Dear Reader,

The reason for this blog is just a way for me to collect all of my thoughts/ opinions/ stories before I forget them. I am that person who buys beautifully designed journals with the intention of writing “all things me” in them, just to find them abandoned around the house. Matter of fact, I only filled one journal in my life; I was in the second grade and wrote largely with terrible penmanship. Oh, and half were filled with sketches (definitely forshadowed my art career).

For the new coming year, I really want to challenge myself to jot down whatever may come to mind. My wish is for at least one person to laugh, learn, reflect, counter argue, and even disagree with what I’ll write; hoping to impact someone in a positive way. I don’t know if I’ll continue to have a blog by the year 2019, but we’ll see where the 2018 blog takes me.

In advance, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read all of my posts.
