I have always been a Writer. a Story-teller. a Creative. I remember my first "novel" that I created in middle school called "William Dandy School Dayz", that strictly consisted of pre-puberty crushes and the day to day struggles of my friends and I. I still have all of the plays, poems, and short- stories that I wrote in my Creative Writing class that were filled with teenage love, rebellion, and a sprinkle of B2K fan fiction. But once I got to college, I quickly lost my love for writing. It became too forced, too structured, and it no longer flowed from the soul. After years of ignoring the wanting in my spirit to write for leisure, I've finally taken the leap to share with the world my love for written expression. Different By Design will consist of all the beautiful, witty, intelligent, hilarious, and profound thoughts that I have on a plethora of topics. All I ask of you, my readers, is that you use my site to explore, learn, and even engage yourself. This is for those that are an anomaly to the word. This is for those who are DIFFERENT BY DESIGN.
