A room with no view…and a coat.

I want to apologize for alarming some of you with my last two posts. I generally try to write once I have things “worked out” but I realized that waiting for things to settle had become an excuse for not posting at all, so the posts from the past couple of days probably seemed hectic/unsettling…

I forgot my coat.

It was a long day.I left the south a bit later than I had planned and arrived at a small, public university, in an only electorally significant, midwestern state, just thirteen minutes before my first MCAT prep class began.

Never Keeping Secrets…

Well…that’s a lie. In fact, as my family members and other fictive kin would say, “Yous a lie.” Instead of referencing the classic Babyface hit, I should have titled it, “Confessions, Pt. II.” …so, what are the secrets I have been keeping and the confessions I need to make?…we’ll get to that. First… I would…
