My security blanket

School is my security blanket. Its a place where my purpose is obvious and sure. Here I stand, I can do no other, etc.

In September of 2005, Rebekah Reimers, 17, enrolled in a two-year degree program at Whatcom Community College. She was scared, and short, and in love with Tennyson. In June of 2007, she will graduate from WCC with an associates degree in arts and sciences at the age of 19, having retained a grade point average of 3.8, taken five English classes, and been a member of Phi Theta Kappa. She is scared, and short, and in love with Tennyson. So what.
Or shall we say, now what? Yes, school is my security blanket. Or so it seems. No my dears, as much as I would like to say that school is my security blanket, it really isn't. That's a lie, or it should be anyway. God is my security blanket. Has been, is now, and forevermore shall be. Amen.

So there is no reason why I should be worried about the future, right? Of course right. You have convinced me, I believe there isn't.
