i just found out on fb that one of my cousins is on his way back to this area. he said after a night in a motel he's moving in to the urban ministries.
hmmm. i suppose under other circumstances one would invite this person to stay w/ you until they got back on their feet right?
well--said person is 36 years old, just finished culinary school (which his folks paid for) and is leaving his current location because the girl he moved there for dumped him. said person is also the one who stole money from our grandma. he's been in jail. he worked and traveled w/ a carnival (before going to culinary school). there is a toddler in another state that might be his (he says yes, my aunt says no). this guy is incredibly smart, could have done so much w/ his life.
apparently he is not welcome in az where his parents just moved. they "tough loved" him several years ago and even though they paid for his recent schooling, he was allowed to visit them on a limited time basis. apparently he is not going back to the mother of what he claims as his child.
part of me feels sorry for him---36 years old and going nowhere. part of me is like--dude! wtf!! pull your shit together already!
