5 years today . . .
sarah--i couldn't imagine going straight to grad school after college, let alone go into a phd program! i could barely get through my last 2 years of college. the hardest part, though, is when you're finally done with school. you spend your entire life, minus 5 years, in a structured environment. then, you're suddenly thrust into the world, expected to find a career, manage your own time, etc. it was a huge shock to my system!
today, i am a 5 year survivor of rape. you can find my letter to my rapist posted 2/15 on www.sothere.com be sure and read it.
