Summer 2011—The Time I (Sort of) Became Someone’s Booty Call

I consider myself an extroverted introvert. Having moved multiple times around the US (and at one point abroad), I’ve become very good at pretending I’m a social person (mainly because the thought of being alone terrifies me).

Because for this specific institution, one of… Continue reading December 2009—In the Beginning (An Introduction)
