Why write this blog? Fear robbed me of being able to express myself during one of the most defining moments in my life. That’s the moment I realized that the permanent pain of regret hurts way more than the temporary pain of rejection.
How do I approach the edge of the social comfort zone? To overcome social fear, I partake in social experiments like Rejection Therapy and Social Skydiving. I also talk to random strangers and participate in other social activities that help both myself and others.
What would you get out of it? Helping you step outside of your own social comfort zone by being more direct and honest with the world around you.

As of 2/18/13, I publish articles that only 1000+ words long. This means I can have more of a free range about when I publish. The weekly deadline has been giving me immense writer’s block.
