I was born in 1987, the first of two children to Curtis and Alma Griffin. My mother worked as a store clerk at a local western wear store until she became pregnant with me. When I was first born, times were hard. My dad worked at the cemetery and attended the local Junior College. Eventually he got work with the city, something to do with the water. Sometime after my sister was born, my mom was employeed at the local electric cooperative as a receptionist. My dad completed his degree and was able to go to work for a contracting business in the drafting department. Due to the instability of the oil fields (a large customer for my dad's employers) he decided to take a job at the county road department. I was raised in Lovington, NM and still live there today. I just recently graduated from Lovington High School and plan on attending the College of Santa Fe. I will major in Film and hopefully get a minor in Political Science or maybe go for a dual major. One day I'll be a wealthy film maker and politician, as well as own lots of businesses.
