I never know how to explain what I do to people. When they ask, I usually tell them something super clever like -  "Stuff."

Every winter, I live in fear of my computer breaking down. Because that means I will have to take it to an actual person that uses words like “hard drive” and “ram” and “Why is there gold in the card reader?”

But my very favoritest part of all...okay...I have two favorites. I love that there is always SOMEONE SOMEWHERE that is awake. No matter the time or day...there is someone you can reach out to.

When I lived in South Korea....it was a pretty big deal to me to be able to connect with other living people that also liked to eat sugar and play with their food and really really really didn't know how to make it through en entire grocery shopping trip without a colossal meltdown of epic proportions as well. You know...basic every day stuff.

As it turns out, I think there's actually TWO OF ME. But...not at the same time. Goodness. That would be confusing. I don't think the two mes even like each other. It's very Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide of them. See, there's a Motivated Me and a very much UNmotivated Me.
