What Was I thinking?

[ post inspired by Ashamedtosay ]

This is EJ & I in our high school hallway.
There's me on the left. It appears like I'm protecting her,
but really it had been EJ lookin' out for ME since preschool.
I'm wearing my artist palette pin on my sweatshirt,
and my purple Reminiscence carpenter pants.
The fact that I haven't applied to ANY colleges yet
isn't worrying me at all,
though I'm pretty sure it's keeping my parents awake at night.
Moments before this pic was taken, EJ and I were probably scheming
new excuses to sneak out on a weeknight.
And she was practicing her juggling. In the hall.
Everything that we have been through has made us as strong
and as confident as we could possibly be at this moment.
We have no clue what lies ahead,
only a loose plan for the next 3 or 4 hours.
Maybe.

I thought I left a comment, or a caption to go with the photo...
"most likely to join the big apple circus, juggling a family and design graphics biz"

I still have no clue what lies ahead.

Thank you, Heid. For everything.
