Default Update on my apprenticeship (6 months)

I am learning so much as an apprentice at All or Nothing. In the 6 months I have been an apprentice I have seen my artwork grow by leaps and bounds, with teachers like Jace Masula, John Lloyd, Tony Mancia and Pablo (yes pablo) this was no surprise. I have also learned about teamwork, friends and family, this was a surprise. I would like to elaborate on this but I cant put it into words.

When I started I was an arrogant recovering drug addict with a very sorted past who never stayed on a job more than 3 months. I would like to think I have become a better person in the past 6 months and more than anything I know that now I have a future.

Today I am going over another hurdle my car is broken down, blown head gasket and bent valve so far. As you know an apprentice is not paid so I am at my parents house working on my car daylight to dark until I can get it fixed. I feel like I am letting the team down every minute I am not at the studio, that is a new feeling for me.

This apprenticeship is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. All or Nothing has given me the opportunity to earn a future and in the process has taught me about myself and truly has changed me as a person.

I will be back asap guys.

i've been down the hard road myself...and i had a very similar situation when my car broke down and it cost more to fix than what the car was worth so i just ditched the car...no transportation and forced me to use the damn bus...very humbling to say the least. these moments in life suck...but they taught me never take for granted the small things in life.

keep your head up corey and keep workn hard like you always do...hope to see you guys soon at the shop.
