Hello! If you’re seeing this post (and you are not my dad), welcome! I’ll try to make these posts as interesting as I can, but I’m human too! Strike that, I’m a Ph.D. student in the making. As I work my way around writing about things, places, and people closer to the realm of reality, you might find me sneaking in some fiction into my thoughts occasionally. With that disclaimer out, please feel free to let me know your thoughts, particularly when you believe that my thoughts stretch far away from reality! As a doctoral student, I need to be familiar with grounded research. If you aren’t a researcher, or are not familiar with grounded research, ignore my joke made in poor taste, and stay tuned to my posts as you are witnessing my attempts at professional, academic, and personal self-discovery!
