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 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.
