Going home brings a flood of emotions: happiness. Nostalgia, comfort. It also brings the cold hard truth that you're under your parents' supervision once again. Some parents are chiller than others, but at the end of the day we all get the “where are you" text.

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will.

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident.
