subject line: counting down. January 27, 2016 by Hannah Brencher north carolina If I had known that agreeing to sign this lease would mean allowing the perfect cocktail of all my childhood peeves into an otherwise ideal living situation, I would have walked and never turned back. It blows my mind how one person can be so completely naive, continually proving time and again that age is simply a number and no means by which to measure maturity. But I agreed to this, so here we are. And I will keep counting down the days until the keys are turned in and I don’t have to look back anymore, and won’t have to worry about your life choices and apparent need to overshadow everything I do and say.If I had known, I would have walked. Instead, I am stuck counting and waiting and praying that each second goes by faster and faster.
