5 years and 11 days ago I moved to Memphis.
I moved from Fayetteville, Arkansas (after a failed attempt at law school, two years working at a bank during the day and a bar at night, and a year into a long-distance relationship) to Midtown Memphis.
And have now spent 17ish% of my life in this city.
While I probably won't be here for another 5 years (since, god willing, I'll finish my PhD and get a job at some point...), it's been a great 5 years, and I can't wait to see what the rest of my time in Memphis has for me!
(My first Memphis sunburn, after the zoo the weekend I moved here)
(Oliver exploring the chaos in my first apartment - good old Rembert Street)
(And then I moved. Poor Oliver.)
(I got my MA, and started a PhD program!)
(I got a puppy, Petunia!)
And just recently I wore a dinosaur hat and went shopping with this guy :).
So now for the only appropriate video to go with this post.
It has nothing to do with Memphis.
And is kind of morbid.
But Bowie is a badass.
