What We're Up to Now
After living with my sister and her dog Katie and cat Scout for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years, Scooter and I have moved in with my mentor, David, and his husband Jeff. They are great friends and have kindly taken us in knowing all of Scooter’s special care needs. While I’m responsible for basically 100% of Scooter’s care when I’m available to do it, Jeff has learned to take care of Scooter’s bathroom needs, which has allowed me some personal freedoms that I haven’t had in quite some time.
We're still adjusting to our new life, but things are going well so far! The first year of residency is known to be a very difficult one, and I will likely encounter many personal and academic challenges in the near future. Scooter and I have as solid of a support system as we have ever had, so I feel confident that, just like with everything else before, we can get through anything together.
