My sister is in Peru. (Smooth, Sarah. Just jump right in, and maybe they won't notice that you skipped the intro after seventeen failed attempts to write one.) As of yesterday, my sister has been in Peru for a week, and she'll stay in Peru for another week yet. Laying concrete, or something equally monotonous.… Continue reading Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear
Every year, we always go through this routine of sappiness and sentimentalism, and every year, it's just as weird. I'm feeling slightly speechless as I type out the number 2018. Guys. It's 2018.
