March 11th marks exactly six months since I packed my life into my car and moved across the country to chase my dream and start a business. I’m loving it, but it hasn’t been easy. To stretch the little money I came out with (read: open credit card limit), I’ve been sleeping on an air mattress. I’ve been eating lots of PB&J (like, a lot). I didn’t fly home for Thanksgiving. I missed Christmas too because I couldn’t afford it. It’s been a long time since I’ve been home…
THAT’S RIGHT! And I’m not afraid to admit it! #JakeMissesMommy!
On my birthday, instead of presents, I’m counting on you to pony up like $5 or whatever you can afford to help me get back to Pennsylvania.
Throw in a little extra and I might make sure to pay you a visit when I get back—maybe even buy you a beer with your own money
