Lynchburg, Virginia. I never thought I’d find myself living in a smaller city such as this one, let alone one with such a name! If that eludes you altogether, just ask me later about the immediate thought that comes to a New Yorker’s mind when they hear of a place further south by that name. Outside of purposes for attending college, I never even thought I would manage to stick around. Alas! 6 years from the day my city girl heels hit this pavement, here I am. It has turned out to be “home” for me beyond the college life.
Now if you’re like me and have at times found yourself like Belle singing, “There must be more than this provincial life,” despair no more. There is more and you just have to discover it and make the best of things. Then everyday won’t quite be like the one before! Although I must say that there are a few Gastons here and all the other single, eligible bachelors must be cursed in some far away castle that I and many others have yet to discover. Maybe in Forest? Nevertheless, we must hope!
You can hear more as I share on a New In Lynchburg podcast featuring yours truly as a guest speaker! You can also listen on iTunes here if that strikes your fancy. Feel free to comment on this post and share your thoughts or any tips you might have on finding where the Beast lives! Haha!
Until then…Bon voyage!
