My name is Averil and I've lived in Southern-California all of my life. I've never been married or blessed with children.
I was a poor student throughout my academic youth, and I always felt that perhaps I was a slow learner as I continually kept falling behind in my classes. But in the midst of all that I stayed interested in English, writing and words. I did however, manage to get my GED, and then enrolled into a few classes in a community college, but wasn't as successful as I had planned.
Now at 50 yrs old I'm hoping to broaden my vocabulary which is something I've always wanted to do. They say better late than never, right ?
