's just an adjustment thang.
I'm home sick today and blogging like a mad-woman! Wait. I am a madwoman! :-)
