A sad moment in the life of Lauralee...
I realized something today...something that is very sad. I am not a "young lady" any more. I remember the first time I met my friend Ann she told me that she was 26 and I had a hard time relating to her, because that is so old.
Today I started school, and while I love it...I entered the room where they were holding a new student orientation. As I entered the room, I surveyed my surroundings and noticed a bunch of teenagers sitting at many of the surrounding tables. I selected a table and was talking to the ladies there when a counselor came in and was telling us as a group about many of the grants and scholarships available. He explained that there are many opportunities for funding for students between the ages of 14 and 21. He said "By a raise of hands, how many of you are in this age group." Most of the room raised their hands. One young lady was trying to be helpful and she said "I think we all are, except for the old lady table." I looked around and realized that she was pointing to my table. How bad does that suck!
(and to any representatives from the AARP who might be reading this...I am only 28!!!)
