This place with all of its people can be an amazing journey in which one has to face challenges and maybe even fears in order to grow. The good part, you’re not facing the scary growing up-part alone. Instead, you’ve got amazing friends around you and the chance to learn stuff you would not elsewhere. Hell, I’ve even learned how to do my taxes here.
