L.M.N.O.P: Amy, 41 - North St. Paul

Amy, 41
North St. Paul

“I grew up mostly around St. Paul, Minneapolis and the surrounding areas — suburbs and stuff. So I’ve been kind of in a lot of places. I move around quite a bit seeing different places, talking to different people — everything. Itís been an adventure. 

Life’s been crazy. I’ve done lots of stuff. Just being with the wrong people in the wrong place and all kinds of stuff. People are up to no good and, you know, going along with them — like, I don’t want to deal with this. Too much craziness. I’m done with the craziness. 

I’ve got to get my life together now. Get a job and save some money and get a car or something. I hate taking the bus. It takes too long and it’s getting worse and worse. I’m trying to sell some clothes to the guy at the antique store. 

Rock ‘n roll t-shirts. Just ones I’ve collected over the years. I’ve been kind of selling to him for the past month or two, just miscellaneous stuff I think would go in there. They were in my closet and I’m trying to sell them to get some money. Still a ways to go, but the more I save up the better I’ll be able to get a car — a good car, not a piece of junk. 

I’m just done with all that stuff. Just pulling pranks on people and doing stuff you shouldn’t be doing. I want to kind of grow up more instead of doing all the crazy stuff everybody else does — it’s like you don’t get anywhere. 

I guess the serenity prayer is my favorite: ‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.’”
