"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

i am no good at math

number one reason why i am an english major and not a math major:

mel was on the phone with her sister helping her with math.
this is what happened . . .

melanie: how many times does 7 go into 20?
alyssa: (holds up one finger)

i felt really dumb.
i know that wasn't the right answer.
my brain wasn't working at that particular moment in time.
