My name is Evan Hinton. I’ve decided to make this foray into blogging as I make a big transition in my life. After the (somewhat) failed experiment that was college, I returned home to Northern California, got a part time job and waited. Over a year went by, and I realized I was still living in my parents house while the woman I had met in college, fell in love with, and eventually engaged was doing the same. Something had to be done. Something had to shake things up. So I made the leap. I left the only real home I had ever known and went to her in Chugiak, Alaska. Now we’re trying to get enough financial steam to get out from her parents house and on our own. Between the weather and culture shock, it won’t be easy for me.
