An Interactive Twilight Experience.
I'm new to Cullen's Online. I needed something besides homework to keep my mind busy. Three weeks ago I lost my beloved mother to a horrific disease that wasted her body for over 5 years. To watch a once strong woman disolve from the person she once was to a mere skeleton with skin was an experience I would not wish on Satan himself. To make matters worst, only a year and 4 months prior we lost my brother to Melanoma skin Cancer at the age of 30. He left behind his beautiful wife and 2 (then) year old son. So needless to say, life in my household has not been easy the last 5 years at least and it went downhill and crashed from there in the last 2 years. My family of 4 has now become a family of 2. My father and I will live here and try to make it in this world together. Considering my teaching career kind of sucks do to the job shortages, I'm stuck subbing and working retail to get through graduate school and hopefully a professorship in some community college.
The bottom line is--I'm pretty much a lost soul. I'm overwhelmed, I'm frightened, and I don't know what is next. I feel like I need an escape because reality has made a sharp right turn into WTFville. If you have any suggestions or guidance, I'm open.
