This morning I was texting with a photographer friend who mentioned something about “talk about what you mentioned in your Rangefinder article.” In typical me fashion, my response was “huh?” And then “oh yeah I did an interview with them” but I had yet to actually see an article nor could I remember when it would be published. But apparently it is in print in the current issue and so I immediately had to go find the article so that I could read about myself…mostly to make sure that I didn’t say anything stupid or otherwise publicly humiliate myself. And I was very glad that there seem to be no immediate or obvious reasons for embarrassment. And therefore I am happy to share it here. Click here to go to the article if you want to actually read the words. :)

RANDOM STORY ALERT: Just in case anyone questions why my default reaction to a magazine article would be to brace myself for public humiliation, I would like to reference an event in high-school when I was interviewed by the local paper after a lacrosse game. I was on a championship team and although I was not exactly a star player, I did get particularly lucky one day and scored a bunch of goals. Woohoo, go me. So after the game they let me talk to the local newspaper. A week later upon reading the one paragraph “article”, what was sure to be my 15 minutes of fame and the pinnacle of my existence, I read my little quote in the Fairfax Connection. And whatever it was they claimed I had said (by now I have blocked out the specifics), was practically nonsense. It may not have even been English. “OMG, I didn’t say that!” I was embarrassed. Because when you are 17, pretty much everything is horrifyingly embarrassing. Just ask my mom, she has plenty of stories. Actually, no don’t ask my mom.
