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.
In my dreams I buy it.
Fix it up.
Make it a lovely shade of blue.
I'd buy a cow.
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.
