I'm a 38-year-old kid who doesn't know what he wants to do with his life.  Well, I want to write and take pictures for National Geographic, but they aren't hiring right now. I grew up in southwest Georgia and went to a small private school named Westwood in Camilla, Georgia from Kindergarten to Twelfth grade.  I first moved away from home when I graduated high school in 1995 went to school at Valdosta State University for a couple of years majored in Environmental Geography.  I then transferred to The University of Georgia in Athens and finished my degree in Geography because I love studying the world and it's people.  There were not many jobs available for Geography graduates, so I spent some time in Florida and waited tables for a while on the beautiful Gulf Coast.  However, I was drawn back to Athens.  So, I moved back to Athens in 2003 and earned my Master's in Teaching degree.  I then taught sixth grade Earth Science and Social Studies for about nine years up until the end of 2013.  I am now seeking a new career because teaching is the hardest and most stressful job you will ever experience....and it kept getting worse each year.  I love to travel, take pictures, write, hang out and eat....you know just normal stuff.  I love college football, that is a pretty odd thing for someone like me to say.  You will see what I'm talking about when you read my first blog.  This is all new to me, so I know I have already ticked someone off, and I do apologize....I just don't know what I'm doing.  For example, this is the third time I have written this bio, so I'm not sure why it is not showing up, but it wasn't there.  So, I just did it again.....and now I am going to hit save like I have been doing!!!!!!
