I went to college about 45 minutes south of Downtown. I worked in the city during a summer at school. I know my way around pretty well.
If I’d never lived in Shelby Co., if I’d never gone to college there, I would have never met Amber…or Bryan…or Eric…or Whitney…or….
If I’d never lived here, I wouldn’t have had the experiences that have shaped me into the person I am now.
I miss it. I moved across the country about 7 months ago, and I cannot tell you how bittersweet it is. I love it here, I love the people and the sense of community. But I miss being able to hop in the car and take a short drive to Five Points to go…I dunno…get a tattoo, or eat at Al’s, or catch a show.
I guess you really don’t know what you got til it’s gone.over 6 years ago
