Description

Alright gang, this week we're diving into my past.

After rediscovering a travel memoir I was working on, but subsequently abandoned five years ago, I thought I'd read through the first couple of chapters that never were.

The memoir was intended to cover the coast to coast adventure across America that eventually placed me in Central Texas. Digging into the first section of the first draft, we find a younger, more anxious, and socially uncertain version of myself navigating the streets of New York.

Bushwick, Brooklyn to be precise.

In this episode you can expect to find plenty of cringe-worthy thoughts. Overly descriptive writing. Anxiety. Catastrophizing. The facing of demons and even a little bit of poignant insight.

Opening this memoir up after five years was a little daunting to say the least, but ultimately it proved that sometimes you really do need to look at where you were, to truly appreciate where you are.
