Hogan Torah, I read the story you’re referring to right before this piece went live. There was a little voice in my head that said, “ugh, people are going to think you’re a braggy loser.”
Luckily for me, you (and many other lovely readers) looked past the headline, gave me a shot and actually read the piece, and for that I am grateful.
Your comment is incredibly encouraging. Thank you so much for reading and for the support!
