My Invisible Website

I like to think that I’m a pretty good judge of my own character. That is if you were to ask me to describe myself and one of my friends to describe me, both of our descriptions would be very similar. My view of myself is neither substantially better nor worse than someone else’s might be.

I know where my strengths lie and where I could use a little work.  I’m funny, I’m smart, I can write like a beast, and I’m a veritable cavalcade of useless facts and information.
