Pierced and Fierce
know. My mom said that if I got an A on the
project I could get my ears pierced over the
summer while on vacation in Houston
visiting family. Talk about motivation!! That
was all I needed to hear and as I mentioned, it sent me spiraling in to books learning and creating the perfect portfolio of all the states; from their flower to their flag it had it all! I waited anxiously to get my grade back and to discover the fate of my poor virgin ears. Needless to say I totally aced the project. I was ecstatic and that summer I did indeed get my ears pierced. Here I am nervously excited holding my older cousin Katie's bear (the same one she held when she was in my predicament). I finally passed from little girl to young woman and I went to school the next fall feeling as proud as a geeky 6th grader can.
