As most of you know, because maybe I’ve mentioned it once or twice,  I spend a good chunk  of my summer at the lake. I know, I know. Shut up already. OK, well you don’t have to go that far, but I get it. If you feel like Liz or Ross and want to bail, […]

  You guys, I can’t hear the crickets chirping. I can’t hear the crickets chirping, and it’s driving me insane. Almost as insane as hearing the crickets chirping. If I could. Let me explain.

One week. ONE WEEK until all the feelings will start to be felt. It’s one week ’till graduation, ya’ll. I’m anticipating this –> will quickly turn into this –> all because of this –> I’m thinking this might help the process –> but I can’t be sure. However, today isn’t next week, and the past two […]
