I am an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer in Springfield, Massachusetts. In truth, I came here out of boredom and frustration.

My younger self used to worry about onions on my pizza slice, but now those types of things are trivial to me; the reality now is that some things can slip away from your fingers in an instant – things that are not lucky charms, but rather people.
