blogmainv2It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door.  You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.  ~ Bilbo Baggins

The past 10 years of my life have been truly a whirlwind of adventures.   Within this blog I will touch on some of the places I’ve been, people I’ve met, and choices (and the mistakes) I’ve made that have helped to shape me into the man I am today.

My name is Andrew Born, once I settled for the life I was given, now I find myself fighting for the life I deserve.  A year ago I gave myself an ultimatum: Do whatever it takes to return to school before your 30th birthday.  I sit here now, days left in 2015, accepted into a difficult program 1500+ miles from the place I’ve spent the last 23 years of my life living (more or less), ready to take on whatever life can throw at me.

If you seek inspiration to take on a challenge in your life, you may find it here.  Also within these pages you will find an abundance of recipes, life lessons, changes, beards, and more.  I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
