I was born in Maine in 1990, making me 28 years old. I was raised in Maine, went to high school in Maine and love my home state.
As I packed my bags to head off to college in 2009, I was going to live outside of Maine for the first time in my life. I planned to spend four years away, then return (better educated) to live and work in the home I love.
That was the plan.
Almost a decade later, however, I still have not moved back.
