I don't even really have an apartment. I have a family out here that kind of took me in like three years ago. I call them my California parents.

But the rewards on the other end, as far as the places I've been and the people I've met, are incredible.

It was a choice that I made. I can be a real adult later in life and sit in an office, if that's what I decide to do.
