Meet Matt!

Dear you,


It’s been so long since we last spoke, I feel almost as if we don’t know each other anymore! It almost feels as if we NEVER spoke before…like you’re just some random person on the internet. But that’s just silly, right?


You’re probably wondering what’s going on in my life right now. Well, the biggest thing is my new internship – I’m the editorial team manager for the Made in Millersville Journal. What’s that you ask? Well, we take all of these wonderful presentations from the Made in Millersville Conference and condense them into smaller papers that anyone can pick up and understand. I work with the other interns to help them overcome any obstacles that might stand in the way of helping the authors.


Homelife is good too. I’m sure you remember my beautiful, amazing wife April. I swear she has books glued to her hands – she’s always reading. We adopted an old lady wiener dog named Piper who was given up because she was so overweight, she couldn’t walk (her legs are SO close to the ground). She lost a ton of weight and is healthy now. And our cat Vorhees is well too – but I still have to call him Mr. V as April doesn’t want a cat named after a supernatural serial killer. We adopted him, by accident, on Friday the 13th! You know how much I love old horror movies. Naming him after Jason was a must.


Speaking of which, I’m still working on developing that horror board game based on old 80’s slasher flicks. I’ve branched out from that and started publishing Dungeons and Dragons modules on DM’s Guild. I’m trying to develop my own brand and start my own company. You should check out my work! But yeah…I’m still into all that nerdy stuff – D&D, comic books (5,000 and counting), video games. You know me. Plus, I’m about to graduate with a Writing Studies major, so creating this stuff is right down my alley. It lets me set free all the crazy, creative goblins banging drums in my head. I’ve also started to write my own collection of sci-fi short stories centered around the evolution of AI and how intelligent robots will eventually be considered their own “race.” I’ve taken a lot of courses involving race relations just to see what I could apply.


Geez. Look at me rambling on! I’m probably boring you to death! Plus, I don’t want to drop all my tidbits of exciting experiences on you at one shot – if you wanna hear about all the bands I worked with (Fallout Boy was SO nice!) or the stuff that happened when I worked as a nurse at the animal hospital (a Great Dane pulled me around the office like a water-skier!), you’ll have to come see me in the MIMJ office (McNairy 210). I’m there Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-4. I can’t wait to see you!


Matt
