Adversity Makes a Person

March 11, 2013

Jess had to undergo surgery late last year that left her with this large, ribbon-like scar on her inner forearm. She wanted to take some photos to commemorate and capture this moment, since she’s now getting out of the woods after all the trouble that led to the surgery in the first place. Luckily, Jess is a badass, and where a vainer person might whine about having a post-op scar, I really admire the way she’s decided to embrace it, rather than wincing away.

We also ate a whole bunch of mac and cheese that my boyfriend made. It was awesome. I loved being home for March break. Only five more weeks left of my undergrad, then back home to Halifax again!

Also: Today is the two-year anniversary of the Tohoku Tsunami in Japan. My heart goes out to everyone in Japan affected by the disaster. Recovery is still happening.

    What do you think?
