For the PenPals project this month, I’m corresponding with Robert Silvernail. You can follow along with our conversation here and check out his site at ultrasexybeast.net.

Here’s a teaser of our first exchange, as summarized by ChatGPT:

Robert expresses surprise and flattery at being invited to participate in the project. He shares a glimpse of his background, including growing up in Michigan, working in technology, and returning to the education sector as a Technology Coordinator. Robert details his recent volunteer work for the Free Fair Association, managing wireless networks and playing a crucial role in the World’s Largest Free Fair.” He includes images of the fair and signs off with a reference to his adventures in education and carnivals. In Jarrod’s response, he acknowledges the unusual dynamic of writing letters to a longtime friend and reminisces about their shared history. He expresses gratitude for Robert’s role in encouraging his interest in technology and reflects on their early communication methods. Jarrod discusses Robert’s inclination toward both big and small projects, seeking insights into the conscious or unconscious decision-making behind these choices. He shares his thoughts on potential volunteer work, mentioning interest in becoming a Climbing Merit Badge counselor and exploring opportunities with local organizations. Jarrod encourages Robert to share more Free Fair escapades, memorable experiences, and future goals in subsequent letters.

If you’d like to be a penpal for this project, please reach out! I’d love to get you on the schedule.
