"I'm Just In the Winter"

That's right, I have left my small, close-knit town to become a tiny little speck on huge grid. Scary? Yes. Exciting? Yes. Stressful? Yes. But as scary and stressful as this decision may have been, (not to mention the actual move, shew!!), I knew it was something I needed to do. Something I had to do.
