Project B caught my attention because I am currently in my first real, happy relationship. I didn’t like to date when I was younger for I never really saw a point. I consider myself an ambitious person and I have never been able to see myself making Tennessee my permanent home. My high school was flooded with proud Tennesseans (and assholes), so I refused to settle down with a boy who could possibly change my mind.
