    Between The Two.

    I have to have myself evenly distributed between the two. My dad says there's a big lake or something in Wisconsin that's like an ocean that if I ever wanted to move there it would probably work. If I remember what he said right. lol We talked about so many places that it kind of...

    Almost There

    Where I live the mountains are visisble, but distant.. and the beach, well it's not exactly beautiful, more like kinda flat and boring, and the water is far from clear. It's also not very secluded at all lol. The beach here backs onto the town, there's nowhere to shelter from the...

    Nobody likes going to the beach with me because I'm way out in the waves the entire time. No sun tanning. No sand castles. Just cold, deep, wonderful ocean.
