Despite graduating with a WRITING degree, my writing style on this style has been very conversational, at-ease, sporadic, and slightly [in]sane. But I think that’s because I have no qualms with just being myself. Because through my pursuit of career/life happiness within entrepreneurial drive, I’ve decided that life is too short to be anything but [...]
