Happy 2014

So, I wish everyone a happy 2014. For me 2013 was a year of death, almost death, and rebirth. There was a lot of learning going on too. Not to say that I don’t have a lifetime more of learning to still do, though. 2013 saw my Dad die, my alcoholism spiral totally out of control. On May 31, I overdosed on pills and booze and ended up close to dying but it was a good thing for it is now my day of sobriety. I haven’t had a drink since that day. I joined Alcoholics Anonymous and started working on myself and caring for myself instead putting the emphasis on everyone else like I had been for so long. I enrolled in the community college in August and began taking two classes online in September. I ended up getting a 4.0 GPA in December and classes will start again on the 21st this month. This time I’ll attend the classes at the college rather than online. I get to sit with the students that are close to 30 years younger than me. ( Sometimes I feel like I’m in a TV show.. lol ) So, I’m attempting to attain a degree in culinary arts. I’ve cooked my whole life and feel that I should get credit for it and maybe I can find a job cooking for somebody. I’m not going to worry about that part yet.

I’m looking forward to 2014 and will attempt to make it a year in which I learn more and grow more.

Wishing you all the best!
