I’m a 22 year old nursing student living with my boyfriend, Sweet Man, in our first apartment near New Haven CT. We are both graduates of Skidmore College with degrees in history, and he is in the process of applying to PhD school right now. We’ve been dating for 3.5 years, and are planning on buying a house soon in whatever state we move to to further our educations. He would like to be a professor of renaissance history or classics, and I plan on getting my nurse-midwifery degree in a few years. My mother, who Sweet Man does not understand, lives only 30 minutes from us, with my cat Newton who is diabetic and the love of my life. I have a brother and sister-in-law who live in NYC with my seven month old niece Magnolia who is getting cuter by the day. We are just trying to get through our busy lives one day at a time now, and you are welcome to come along for the ride.
