I’m so proud of Our Graduate


In 2011 my dad took my kids on a trip to University of Connecticut. We  had no clue that would be the place one of them would end up going to school.Look at how young they were.




This photo is from five years ago. The start of his Journey. I was smiling yet I was nervous. I swear I didn't really want him to go. Although. I was okay knowing that he was still close to me. 
 I remember literally arguing with him:because he wanted to go to school clear across the county just about,  I think it Arizona, Florida,and and I wanna say California. 

Eventually setting his sites on the Bachelor of Arts Program at the University of Connecticut.Which we were okay with. Bring that he was much closer. And he was very interested in the Digital Media and Design Program that they had.



The last one is the best one yet .This is his/our final year. Yes,our because we got through this together. No graduation picture(no barber or Graduation 👨‍🎓 ). Thanks to this Pandemic!You guys will get one when this over(a Graduation picture that is) . 


To sum this all up he is a 2020 Graduate from the University Of Connecticut  Undergraduate With a Bachelors Degree  Digital Media and Design Major Web/Interactive Media Design Concentration.


Congratulations : Mr. Juwan G.Dumas


(I chose to use this photo because it was taken on one of his recent adventures;and he wasn't as serious)



Update: If you’d like to send him a monetary gift for his accomplishment his cashapp is $CydCt

Being that there wasn’t a traditional Graduation celebration due to this pandemic. I see that other people are making their information available. So, I’m making his available as well. Thank you in advance!

Getting Closer to the Were I Need to Be

Hello Hello Hello!
  
    It’s been a little while since I’ve typed up a blog. 

When this Covid19 came about, I started having real bad anxiety, which cut into my creativity. Which I know I shouldn’t have allowed; but it happen, and I’m working through it.
   
 I’ve been thinking long and hard about what it was I wanted to come back with.  And thanks to a very good friend of mind I figured it out. 

  And I’d like to first say thank you to him. Yes, him and no he’s not a boyfriend and has never been one. Let me start by clarifying that first. We grew up together and he’s actually one of the few people I can really consider a friend/ family!

 Anyway I’ve applied for disability in October of 2018. I got denied. Then had a reconsideration and got denied for that. And I was finally able to get a hearing. 
 
 Mind you up until a few months ago I had no income. And I’m living off of $219 + food stamps(don’t ask how I’ve been doing it I’m still not sure). If it wasn’t for my family and a few friends(Thank you guys again!)I don’t know how I’d be getting by. I truly thank the man above for them!

 I believe the hearing went well. Although there were moments that I was a little skeptical. I’m hopeful that it’ll turn out for the best. 

 Now I have 30 days to get them paperwork from my therapist. And I pray the final decision won’t take that long after.

  Yes, I see a therapist. I’ve been seeing her for a few months now and she’s the bomb!  I’m not sure I’d have been able to get past these anxiety attacks without her.

  With that being said keep me in your prayers. As I am doing the same for you all!  Hopefully I’ll be back sooner with more content. And thanks again my friend for the push. I appreciate it!
