Behind the Keyboard

My name is Parker and I currently live in Chicago, Illinois where I am working as a Writer and Editor. I am a recent graduate, having received a Master of Arts degree in Sociolinguistics. I’ve spent the last five years trying to figure out what I want to do with my life, and I thought I had it all figured out until this year. Funny how the older I get the less I seem to know who I am, where I belong, and what the hell I’m meant to do with my life.

I’m at that part of my life where I’m meant to be doing the grown-up stuff, but all I really want to do is work, hang out with my friends, and pester my mom for daily pictures of my dog. This blog is a reflection of that journey (well, maybe not the daily dog pictures part). I’ll write posts about what I’m doing, both the mundane and the potentially life-changing. I’ll write about my misadventures in cooking, my quest to find home, my faith, and my journey as a trans guy. I might even write about my health and weight loss, my love of YouTube and tech, or anything else that I’m thinking about. It might be a little haphazard and inconsistent, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
