How It’s Going So Far!

Hi everyone, Leon here with another life update.

For today, here are the three main items up for discussion:

  1. College
  2. Work Life
  3. Miscellaneous


Starting with “College,” I’m happy to share that I’m currently in my last semester of remote courses for my Bachelor of Arts in Business and Marketing! I’ll be graduating on May 19, 2023 (remotely), and I’ll never have to think about another pointless exam or lecture ever again! (Or so I tell myself).

It’s been almost ten years since I started my college journey (on and off, admittedly). But I’m finally ending that chapter of my life. Tragically, as I near the end of college life, I realize just how useless the institution of higher education has become.

Regardless of the major, college has become a place of stagnating knowledge and outdated “fact-checking.” In fact, if I was born in today’s world, I don’t think I’d attend college. I remember having three to five hours of long-study sessions each day when I started my higher education journey. Now? The college experience has been reduced to nothing more than just a title for people to put on their resumé or claim the “college” life.

Perhaps the silver lining for me is that I acquired a few tidbits of knowledge from my BA in Business and Marketing – unfortunately, this isn’t useful in the real world. It is, however, nice to be aware of some of these bits of knowledge.

Conclusively, I’ll be completing college with a 3.55 GPA. That’s about it!


As far as my work life goes, I’ve been a driver for a non-profit organization in Daytona Beach, Florida. (Surprise! I’ve been living in Florida for the past 10 months).

Before becoming a driver in January of this year, I lived in Tampa, working remotely as a sales development representative for a SaaS company out of New York City. That gig lasted two and a half months before the whole sales team (including me) was let go.

Fast-forwarding to today, I enjoy my job as it doesn’t require me to play the useless office politics of my previous roles. It also has helped me stay in shape and look healthier than I have ever looked in my life. In addition, I enjoy helping my supervisor pick up furniture for the company’s re-housing program and making deliveries of dry, canned food to local schools in the Daytona Beach area.

That aside, I’m also studying for my TESOL certification to teach remotely to adult English learners around South America and the world. Being that I’ll have my BA degree in May, it’ll also unlock the opportunity to teach English in a remote environment. I previously tutored for a private company for 1 full school year, so that experience will be useful if I pursue remote teaching part-time.

Lastly, I’m also in the process of (hopefully) getting hired for a fully remote sales position with a lifetime residual value. It’s been a lengthy interview process, but I’m hopeful I’ll get the job.

That all pretty much wraps up my work life!


Today marks almost three years since the 2020 global shutdowns; I reflect on how lucky and grateful I am to have reclaimed my independence from relying on others. 2020 and 2021 were the worst years of my life. Since I’ll be turning thirty in April, I am shocked at how little I know about life and society. I know that I still have a lot to learn and experience, and I’m looking forward to the arduous journey ahead. There will undoubtedly be days when I want to throw in the towel and give up. But I can’t. I have nobody else, or nothing else, to fall back on. This is the life I’ve been given, and it’s the life I’ll lead forward regardless of how I feel.

Life has been so busy for me that I’ve changed a lot from who I used to be – but again, I know I have a long road ahead of me. I’m at the point in my life where nobody, but myself, can stop the change. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous or even a little scared – but I know I’m as ready as I’ll ever be.

In the coming days, weeks, months, and years, I hope to one day make a lasting impression on the world’s general population. It may not happen, and it may forever be a pipe dream, but I’ll keep pressing onward with no regret. Life’s a short journey, but it’s a journey none of us will ever forget.

Forever in Your Debt,

Leon R.M. Auguste
