Thanks for coming by! My name is Shawn D’Aguanno, and I am an Arizona native. I live my life to the fullest every day, and love to share my experiences with others. I’ve always considered myself a different kind of Jack of Trades. I have an unyielding drive to try and master everything I learn, and to understand the subject completely. I will always love being a student. However, more than anything, I love being in nature, and relentlessly seek adventure. I’m not much of a TV watcher, and I don’t follow sports at all. Instead, I love to talk about science, technology, and art.
I currently work for GoDaddy in the Hosting Support Department, fixing broken internet things. I also volunteer when I have the time. Before that, I was a firearms instructor. I’ve also been a bartender, worked in a grocery store, and ran my own design studio. I like to wear lots of hats!
On a different note, I have this thing called Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment. It’s pretty lame, and makes it hard to remember things. It also puts me at a very high risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia. The ultimate purpose of this journal is to help me remember.
What started off as a little side project has since become a way for me to share and keep these memories of mine. For a long time, I hid from it and did my best to hide it from others. Over the years, I’ve grown to be more open about it. Resigned to what my fate is, and keeping this website, has given me something to keep me from worrying. With that said, I’d like to share this song with you, as they sang it better than I ever could have said it.
“Mind over matter don’t matter when you’re mad as a hatter.”
