Small Short Update

Good morning, afternoon or evening, no matter what time of day it is my hope is that it is a good time.

The past few weeks have been rather stressful and hectic, I've spent much of my time in worry over a job opportunity which I talked to you all about in my last email. After two weeks of eagerly awaiting a phone call, email, or any other form of contact from the company that would ultimately never arrive, I was left at the end of my rope, stagnation began to eat away at my hope and drive to do anything. By the end of the week, desperate for some form of lateral motion, I traveled over to the local community college here in Gainesville, FL -- Santa Fe College -- and began inquiring about what it would take for me to enroll as a full time student for the first time in nearly 8 years.

Giving up on the idea of returning to Kentucky on any sort of permanent basis saddened me more than any other decision I've had to make in recent memory, however, even in the midst of my grief I felt a great sense of purpose and relief at finally having made a solid decision to move forward rather than sitting deliberating on the "what ifs" in life.

I am now enrolled full time at Santa Fe and begin classes on the 24th of August, yet things are still very uncertain and scary for me right now. I have yet to secure solid housing plans, a personal mode of transportation, or any form of communication other than the internet (phones are expensive...). I have great faith however, that these things will come with time, that I am not on this path alone. I ask that you continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I move into this new phase of my lifes journey.

Thank you all for your support and love
