I want to keep my first post short and sweet, normally I will chat with you about life–in general, in fails, in hot mess situations, and I’m sure we’ll all have a wondrous laugh. But for now, I’ll just keep it simple with saying hello and welcome to Get A Grippel! Eventually I will share with each of you the reason behind launching the site today of all days (February 17, 2019 if you’re wondering) but today is not the day to delve into the nitty gritty of my past, but instead it’s a day to look forward and celebrate why we’re here.
I want you to know that writing has been, and most likely will always be, a significant part of my life. (When you’re given the gift of “gab” it’s only natural to want to share you thoughts and ideas with any poor soul willing to entertain you even for the shortest amount of time.) Ever since I was in high school–tucked away in some corner of the local bookstore, writing away in my journal as my brain regurgitated ideas out onto the pages–I knew writing would hold some significance to my life growing up. (And thank God for being a Millennial and having access to personal laptops and the internet, because, as we all know, nothing bad ever happened from someone posting their thoughts online…right..?)
If you would like more info please choose from the menu above. There you’ll find that my posts featured on my Home Page are actually separated by “Life Stories” and “Short Stories” (I think we all know the latter is a figment of my imaginations, but in case you’re not sure–this is your clarification.)
So, without further ado, I sincerely welcome you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me make this dream a reality.
