I will not dwell on those years in Georgia. Suffice it to say that not only didn’t I go to school, I barely left the house, or even came out of my room. I had the whole downstairs to myself, and there I stayed, eating junk food, watching cartoons, sleeping much more than I should have, and feeling sorry for myself. My plan had been to get my GED, get emancipated, and come back ASAP, but once I was separated from YSP and all my friends, I just felt so miserable I didn’t even try. I didn’t even read, and I had always read books voraciously since I could read at all.
Finally, I was almost 18, old enough to live on my own, and my parents sent me back to Wisconsin, got me my own apartment, said they’d pay for everything for a while, and re-enrolled me in YSP. It was the beginning of another summer program: “Hamlet.”

And every day will start,
With a grateful prayer and a thankful heart!"
