SOUL

Mac Miller 1992

Mac Miller Tribute by Andrealocel. on Dribbble

“Well, I was raised Jewish, but I went to a Catholic school, so I learned a lot about religion, and it has always kind of infatuated me. I’m just very interested in it. But, as far as my personal views, I believe that there’s something out there, but I don’t believe that anyone knows what it is.”

*Be a believer. No matter what religion you partake in, simply believe that there’s a higher power.

BONUS: Katey Sagal 1954

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
