Eventually, after enough people who aren’t related to me suggested I write, I thought maybe I should listen. I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, but the race bibs on my fridge are evidence that I can become who I didn’t think I could be. I have a background in education with a focus in special education and math. I believe board games are for everyone and we should all play a little bit more than we do. I drink far too much coffee, and though I know drinking less of it might help with anxiety, I just don’t care. My cooking is practical and I live in exercise clothes. If you’re walking with a dog, I’m probably going to ask you if I can pet it. My favorite sound in the world is a cat purring and Crayola’s cornflower blue is the best blue.
