Today I begin a journey. After 25 years of working hard at dead end jobs I have returned to college in order to provide a less than bleak future. Doing so while raising and homeschooling 3 children. Two teenage boys and a young daughter. I have spent the last 25 years as a blue collar laborer and have wore out my body.
I plan to tell my story and provide insights into what it is like for a 40+ year old man to make such a dramatic change in direction with life. I hope that I can look back on this and see that I have grown to be what my younger self had imagined life could be. If I am able to provide some encouragement to others along the way then it would be great. At least I will be able to document this journey and preserve it for my children and hopefully grandchildren.
