Perhaps it would be nice to have this recorded somewhere … a terse history of my life so far.Continue reading “A Brief History of Jacob Haas”
It was around 11:30 in the evening when I finally reached the perfect balance of drunk and tired to sit on the couch with a keyboard in my lap and start writing.
