“Bang, bang, I’m calling your name…”
Hello, world. Gloria and I celebrated our Traditional Engagement on August 8th, 2015. This story was 4 years in the making. We first met through a mutual friend Gladys’s birthday celebration in March of 2011.
Little did I know that this meeting would turn into something much greater…
From UT graduation to UT graduation
The photos from the ceremony can be found here: Trendy Africa: Gloria and Aaron’s Traditional Engagement. Thanks to all that came out to support or send their blessings from afar! In particular, thanks to Clayton, Seth, and Kendrick for all of the help at the ceremony. It wouldn’t have gone even remotely smooth without those three.
Spring 2011 to fall 2015 has been a wonderful journey, and I thank everyone that has been a part of it, especially My Love Gloria. It has been a really special journey, and I know it’s just the beginning. Upward, ever upward…
As of summer 2015, I stepped down from my full time position to become a part time contractor. It was a very risky move, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to try to make my own apps and help others make theirs (Hakoware), and it has been eating away at me for years. I felt like if I didn’t try this now, then when would I have the chance? Win, lose, or draw, I know I will gain from this time. It will be in mobile experience, getting a piece of myself back, and rebuilding relationships that have withered because of our day to day struggles and stresses.
Song of the post: Janelle Monae feat. Miguel – PrimeTime. This is from her album “The Electric Lady”, and we made sure it played at the ceremony. Until next time everyone. I’ll have a lot more from the last few months.
