Thank you for visiting my blog!
I’m a Sailor in the US Navy. I was stationed on a ship in Japan from 2013-2016. Now I live in Hawaii, through some incredible miracle/accident/mistake? I mention this because
- The Navy comes up a lot in my writing since the military has a way of permeating all aspects of one’s life, and
- I’m supposed to disclaim that all of the perfectly expressed opinions here are my own and not a reflection of the Department of Defense.
My home is Rhode Island, the littlest state with the longest name and shortest motto. I studied politics and philosophy at a small, Catholic college in Worcester, MA. I enjoy swimming, reading, gaming, bullet journals, mac and cheese, and hopefully making people laugh. I excluded “writing” and “running” from the list because, although I feel compelled to do both, I wouldn’t say I always enjoy them.
My goal for this blog is to publish something every month as a form of writing practice, better known as “screaming into the void.”
Credit for the blog title goes to D.O., a fellow Sailor who combined my name with “biceps” and reminded me daily that I had a thick neck. Thanks.
