It all began last night when I was working a party at the Eclectic Vibe Centre while my mom was away at a drama rehearsal. It was ten o’clock before she got back. The kicker was Ashton and I both had the ACT the next morning, 8 am bright and early. 8 am isn't a big deal, it is when you have farm chores to complete first.

While I was spreading i got so many looks and they looked harder when they realized I was a girl.   I am a farmers granddaughter work is second, sometimes first, nature to me!
