Once Upon A Time, I Lived in California.

Once upon a time, I lived in California. I decided to move there towards the end of my sophomore year, at A&M in College Station, in 2015, and I freaking did it. I packed up my car, I said “See you in two months” to the people I loved, and on October 21st, I left….

Hey everyone, it’s me, Tori. It’s been a while. Let’s catch up, shall we? I last left you all on this writing outlet explaining why I’m moving back to Texas, last March in 2016. Writing that post was the hardest thing I had to do in a long time. I felt shameful, embarrassed, and like…
