"What’s your biggest regret in life?"
"Spending too much of my life trying to fit in. From the age of 8 to 23, I tried so hard to be "the cool guy". I don’t think I really explored my inner nerddom. I guess at 23 I finally started to figure out who I am and be happy with that."
"Not finishing college. I wanted to become a sports coach. But I started doing drugs and before I knew it I had a real addiction. My parents and ex girlfriend did the whole intervention thing. They told me I could either go to rehab or I could be homeless. I’m not made for being homeless so I went to rehab. I just celebrated 9 months of being clean this week."

"If you could go back and change one thing about this past year, what would it be?"
"I would have curbed my spending habits. I spent way too much of my money on fast food. I should have been saving it all for a car…"
"I should have been better about actually attending my classes. I’m in college to become a lawyer but this year I skipped a lot of class for no good reason."

I saw this woman photographing a bunch of high school kids. She was kind enough to let me take her picture.
"I’m the social worker at their school…"
"What would you say is the hardest part of your job?"
"There are SO MANY kids who need help and really limited resources. So we can’t help as many kids as we want in the ways that we want. Also one of the hardest things I deal with are non-involved parents. Parents who don’t know and don’t want to know what their kids are up to. Or parents who take all the work we do and undermine it by letting their kids do whatever they want."
