The Daily Bird

I’m Thomas L. Drake,  I'm an avid reader with inspirations from, Robert E. Howard, Cormac McCarthy, and Hunter S. Thompson. I’m a hard worker with a love for writing and a hatred for inaccuracies in writing. My interest in journalism started when I stumbled on the Guardian news site on an iPad when I was twelve. Ever since that I’ve had an interest for journalism that went in waves in my life until I reached high school. Now I have a love for it. Ever since I was born I had a thirst for knowledge. To learn about the animals in my backyard, to the history of our world. Which makes me strive for worthy and factual stories in journalism.  “Whatever in creation exists without my knowledge exists without my consent.” spoken by Judge Holden from Blood Meridian:Or the Evening Redness in the West.
