This is the first time I haven’t had a job since I was 15. I don’t really know what to do with my hands during all of this free time.

In between job applications, researching how to work for myself and meal planning, I have rekindled the very serious relationship I once had with fictional TV characters.

For example, today I re-watched the Grey’s Anatomy season 8 finale. YOU KNOW WHAT EPISODE I’M TALKING ABOUT.
