Not too long ago, I had to get my favorite boots fixed. I got them for my 19th birthday my freshman year of college. They have been with me for the worst parts of my life- for the all the rough phases I’ve gone through and a lot of the bad choices I have made in the past 3 1/2 years. 2 colleges. 3 Majors. 1 failed relationship. 3 traumatic experiences. Lots of miles. Lots of friends. Lots of mistakes. Lots of failures.
