Updated ‘Me’?

I realized it's been a long time since I updated my archaic "about me" page, and decided to do something about it. Wanna check it out? Do! I think in a lot of ways it's important for me to look back on where I came from and take note of the steps that it took… Continue reading Updated ‘Me’?
