6 Years Ago Today

“And a Half” “And Another Half” “And Another…”

Divergent Paths and the Moments that Cause Them

  • I probably wouldn’t be a homeowner.
  • I probably wouldn’t be heavily involved in the ttrpg community.
  • I probably wouldn’t be a podcaster.
  • I probably wouldn’t have gone into technologies, or launched my own tech startup.
  • I probably wouldn’t have launched a sports journalism website.
  • I probably wouldn’t have made 90% of the art that shapes my existence today.
  • I probably wouldn’t have the same community that I’ve built for myself.
  • I for sure would not have met my incredible wife.

So…What Does “and a half” Mean?
