Things I've Learned Since Living In The Midwest

  • How to avoid dead racoons on the road
  • How to prove residency for everything
  • You're likely to be the only Mormon in your town
  • And probably the first one most people have met
  • The true meaning of "wind chill"
  • How to use a dehumidifier
  • That you can't pass on the right.
  • Game days are religious holidays
But most importantly, I've learned a lot about myself.
  • I can do pretty much whatever I set my mind to
  • I'm more self sufficient than I ever thought I could be
  • I enjoy discovering new places
  • I'm stronger than I ever thought I could be
  • I appreciate my family, both near and far, for the efforts they put in each day
I love living here. I love starting a new adventure for my family, and I love knowing that wherever we are, whatever the situation, we will always have each other.
