SOD April Round Robin & Skeletons in the Closet Entry

Hey guys! It's finally the 22nd where I am so I can finally share this page that I have done for the SOD April Round Robin challenge. It also is for the Skeletons in the Closet challenge over at SOD as well.
It is titled 'Young and Unprepared'. The pic is of me when I was a senior in high school. It was taken after I had performed in a school talent show and I was basically throwing a fit because I wasn't allowed to go have dinner with everyone who was in the show because I was grounded. At the time I thought it was unfair ... now I realize it was completely justified, after all I was grounded because I totaled my car. I choose this picture of me because it was from a time of when I thought I knew everything when I really knew nothing. In this picture I thought I knew exactly how my life was going to go and boy was I wrong.

The hidden journaling states "Looking back I can clearly see a crossroads in my life. I didn't realize it at the time but I was too young and unprepared to take the responsible path. I dropped out of college and just focused on having fun. I do and I don't regret this. Making that decision has made my life harder, however it has also made me who I am today and I like me." I know its not popular to not completely regret the mistakes in one's life however if I went back in time I think I would still make the same decisions. I like where I have ended up and though I know that I am still not where I wish to be, I am who I wish to be and I am with who I wish to be with. So in the end I think it's all good and the decision that I made then has defined who I became. Ok enough with the heavy stuff. Here is a close up of the flowers. A tutorial will soon follow for the plastic distressed flowers.
Thanks for looking!
