Good lord what do I even call this other than a weird rant

Before turning 21, drinking was this weird thing I considered very grown up, but also youthful. Alcohol was surrounded by a gauze of mysticism. How would it make me feel?

I love a good pumpkin patch! And luckily my housemates do too! We all went to the Milledge Avenue Baptist Church Saturday and found gourds galore. I found the perfect, small one right off the bat. While I love carving pumpkins, I always feel bad that the insides go to waste. I also hate that … Continue reading Re-Think Your Pumpkin Carving Scraps
