Hi I’m Cory 👋

Every year I make a New Years resolution to share more. And every year I fail.

Sharing isn’t hard for me. I used to do it all the time. In the early days I put every photo on Facebook. I was uploading Instagram photos before most people had smartphones.

What is difficult for me is consumption. Especially of the mindless variety. Scrolling through infinite algorithmic feeds optimized for negativity and outrage. It can really wear a person down and I’ve wanted nothing to do with it.

In lieu of a personal social media presence, I’ve mostly stuck to texts and calls, but I often find myself wishing I could share moments with everyone all at once. Especially those I don’t chat with on a regular basis.

Here you’ll find short stories and excerpts from my daily life. My hope is that it makes us feel connected and gives you a little window into my ever-evolving world.

If anything resonates, don’t hesitate to reach out.

I didn’t have time to write a long letter, so I wrote a short one instead.
