These are some things I’ve built.
Wow, I’ve accomplished so much and I’m only a fully grown adult.
The following is a list of things I’ve built. It is remarkable considering my age (24 years) and aptitudes (average adult cognitively and physically).
- A sterling reputation in the MotoX/BigAir/Christian riders community. Who knew that my degrees in sport photography and youth services would ever mean so much to so many? When I graduated from RealSchool.com University in 2015, all I cared about was plowing cow and getting enough scratch together to lease a gently pre-owned Hummer H3 with skulls on the hubcaps. Then, I met Bonk. Not even two years later, I’m leading Good Friday devotions at center dirt on the track where Tink Ritchum won four consecutive Jesus Cup trophies.
- Quite the online presence. I love brands. Have you heard of Burt’s Bees? It always has a yellow tube. That’s called brands, and that’s what I’m doing in the digital world. When I graduated from RealSchool.com University in 2015, I couldn’t tell a share from a favorite. It just wasn’t a part of the pedagogy. Then, I met Lantz. Not even two years later, I’m at 42 on Instagram, my dog’s Instagram is at 80, and I’ve got a handful of the enlightened subscribing to my video diaries.
- A life of joy and laughs with my new love, Zen. Have I known her for long? Just six months, but I’ve already helped her through a bad haircut and we’ve decided to call each other “partner” instead of “boyfriend” and “girlfriend.” When I was temporarily suspended from RealSchool.com University in 2013 for an off-campus incident (I was a different person then), I was with my ex, Bakeley, and we were eating shells and cheese out of the same pot every night. That’s not even a metaphor. Then I met Pistil, and he introduced me to Zen. Not even seven months later, I’m doing barre three afternoons a week and I carry a sketch of a potential tattoo on a napkin in my wallet.
- A cherry dinette set that has been sanded and stained to a smooth, warm sheen. My life today is in a state of harmony. Among the many things that I have built in my first 24 years on God’s snowglobe, this sturdy Shaker-style dinette set which comfortably seats 10 with the leaves in is near the top of the list. I want for nothing, except maybe a new fender for my Yamaha lol. Before I enrolled full-time at RealSchool.com University, I couldn’t even build a bear rofl. Then I met Jonathan and Drew Scott. Not even a week later, I’m finishing demo on this reno and coming home blissfully exhausted to eat banh mi with Zen at this dependable, unpretentious furnishing.
