Lexi is a fourth-year English major. She enjoys bird-watching, crocheting, and taking long walks (especially when flowers and colorful fungi are involved). Her favorite bird is a toss between the Carolina Chickadee and the American Goldfinch.
I find cemeteries to be awkward places. I feel incredibly self-conscious in grocery stores, but a cemetery that living people are visiting is a thousand times worse, especially when you can’t find the grave you are looking for.
My neighbor at my childhood home was a mechanic. He and I used to race on Ripsticks up our long shared driveway in the afternoons after school. Whenever I saw the light on and the garage door open to his shop, however, I’d throw my bookbag down and book it over to watch him tinker with a metal conglomeration in the hood of a car.
