I was criminally sheltered when I was young. Like, not “criminally” as a hyperbole. Literally so sheltered that it should have been against the law.
And while being sheltered has been devastating for most aspects of my life (including, but not limited to, meeting girls, giving public speeches, knowing sexual innuendos so I don’t have to pretend, and just generally navigating my everyday life), there’s one important silver lining: I can now take this crippling inexperience and provide others insight into different facets of Flagstaff from the perspective of a complete newborn baby.

I, Shaun El-Ters, am a creature of habit. When I find a restaurant I like, I go there every day (and order the same thing) until I run it into the ground and never want to go back.
