Andrew has finished high school, finally. He took some time off to learn mechanics and due to scheduling issues was just able to finish his GED. We felt it was a good idea for him to actually do the exam, though many people told us it was not necessary. (It did end up costing a little more than $240, but we feel that it was money worth spent.) Since he was homeschooled this was a good way to end that chapter of his life as an alternative to a traditional cap and gown affair. Andrew is not much for sentimental actions nor pomp and ceremony, so he was content to do the test and be finished with high school.
In just a few weeks Andrew will be traveling to the U.S. to explore the next step in his life. He is not sure what that will be yet, but he is excited to try out as many things as possible. He will be in Oregon for a few months. After that time will tell where he ends up.
Andrew is a relatively private person. He does not interact with social media that much and has his own interests (mostly in the real world.) I say this as a way of explaining why you do not see or hear from him much on the interwebs. If you popped in in person, well then you would get to know him better.
