Behind the Source

Jacob Messing here, I’m the writer behind Maintaining Expectation. I began this blog as a way to document my thoughts and create a broader portfolio for myself. At the age of 22, I’m currently studying journalism at Oakland University of Rochester, Mich.

My girlfriend, Dakota and myself.

My girlfriend Dakota and myself.

My life is built around hockey and writing, while I also enjoy reading, watching sports and spending time with my lovely girlfriend, Dakota. I’m a Detroit Red Wings contributing writer for The Hockey Writers. If you love hockey, check it out.

Influenced by writing at a young age, I picked up a pencil and crafted endless stories, some purely imaginative, others stemming from real life experiences from both myself and others I have had the fortune to know.

You can subscribe to Maintaining Expectation or follow me on Twitter. Try both, actually.
