FWIW, if you take away the journalistic chops, the decades of experience, and the having written a ton of Amazing already, this piece kind of boils down to my entire experience in Medium lol. Without fail, any piece that I pour my soul, or my tears, or my brokenness or my wholeness into…any piece to which I feel particularly attached?

Statistical DUD.

Like, an I could win big in Vegas sort of predictability.

At first it sort of broke my heart. Then it bewildered me. Now it just is.

Also FWIW I thought the dragonfly piece was all kinds of fabulous.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
