Author has written 64 stories for Life, Love, Song, Haiku, Friendship, Horror, General, Nature, Religion, and War.

I have the tendency to reevaluate myself after being a massive cunt for months on end. I'm like a phoenix in the sense that over time I become less and less of an asshole. (Or so I think.)

Nobody hires me because I'm a smartmouth and I have 75mm lobe piercings. I spend my time painting and being a pretentious vegan.

My accomplishments in life include getting my GED, becoming engaged to the most gorgeous amputee in Minnesota, teaching my child sarcasm, and being sober for eight months. It's all actually pretty cool, not gonna lie.

Pardon my old, terrible writing. The woe-is-me whining phase. You know how kids are.
