Being welcomed back (and some other things)
Thursday, December 15, 2016
It has been quite a while since I had "good enough" internet to get on and chat/blog. Nearly a year ago I was living up in the mountains of NC (which is now all burnt down), just beginning to get my legs and mind working on this site. Now, odd enough, I'm back on the site just beginning to get my future started.
Many things have happened this year. I went back "home" to face a few demons. Yep, I took on my mom and faced my sisters' family. Despite not having the connection we should have had and many 'fights', I was able to get on talking terms with my mom and sisters. Something that I am now deeply grateful for. I even managed to partner up and start a small business with my sister! At least until the mold hit my apartment... and my sister moved on to a new future (which I'm happy of!). We 99.9% of all our belongings --including our traveling gear. We tried our best to get a new apartment but we kept on getting denied for reasons we still don't know. Man... was that a blow. I have to admit I got pretty down into depression on that. Until my biological dad called me and offered us a room in his apartments (about a 15 hour bus ride away). We were, and still are thrilled, to be living with him (this is the father I wanted to know but never did). Before we left my mom's hometown, my fiancee and I finally got married (spontaneously by a pastor who felt the call of God).
We spent a good time catching up with my lost family in our new hometown of Kansas City. I found out a few things about myself and the troubles of my family, such as our struggles with depression and the problems of a divorce has on children.
My wife has now got a wonderful job as a bus driver! She loves it and is always telling me crazy stories of how those kids are coming up with funny ways of dealing with her.
I have been looking for work, but I'm finding it quite hard transferring my contracting experience over to wage work. I've no luck yet on snagging a job. Pretty much been dropped by the hiring agency, cheated twice, and denied more times then I care for. However, with encouragement from my family, love from my wife, and my hope that the Lord has a plan for me, I will keep on keeping on.
