About

typewriterThank you for reading my blog.

I’ve always loved to write. When I was in third grade, my teacher, Mrs. Wheelihan, submitted some of our class’s short stories to the local paper. I still have a copy of mine (laminated, no less!) that was printed in the Suburban Trends – it was titled The Great Superball Attack. I thought it was brilliant.  I was published! At age 8! I was destined for greatness.

…so what am I writing about these days? Stuff that really happened. No kidding.

So this blog is a bit of my sanity, or occasional lack thereof, and it’s all out in the open. Have fun reading, and onwards!
