Challenge: Write Your Memoir in Six Words!

Smith Magazine, inspired by a challenge Ernest Hemingway was once given to write his memoir in six words, has been inviting readers to do the same since 2006. I recently checked out their website and found the following six-word memoir quite poignant: "Paying off student loans with unemployment."

What's your memoir in six words? Tell me in the comments!
