As March went on, I grew more excited each and every day. It was one thing to be home, but soon, I would be home at my own place. Well, I would share this house, but with some awesome friends. Tony, Shawn, and I were going to rent an entire freaking house.

 

I wondered if the place would become a sort of “party central,” and if I was healthy enough for that possibility, but in the end, it was a consistent place at which to rest my head and begin my new life.

 

The nights that I stayed at the apartment grew in numbers as I had yet to pack. It felt like yesterday that I had moved in this apartment, but it was only because I had spent less than a week total at this place.

Sleeping on a Purple Mattress (A Review)

*Before you ask, no, the mattress isn’t purple in color.*

I didn’t know when I’d ever get a bed. Continue reading

Colin,

 

When I first heard you on Beyond in 2010, I despised you. I rolled my eyes whenever your voice appeared. But as I listened, I grew fond of your honesty and insight. So, I took a long and hard look at myself as to why I would react in such a way, and I had to admit that I was wrong. I misjudged you.
