It's been a rough year... and if I'm being honest nothing has gone as planned so far. I lost my mom about 3 and a half weeks ago which was completely unexpected... She was only 58 years old and still seemed to have plenty of days ahead of her but life is strange like that and tomorrow isn't promised to anyone.

I forgot to post my latest YouTube vlog on here last week before heading to the Big Android BBQ, so in case you missed it you can feel free to check it out below.
My ability to go this event was touch and go for awhile but in the end I was able to manage and get out there. It was an amazing experience where I got to learn a lot and catch up with old friends as well as finally meet a few people I'd been talking to online for years face to face. I even had a few people at the BBQ that came up to me and complimented my site which was totally unexpected and very flattering.Read More
