I seriously had a script memorized and it was mostly legit! When I say mostly I may have exaggerated a few things and acted way way more confident than I actually am.

The madness did not happen over night so easy does it.I remember being in your shoes; Afraid of the unknown and bills piling up. Understand, no matter how many doors close, you'll only need one "yes!" I'm in NC and I have found job with my restrictions. Right place, right time with the right mind. Bless you.Stick in there
