This is a discussion of a woman, an ordinary woman who participates in the everyday and commonplace acts of life. As she re-views (reminiscences) about her present, past, and future. This collaboration of, and interdependence between the visual and the verbal, forms an autoethnography of a woman’s life and explores a still developing, still evolving selfhood.

Bloom, is newly diagnosed with a painful chronic illness and seriously
pissed off about it. Her body hurts constantly, her family’s a mess and
the boy she’s crushing on seems completely clueless. The best coping
mechanisms she can come up with are cursing and cutting school. But when
her truancy is discovered she must struggle to catch up in school to
avoid a far worse horror: repeating ninth grade.
