Wild Card #2

This assignment was part of our memoir unit. We had ten prompts, and had to write lists of things that fit in the lists for us personally. It required no explanation, no elaboration, just whatever you felt. I enjoyed it a lot, and it really made me think about myself and what makes me me.
