Every single person can be boiled down to one unit with multiple boxes checked. My “boxes” include female, millennial, American-ish, feminist, geek, nerd, cosplayer, young adult, artist, crafter, optimist, short-tempered, guitar-player, cat owner, experienced, inexperienced, etc. We find people and music and writing we like by having boxes in common. So if you’ve checked one or more of the boxes I have, then you might enjoy my essays.
