I feel like I keep explaining myself, either on camera or in articles, as to my recent whereabouts. It seems to me that lately, every time I try to commit myself to my creative work, things happen in my physical life that effect the amount of time I’m able to dedicate to my digital life. If you’re a religious person, you’ll probably claim it’s Satan trying to thwart my destiny and throw me off course. If you’re not religious, then you’ll probably claim its merely the circumstance of life.
Regardless of your inclination, it’s quite obvious that garbage happens.
My life lately has been a roller coaster. At one moment, I thought I was good. Then I was knocked for a loop. Then, after a few breathless moments, I feel I am finally back at peace with the world once again. Over the past few months I, along with several others from my old profession, have experienced anxiety, betrayal, rejection, uncertainty, and varying amounts of emotional abuse. Fortunately, my season of pain resolved in validation, hope, and sheer joy.
At this point, I am not at liberty to share details regarding my recent exit from the classroom, as any revelations on my part would likely negatively effect many wonderful colleagues whom I still deeply love and care about. Suffice it to say, there was no professional misconduct or inappropriate behavior on my part that caused my exit, merely an unannounced change in vision and direction at the school I once considered my community.
Over the past two months, I have had plenty of opportunity to re-discover myself. I made myself take a vacation I had been wanting for so long. I’ve found a new profession that I’ve always had a passion for. I have met many wonderful new people who are equally passionate about the things I love. And for once, I’m not concerned about the scrutiny and backbiting I encountered whilst in the classroom.
Today, I work under contract as a customer service agent for a major U.S. airline out of my home station in Melbourne, Florida. If you’ve been watching my YouTube uploads, you’ve likely figured out by now which major airlines I’m referring to. Nevertheless, my new job is in addition to my personal business I operate as a content creator and performer, and thanks to this new day job, I now have more time to work on creative projects.
I guess my primary objective for writing this post is to let you know that I’m still here. I’m doing okay. Life is good. I will also take the opportunity to reassert my promise to produce more amazing content for your guys to read and watch on my website and on social media.
If you have comments, questions, or just want to drop me a line, send my team an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will reply to as many emails as I can.
