I’m 41 years old, married, five kids. I live in southern North Carolina near the beach. I’m a Christian but not religious. I work. I’m a student. I can drive anything on the road, from motorcycle to 18-wheeler. I spend time and money on music, movies, books, exercise, food and drink. I’d like to figure out how to live. I was sick for most of 2016, and I’m currently using this space to document my weight-loss efforts.
