I think that maybe there are times in life where you sit back and wonder how it all came to be, how it all happened, what it all means… I also think that this recognition comes around the time you realize that you have no idea what you want to do in your life… that’s where I am. Hopelessly. Completely. Utterly. Lost.
Yeah. What do you do when you’re not sure about what you were so sure about doing all through high school? What do you do when you’re not sure your major is right but you’re not sure anything else would be better? What if I’ve just got my major because I know it’ll give me a job? What is that even about?! BAHHHHHHH I just want to climb trees and be in the sun all day.
What did you expect? Except I don’t know that many people from NH with an accent that strong…unless they lived in MA for a good chunk of their life. The top one sounds just like my Uncle Scott/Grandpa George though.
I’m falling in love all over again, in the literary sense. Writing is the best when you make a character, and end up falling in love with him/her in the sense that you just never want to stop writing about him/her. I don’t get this lucky very often…at all. Most of my characters are born, and I’m kind of like…meh…I don’t need to continue this. But so far, Jessica, George, and this new one have been great successes. Hooray! My current subject? Read below.
Jared McKinney: Lives in Poland, Maine. Owns a sugar house and lives in a wooden shack in the middle of the woods. Tree-hugger in the absolute purest sense of the word. Adventurer. Storyteller.
I kind of want to be him. So excited to write this!
