On September 10, 2017, the other members of Hello Stranger and I finished recording our as-yet-untitled debut full-length album. Exciting, to say the least. Why does that mean I'm starting this pseudo-diary-style blog right now? The simple answer is, better late than never. But in the past week, I’ve also moved into a new apartment, so a lot of stuff seems to be happening. At the same time, my day job has remained about as soul-crushingly awful as usual, with no end in sight.
