What a ride.
This has been a post in the making for a year. There have been a ton of ups and downs. I’m still flabbergasted I made it this long.
I still classify myself as a “halfway decent” writer because I’m nowhere near a Medium master. But I’ve figured…
I have no idea how to start this off.
I guess I’ll start this off with…I came out of the womb.
This is the easy part where I give you a quick rundown of my bio. Here goes…

We’re allergic to those words. We might say them to sound like a badass, but who are are we kidding? We DO care.
