Living in a small town is just a constant conversation with my mom about how she saw so-and-so’s parents at the grocery store and how great they are doing and how they are graduating from grad school or have a prestigious and high paying job now or they bought a house, etc, and I’m like, that’s…
Preface: I think, for a few months anyway, that this blog is going to become an emotional dump as well as a zoological nerd blog. If that’s not cool with you, please go ahead and unfollow me.
