    Hate It Here

    I really hate it here. I hate the random annoying stupid *** people, I hate having no where to go. I can't possibly imagine missing this place. Maybe the food, but that's it. I've lived here all my life. I can't wait to move on. I'm considering moving to Charlotte, NC. I hear it...

    Over a Stove

    Life Lessons

    I actually thought that moving from Kentucky to
