I dreamed a dream


Oh man, y'all, the things I'd do with this house.

It was built in 1922.

5 bedrooms, 2700 square feet, 7 acres.

$160,000

In my dreams I buy it.

Fix it up.

Make it a lovely shade of blue.

I'd buy a cow.

Two goats.

A chicken coop.

A bunch of rescued dogs and barn cats.

I'd grow an acre or two of vegetables.

And have fruit trees.

Except I worry.

I'll never have enough money.

Or, even worse, it'll be just me and an apartment full of cats until I die.

When I was 17 I'd worry about these same things.

I never thought then that I'd still be worrying about them at 24.

Boo.
