I grew up in very rural South Carolina, where I listened to the Dead Kennedys on headphones while exploring the woods and being chased by livestock, wild animals, and imaginary monsters.
I chased them back. Still do.
Spent a bunch of time in Minneapolis/St.Paul, then a bunch more in Savannah. Did some stuff, didn't do other stuff. Have a lot more stuff to do.
Now, regarding my name: it's "meh HITta bell." Or just plain "Bel" for short. I generally go by Bel, even though that's a lot daintier-sounding than suits me.
