Down South

I'm learning that people here are a little bit different than what I had gotten used to in Baltimore and DC. Way more similar to the folk I grew up with on the eastern shore.

Everyone says "sir" and "ma'am".

There are gun stores everywhere.

People go whitewater rafting and four-wheeling.

People watch Nascar.

Drivers are sloooow.

I have never felt like more of a northerner in my life.

Basically, it's been a crazy month (Longer than a month? No idea.).

We moved down here, started wedding planning. I started my new job, G started school.

There's a lot going on. Luckily, Richmond seems like a beautiful city and I am liking it a lot.

I did have a slight nervous breakdown at work. Luckily they were really supportive and nice about it, attributing it to the many many many major life stressors that I have been going through in the past few weeks.

On the bright side, I am really enjoying being in a new place and starting all of my new projects.
