He teaches me something new every day and I really respect him. I do have baggage, but I still want those things and I shouldn’t feel bad about that, nor should I settle and not get the things I want. I graduated college the year he graduated high school. It feels kind of dumb to be writing a post about this as if it’s some kind of revolutionary discovery.
