Side Note

A lot of my friends and family have expressed concerns over how I have kinda thrown my education to the back seat for now. I want to make it clear that I am going to finish school. I am out here doing something that truly makes me feel good. It kills me to see this part of the country get screwed over again. I can't imagine how these people feel after finally getting over Katrina and now being hit by this, it makes me so upset. This is like watching a train wreck in slow motion, we don't know when the devastation is going to end. I am not out here for the money or because I think this job is great (cause this job is horrible, it reaffirms in me everyday how important a college education really is). I am out here for those who's livelihoods are being destroyed and all they can do is watch in horror. I feel like the rest of this country doesn't even seem to care; this is a losing battle that we can't afford to give up on. I love my coast, and I am ready to defend it.


  1. There are a whole lot of folks I worry about, in terms of what on earth will become of them...

    You are not one of them, Will. You are a remarkable, adventurous, good guy -- and I'm proud of you.

  2. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you're doing. I also really really really appreciate your blog (as do some of my friends). Life itself is a pursuit of education, anyone telling to you to stop what you're doing in order to get educated must not understand that.

  3. You do you Will. You always have, and you are better for it. Keep up the good work!
