Ryan Pittman: Coming to Vanderbilt

22. October 2012 10:45

My father gave me a Next Steps video. And I said, “Pick me! I want to go to Next Steps.” Now I’m making food and cooking. I’m walking around and I’m really busy. I have stuff to do, getting homework done, and finishing everything for the whole week. I have to get moving in the morning so I can get ready for breakfast and go to Commons for classes and Ambassadores. I’m living on my own, and it’s a little bit hard because sometimes I get stressed. But I have Josh and Justin to help me. We are a family together. We eat dinner together, go to pizza places, have fun, and go to Best Buddies events.

I go to bible club called RUF. I also go to Fellowship Church with my parents. We’re going to Peru this Christmas on a mission trip. I also do Food Forays with the whole Next Steps group at the apartments where I live. We play sports when we’re together like basketball, tennis, football, swimming, hockey, and Frisbee.

I’m glad I came to Next Steps because I’ve met a whole lot of people. It makes me happy that somebody is there for me.
