Albatross Conundrum

I'm a lady, 22 years of age in Midwestern U.S.

I enjoy the company of animals, books, music, and the wonderful people I've encountered so far in my life.

Currently working toward the dream of being a librarian in the Pacific Northwest. We'll see how that goes.

Talk to me. I'll respond with fervent eagerness.

Cut a chrysalis open, and you will find a rotting caterpillar. What you will never find is that mythical creature, half caterpillar, half butterfly, a fit emblem of the human soul, for those whose cast of mind leads them to seek such emblems. No, the process of transformation consists almost entirely of decay.

"Are you close?"
"Well, I’ve still got two daughters that need to go to college. So no."
