Grow Where You’re Planted

I hate cheesy platitudes.  Like, I really despise them.  If it’s in the college dorm decoration section at Target or a trending hashtag, you can pretty much bet that it will never leave my lips under any circumstances other than mockery and mourning for tomorrow’s generation.  But for some reason, “grow where you’re planted” gets a […]
