For the PenPals project this month, I’m corresponding with Robert Silvernail. You can follow along with our conversation here.

Here’s a sneak peak at our second exchange, as summarized by ChatGPT:

Robert apologizes for the delay in responding, attributing it to a busy month filled with training, conferences, and a feud with local squirrels. He reflects on the nostalgic aspect of letter writing, recalling late-night discussions about tech, Scouts, and other topics. In response to Jarrod’s previous question about transitioning between organizations of different sizes, Robert shares his experiences, emphasizing the skills acquired during his time with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). He highlights the challenges and learnings, particularly in time and people management, which have proven valuable in his current role as a Technology Coordinator. Robert encourages Jarrod to pursue volunteer opportunities and shares details about his ongoing involvement with the Ionia Free Fair, including network expansion plans and the search for a new ticketing system. Despite the delayed response, Robert expresses interest in continuing the letter exchange. In Jarrod’s response, he forgives the timing delay and shares his own squirrel-related challenges. He agrees with Robert’s sentiments about the BSA experience and acknowledges the valuable skills gained. Jarrod expresses interest in joining a band again and encourages Robert to explore his storytelling skills, suggesting using his personalized domain as an outlet. He looks forward to continuing the letter exchange.

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