Where I come from?

I grew up in Central Pennsylvania. The running joke is that around here we only have two season, winter and construction season… Seriously though, I grew up in the country around dairy farms. Let me tell you, I do NOT like cows at all – chasing cows, milking cows or feeding cows. Horses, now that is another post for another day.

My high school was the all American rural high school. I graduated with 98 kids (one of the largest classes to graduate) and ran away to college. I attended Dickinson College for a year and realized living on my own wasn’t all it cracked up to be. I love the amenities of ordering in food or walking to the store. We could catch the bus to the other side of town or hang out at a coffee shop. I loved living in what I considered the “city.” Hey, it was bigger than any place else that I lived… I moved back home and decided to attend Penn State.

I tried the branch campus but it just wasn’t as exciting as I had hoped. I couldn’t transfer to the infamous main campus fast enough. The excitement from football games, the ease of grabbing food downtown. I was in heaven. Who wouldn’t be?? So my obsession with all things convenient began, aka city life.
