For the Letters project this month, I’m corresponding with Jason Becker, the instigator of this whole series of projects around the web.

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

In Jason’s second letter, he shares heartfelt details about his pets, particularly focusing on Gracie, a 13-year-old Pomeranian-Beagle mix, whose health is declining, and Brandy, a terrier mix. He provides a brief history of his dogs, including Martina, his childhood dog. Jason then explains his role in an education-finance technology” company, emphasizing the challenges of adapting financial software for schools’ unique needs. He reflects on the unique experience of being part of a startup from its early stages, expressing gratitude for the diverse phases he has witnessed and the skills acquired. Jason discusses the evolving nature of his work and explores the idea of bringing passions together for success. In his response, Jarrod shares stories about his own pets, a Golden Retriever named Phin, a Maine Coon cat named Ollie, and a turtle named Remus. Jarrod delves into the intersection of his interests in the outdoors and technology, expressing gratitude for Jason’s insights and seeking advice on blending his passions on his blog. He also provides a glimpse into his work as a mountain guide and how he balances guiding clients with personal outdoor adventures, inviting Jason to share his fears and coping mechanisms in return.

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