Some Facts
  1. My family owns four dogs (Parker, Luna, Lucy, and Sonic) and two cats (Fat Fat and Ula).
  2. My favorite numbers are my old basketball jersey numbers, one for my high school team (31) and one for my traveling team (14).
  3. I have suffered from severe major depression most of my life and take medicine to treat it. I also suffer from anxiety and have occasional panic attacks. They suck.

  5. I love making spreadsheets.
  6. I’m a caretaker for one of my parents.
  7. I have a day job in the transportation industry.

  10. The first fan-fic I ever tried to write was about a soap opera I didn’t watch.
