Have you ever known me to use social media to state what I’m really doing?

I began on Wednesday to write a post about 3 awe-inspiring occurances that happened to me at work. Until I noticed I spent an inordinate amount of time giving backstory about the workings of my day, which then prompted the realization that I haven’t made a post about what I actually do. Shocker.

So against my nature, I’m going to write about things that happen almost daily in my life. In the coming week, you can anticipate a (currently untitled) Part I describing my job.
