COVID-19 had a more unconventional start for me than it did for many of my friends and peers. It was March of 2020 junior year spring break. I decided to visit my best friend, who was studying abroad in Prague. We planned a week-long trip to travel Prague and different cities in Italy during my time there.
Since I was a young child, I have always enjoyed traveling and seeing what the world has to offer. Growing up, my family and I were always moving, which allowed me to view and appreciate new experiences. Throughout my life, I’ve called three states, six towns, and 11 houses my home. Each place I have lived has taught me an important lesson and has helped me grow.
The beginning of a new year always leaves people questioning the future and wondering what’s to come. So when the ball dropped in 2020, it was not a weird thing for my family to wonder. As the year started to progress, everyone went on with their lives, business as usual, until a new opportunity arose.
Growing up in a military household can negatively affect some people. But I wouldn’t be who I am today without it. Yet a lot of people don’t understand what children go through who have a parent in the military.
After a 30 minute scenic drive to escape the bustle of the growing town of Oxford, you will find a hidden gem called Taylor.
We said goodbye to our new furry friends and continued on our trek to the unknown. We came around one last bend, and that’s when I saw her for the first time. An iconic old house sits at the stop sign when you enter Taylor. Instinctively I turned left, and found Taylor Grocery.
