About The Author
Alie Teachman is Editorial Manager at The Reckoner. She made her entrance into the world pink, screaming, and knowing that all she wanted in life was a puppy. Thus she spent the first ten years of her existence: petitioning her parents and bombarding them with low quality PowerPoints. It was only once she had attained a dog of her very own that she began to develop other interests. She started to play instruments and sports. She learned how to play hide and seek, and how to climb trees. All in all, she had your average childhood.
