Growing Up in A Small Town/Not Leaving

     When you live somewhere like Menominee it’s too easy to be average and basic.           

      Everyone is scared to stand out and everyone just wants to fit in and do what everyone else does. 

     Everyone is simple minded and just has one belief: work and pay bills and buy stuff and drink alcohol on the weekends to have “fun.”

Let’s see who can work the most hours at this miserable factory job and buy the biggest truck! The truck you’ll only get to use to drive to work and then it just sits there.

       It’s a very boring place so it’s hard to be yourself so you just go with the crowd and do what everyone else does. There’s no room for individuality and no chance to do what you actually want to do. 

     I felt so trapped when I lived there and felt like I could never be myself. As soon as I got up and left I felt sooooo free and so alive and I have yet to come down. 

     It feels like my life never officially started until I left. There’s so much more to life so the sooner you get out the better. 

     Don’t be scared to do what’s best for yourself because at the end of the day the only person there for you is you. Menominee is full of fake people and they’ll try to hold you back bc they’re too scared to take the next step and they’ll be jealous if you do it. So, don’t be scared to say fuck it and leave. 


     And most of all screw Michigan winters. You deserve to be somewhere where it’s 80 and sunny all year long.
