Hey gang, I know I haven't been posting in the last few months, but I thought I'd drop an update on what has been going on.

I actually have been living out of my car for the most part for the last couple of years after a falling out with my family (not going to share that story here, if you want to know about that drop me a DM on Facebook or something). I have been working on bettering myself, especially after being diagnosed with high-functioning autism last spring. I held a job at the Norfolk Marriott last summer but things didn't work out with that and I was back on the unemployment line. After spending the winter in a hotel thanks to the city of Chesapeake, I moved out after funding ran out for that program. On the plus side though, I was offered and accepted a seasonal position at Ocean Breeze Waterpark in Virginia Beach (I get a couple of free passes a week if anyone wants to bring their family down and keep cool this summer), and Ill be looking for more permanent work while I'm at it. I found an awesome new church home at Liberty Live Greenbrier (where the campus pastor is former Flames goalie Dalton Stoltz) and hopefully I can get plugged in there this summer.

For those of you who have been praying for me, I sincerely appreciate it as I have grown quite a bit in what has been a very challenging season of life for me. Hopefully things are finally on the up and up and I cen get back on my feet.

Thanks guys. As a side note, I do have a GoFundMe set up that has been a saving grace for me while I live in my car:
