Living in Anchorage and working in the valley meant that I didn’t have a lot of friends where I actually lived. I’d see a few people in the stores, but Anchorage is a pretty big place and most of my friends there are on the other side of town where I went to church. Not to mention the fact that I was always working out in the valley and basically only slept in Anchorage. So, cut to my first day out here in Palmer – I ran into at least four people that I knew from school just at the post office, and ended up chatting for the longest time. It was nice! However, I think my days of being able to run to the store looking like a slob are officially over!
