A history in Sleeveless T-shirts: 12-13 years old with an early girlfriend.
This was right around the time I started playing guitar and jamming with my best friend, Brandon. We used to go watch our respected lady friends play softball at the park. Hope was always such a sweetheart. Growing up in Murphy/Hiwassee Dam/Andrews if you were a male with earrings you got used to being called “Fag” or people saying, “Nice Queerring.” Got into a lot of scuffles over all that. Those instances helped me become the smartass I am today. I used to skateboard a lot back then (hence the Angel Boy T-shirt).
