Hey guys! It’s been awhile since I did any kind of blogging or vlogging so I decided to peek my head in to tell you guys what’s been going on in my life.

Before I begin though, I want to send my condolences to the family of fellow YouTuber and J-vlogger extraordinaire Rodger Swan, who passed away at the age of 23. I’m not sure exactly what he died from (some say it was a stomach condition that progressed to cardiac arrest), but I’ll be sure to tell you guys when I know more about the situation. R.I.P. Rodger!!

Changing gears, I’d like to talk about what I’ve been up to lately. As you guys might know, I’ve been seriously considering joining the Navy due to the local job shortages and lack of college options. Now, I feel that I’m ready to join the services!

However, when I went up to MEPS on Monday to fill out all the paperwork and get examined, they said that I was over their weight requirements. They gave me 30 days to lose the weight and after which, I’ll be reweighed to see if I qualify.

Ever since I got home from MEPS, I’ve been working out and sticking with a strict diet and so far, I’ve lost 3 lbs. My goal is to lose at least 15 lbs by February 25th.

After my stepdad got wind that I failed the weigh-in, he’s been incredibly pissed off at me. So much so that he’s threatening to kick me out again. In order to prevent this, I’ve sold all my guitars and equipment in order to pay for February’s rent. I’m hoping that after I pass my next weigh-in, he’ll take it easy on me. Of course I’ll still be looking for a job, but at least my days here will be numbered so he doesn’t have to worry about me living here forever.

I really hope I get a job soon so that I can pay for the upkeep of TheAndySan.com. It’s not too costly (about $109 a year), but when you don’t have a job and your only source of income is $25+ a month, it’s hard to save up when you really need that $25+ a month for gas money to go out and apply to all these different places.

But anyhoo, I’d better get going. I hope to blog more, but we’ll see what happens! See you next time!
