Why did I leave The warmth of the south for the still winter of the North? This is not Game of Thrones.

I really miss Grand Rapids.
7 more days and I’m on my way.
Headed back to the great lake state.
There’s no place like HOME(S).
It fits me like a
The girls & the groom.
Waiting for the fire to die out. Everybody’s gone home. I leave tomorrow to go back to Oklahoma. Not sure how I really feel about it. I’m gonna really miss my friends. My nephew Brayden. I know everything will be alright. It’s just the transition that the most difficult. All the packing and unpacking just to pack it all up again in another few months. I’m going to college. Getting an education so that I can make a difference in this messed up world. But why does that mean I have to make so many changes? So many grown-up decisions? Being an adult is hard. I dunno if I like it. Blah.
Kyan and I went to a farmers market today. We ended up buying 4 ears of corn, and a thing of organic blueberries. They’re naturally wild so they’re smaller. They’re super yummy though! :]
Two years ago today, more than a million gallons of tar sands oil poured into the Kalamazoo River. The tar sands pipeline operated by Enbridge Inc. contaminated nearly 40 miles of the watershed, making it the largest & most expensive spill in the Midwest.
It is still being cleaned up today.
“My family was directly impacted by the spill. The toxic fumes gave us rashes, nausea and headaches. By taking a stand against tar sands we are fighting for people’s rights and health. Our River will never fully recover, but we can educate the country about the dangers of tar sands and the disastrous impact this type of spill can have so the same thing doesn’t happen to you.” -Susan Connolly, who lives by the river.
