The hot sun blared down on my body as I pulled my shades sitting on top of my head down over my eyes. I was standing on the drivers side of my moms truck trying not to have a breakdown from the separation that was soon to come.

Today was the first day of the rest of my life and of my future. I was starting college at Westbrook College For Women, located in a small city called Westbrook, South Carolina. It was a fifteen minute drive from the Georgia state border and about ten hours from my hometown of Philadelphia.

I was forced to come here because my mom felt that I could better myself and be the first person in my family to actually finish school. I wanted to do all of that but on my own time. After graduating high school I wanted to take a year off and then enroll in college.

Not to mention, she thought that I could find a nice respectable southern boyfriend, and drop the country thug that I was with already. I wasn't having it. This heat was killing me and I missed Philly already...
