Philly Odds is just that. The odds are as usual is everything that's brought up against you is incapable of doing. In L's case, she never believed that she would beat the odds against her. She thought she was trapped in the City of Brotherly Love where she didn't receive love back-not from her family, friends, or significant others. L had dreams on becoming her own boss one day after having failed in holding down job positions due to her illness-sickle cell disease-that she lived with all her life and a hereditary disease (bipolar).
