So brave! I'm not sure I would have had the courage to take such a step without some kind of safety net at my destination. His second week there he landed a great job, which he will start next Monday. A lot of people criticize modern technology, but without it we would not be able to check in with him through IM a couple of times a day, or reach him quickly on his cell phone (included in anytime/anywhere minutes) if we need to.
So, hats off to you, Anthony (TONY), for knowing you want and going for it! Ah, to be 21 again!
