Life has not been too bad-My EXPERIMENT.

I recently found an experiment on the quote: life has not been too bad! So far. I decided to try myself.
– take the year of your first birthday and subtract your age now. I found myself in 1909. I was face to face with my 21 year old grandmother. She was married with two children. Her husband was a farmer and she was a maid in one of the big house in the village. So life has not been too bad! Really. Continue reading
