My name is Raymond Hawkins. I started blogging off and on in 2008, both as a way to keep my friends and family updated on my life and as a place to share thoughts with the world.
I am a Christian, and I have been married to my beautiful wife since July of 2011. We had our first baby in September 2014, and I love being a father! I am the 4th born of 7 children. Growing up, we were home-schooled until we started our own boarding school in Zambia, Africa, at which point I started going to our school there. So it was still kinda home-schooled, since my dad was my teacher, but a little more structured.
In my free time, I enjoy playing video games, reading fantasy and science fiction, watching movies & TV shows on Netflix, cooking, running, and programming. I have dreams of being a great actor, writer, game creator, and much more, but the first list is how I generally spend my time and I enjoy all of it. I also really love working with children an teens of all ages.
