I started taking long walks in the morning before moving to the Ann Arbor area.
My parents raised me in the northern part of the lower peninsula in Alpena County.
There weren’t many kids my age in those regions, being so rural and densely forested. For middle school I attended Thunder Bay Jr High School, and then I went to Alpena High School afterward. It was no surprise to my family members when I told them during my junior year at Alpena High that I wanted to attend the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. While most of my family were Michigan State fans for college football, I was the odd one out who always rooted for the Wolverines. It’s largely because of the amazing school trip that I took there when I was just 12 years old. We visited the Leslie Science Center, but I was just awestruck by the trees. It was September and the leaves were starting to get a touch of amber in their colors. This made for a fantastic first impression with the city. Then a few years later a friend of mine pooled money with me to attend a football game at Michigan Stadium. It was the big annual matchup between the Wolverines and their sworn rivals the Ohio State Buckeyes. Now that I’m a student, the games are a lot cheaper to attend. However, I’d rather go for walks around the city with my cannabis vaporizer cartridges in my pockets. I can pack an active sativa strain and have a wonderful walk from one end of the city to the next. Not to mention having access to so many amazing dispensaries here in Ann Arbor.
