Supergirl Two

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! :-)

  1. Your daughter is beautiful and congrats on the good grades. It does sound like your other daughter has a very busy schedule. I don't know how those young kids do it! I get wore out just thinking about it ;)

  2. What a beautiful photo! The supergirls sound like they are really busy, in a good way. I hope they enjoy their summer. I hope that Supergirl I's and her beloved get through the summer nicely.

    P.S. I love your grey hair. It looks fantastic.

  4. That's a beautiful picture of you and the little one, Mom! I am so, so incredibly proud of her grades this semester; it looks like she's really adjusting to the whole college thing, which takes a bit of getting used to.

    My semester was AMAZING academically, but I won't know until the 2nd of June, I think. Anticipation! I start work tomorrow morning, unfortunately, but I am SO excited to see you when we finally get a chance. I miss you. My Beloved and I will do just fine this summer- we did it last summer and survived. We're strong.

  7. You two DO look gorgeous! I love to see pictures of the people whose blogs I read -- makes you more real.

    Thanks for stopping by my place -- my week's been hectic, and I'm way behind. I'm going away for our long weekend, and will get even more behind, because of not having a computer available. I'll try to catch up on some of my intentions before I go, including the blog roll I've been procrastinating on. I'd love to have you on it, and thank you for offering to link to mine.

  8. 3.6! I could have only hoped for such an average when I was in college...

    I do hope the other side comes around and accepts the love between the two.

    By the way... I too blog like a madwoman... and I'm a madman!

  10. Thanks for celebrating the good news about SG2's GPA. Her first semester was a tough adjustment for her (big city, big college, etc.) and she had a significantly lower GPA, which really bugged her. I've tried not to put pressure on the girls; asking them simply to work their hardest. But they impose a lot of requirements on themselves. They're intensely into that "personal best" type of competition. I guess I shouldn't complain but it is intense at times.

    Thank you for the nice comments and the get-well wishes. I had a bladder infection; which I'm plagued with on occasion and I needed a day to let the anti-biotic kick in. I wish I could do more holistic treatments but for this, nothing else works.

    Namaste, my friends
