Ok, so thanks to Jeremy technically I am a Thiel now but you get the point!
It's funny how moving away from my family has made us all closer. I moved to Texas 7 years ago today! Lots of things have changed since my move but one of the most profound changes is that I TALK to my family now. It's so easy to just take your friends and family for granted when they are just around the corner or only a car trip away. It's also easy not to really 'talk' to them but just 'be around' them instead.
