Interviewing is the Worst – Part 1
Interviewing is the worst. I believe this statement can be true across all kinds of people in the able-bodied community and in the persons with disabilities community.

In the summer of 2018 I made a simple decision that has impacted my life even years (a year and a half to be exact) later.

A Circus Side Show?
In 2014 I went through a break up that was very difficult for me. Instead of sitting with my emotions and processing them, I did the next best thing and ran away from them.
