Miss you guys! Wish you were here with us.

Instead I'm doing emergency first response which is definitely less exciting. I felt like a bit of an idiot always giving my responder statement (hello, my name is Sarah. I'm an emergency responder, may I help you?) especially because people kept making me laugh. Julian was basically our test dummy for this, he is the ...
