On October 17th, 2010, I took a leap of faith and did something many recent college graduates dream of- I sold everything I owned except a few personal belongings, released myself from all obligations and restrictions, and went. Most people with this pull choose Europe, romantically traipsing about the globe in search of something, anything, greater than themselves. I however, a California girl as native as they get, left the golden coast with one destination in mind- Traverse City,…Continue

I go to the University of Michigan, and I see college students all semester long--we're everywhere. And, logically, because I live in a college town for 2/3 of the year, and because the only people I see or spend time with during the year are college kids, it's easy to forget that the rest of the population is not in their twenties, and actually have real lives.
