Humble Roots

I contemplated on what I should write about all weekend and I kept thinking of what we breifly talked about it class. How most people think they have really “made it” when they finally leave their hometowns. People always feel the need to leave where they are originally from in order to have a sense of accomplishment. But what they don’t realize is that you still have potential to give back and it will benefit your and your community. Like Lincoln for example, I remember growing up and everyone dreaming of the day they finally got to leave ( not going to lie I thought about it also). I understand everyone has different experiences and some truly need to escape from this place. But I guess my views on Lincoln have changed slowly over time, from a boring place with nothing to and nowhere to go…to a little big town with charming character,  nice people and adventure that can be made from anything. More recently the university has also given me a new outlook on this town, maybe because it’s a new environment that I have never experienced. But I have become so attached to my experience here that I can’t see myself spending the rest of my life anywhere else.
