Joined 4 years ago from Athens, Georgia USA
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!!!!!!

AA to most conjures up images of a group who helps, but not for the victims who have escaped, they tell stories of abuse, torture, trauma and fear that lasts forever from these dangerous cults.
