Hi, I’m Matt Paolelli! I originally began this blog when I was 29 years old to chronicle the start of my fourth decade and all of the huge life events that might transpire in this exciting new phase of life. Turns out I was right. You’ll find posts on buying my first condo, switching jobs, actually turning 30, getting married, buying a house, and just some random musings thrown in for good measure.
At the beginning of 2015, I was diagnosed with classic Hodgkin’s lymphoma and this blog became a place for me to document my treatment as well as all the related experiences and emotions that go along with looking cancer squarely in the eye and kicking it in the face. Click on the My Cancer Fight button at the top of the page to browse all my #DownWithLumpy posts, or read this post to start at the beginning.
Oh, and now I have two kids! You can read my other blog–Dad Has A Blog–to follow along with that adventure!
If you’d like to contact me, you can drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading!
