This blog is a catalog of memories, missives, and matters of the mind that have transpired over the course of Quincy’s gap year and post-college explorations. It serves as a physical database of his experiences during this time in addition to his reflections and thoughts directly following these moments. While it is mostly a way for family and friends to follow the journey and get to live vicariously through him, it will also be a concise recount of the many activities and adventures of the year for Quincy to look back on.
