So, I really, really like the assembly of numbers that is “1016.” It’s part of my instagram name, my Twitter name, a couple of old blogs that I’ve had and it’s tattooed on my ankle. People often ask why I have 1016 everywhere. Short answer: It’s my birthday.
Long answer: It’s my birthday. It’s also National Boss’s Day, of which I am one, since birth.
I like the way it looks and it’s more distinct than my birth year, which I share with approximately a billion people, most of them named Ashley or Michael.
So, Happy 1016!
