It’s Been a Hot Minute

Good evening to all my readers.

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted, and I feel lyou all deserve a post on what’s happening. I had a busy fall semester in school, and though I didn’t succeed in all the courses I was supposed to finish due to a breakup, but feel much more on my feet now that I’ve given myself time.

I’m continuing Baking and Pastry Arts Management in January, which is both stressful and exciting. I can’t wait to share it with you all as I go in 2023!!

I’ve also been really enjoying a new brand and trying to extend myself out there by not just posting about it, but sharing my life a little more… it all starts here with this blog that I’ve sadly neglected until now, but plan on writing more in 2023!!!

I would like to just share about the brand I’m now a part  of that I truly enjoy, and figure you may as well!!! The brand is called Farmasi, and it has so much to offer I can’t even believe it!!! Just giving you a sprinkle, and I’d love to share more with you all!!!

Truly grateful to this company and it is making me want to post more and be more present.

I truly enjoy writing these blogs, just have to remind myself of this!!! Open-mouthed smile 

I will be returning with more blogs!!

Thank you all for reading!!

Major Update and New Dentist

Hello to all my readers.
Yes, it;s been awhile, but life happened.

First things first…
I finished my second semester in reduced course load. So, technically, I finished year 1, semester 1 in two semesters…. I past the baking practical 1 with a D!! Trust me I celebrated that!!! I knew it would be difficult, just didn’t completely realize how difficult, but I did it!!! In the fall, I will be doing the the theory portion of semester 2 for year 1!!!
One of my goals to possibly make it easier when I do the Baking Practical 2 is a talking kitchen scale!! We’ll see how that goes!

Secondly, I’ve kept putting off trying to find a dentist, due to my previous experiences…but I finally found one, and he’s awesome, just wow!!!
Holy cow, did I ever find out sooooo much!!!
In my first visit about two weeks ago now, I found out this:
1. My jaw issues I have are due to a sevvere overbite essentially taking over my jaw…
2. I was not scolded due to the problems I have with my teeth… decay, etc.
3. He has an awesome technique to distract while freezing my mouth
4. He has a payment plan for things that weren’t covered.
All in all, he’s awesome!! Point, blank, and the period!!

I’m hoping to write again soon, as it’s been way too long…

Happy New Year/New Life!

Hello to all my readers!

It’s been way too long since I’ve written on this blog of mine. I’ve been completing school this past semester, and also a new relationship. Unfortunately, due to the same lack of communication, and the person whom helped me realize this fact, I am happy to say we considered trying again, since about mid July and still going strong. It’s hard to believe it happened… but here I sit.

I have been crazy busy that this blog has been long vacant. He he… in July/August, I helped out Francis, or Frank as most people call him, including me with the crazy amount of hours he worked at Beyond Vanh Gogh. Crazy how it tired me out… but so worth it. I started school and then started a job at Frank and Oak mid October. That job I miss every day since my last day, December 24th.

I’m very happy, and can’t wait to start school next week! I’m happy to say I am happy with the new relationship and our fresh new start!!! Fresh starts are always good. We were young when we last were in relationship, but now here we are… older and wiser. So happy!

Oh, and I thought to add a little side note, for those who like and enjoy poker, he has streamed exactly that on Twitch and he also has a twitter account mostly devoted to poker, which you’ll find on his page. All in all though, a crazy year!!!

Oh, and for those who like new clothing, check out Frank and Oak!

Until next time!!

New Home, New Memories

I can’t believe I’m in my new home now!! I moved this past Wednesday, which means I’ve been here for five days already, today being day number five!!! I have my bed set up, along with my dresser and night table. I’m having to use my night table for art supplies now though, since I only have a one-bedroom.

I’d say the only one major complaint is trying to figure out the best place for my lift, as it’s so huge… not a fan of that, but I need it sometimes… so yeah.

Started actually putting pictures up… and probably today, my CCTV will be set up, so that will be good!!! Even though smaller, I’m so glad I moved!!! I have new memories to make here!!! I’m excited for that!!!

Once things are a bit more organized, I’ll make a post with updated pictures!!! Open-mouthed smile

It’s Almost Moving Time!!

Hello all!!
It’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog, so here it goes… I’m happy to report some news… I’m moving in literally just three days!!! I will say, I’m definitely so excited!! I got the offer late in January, and it’s so close now!!! Mostly all packed up, but yet it seems still not packed up enough. I’m so sad to leave the two bedroom, because of its space, but happy because of some not so good memories.

What’s also so nice is my new apartment is on the ground level of the building. Can’t wait to actually see it… so far, I’ve only seen pictures… and the pictures convinced me to accept the offer!!

Trying to think what else is new… since that’s the main thing I have to report… oh, I can say, I also applied to go back to school for the Baking and Pastry Arts Management program!!!

Those two things seem to be the only updates I have for this blog post… will try to post more, and not have it be this long again!!

Until next time…

A Close-Knit Christmas!

Good day all!!

It is officially New Years Eve, and I haven’t blogged in sooooo long!!! Steven and I had a quiet Christmas!! It was a good one though.

On Christmas Eve, we listened to our church’s livestreem for the candlelight service. What an awesome service that was!!! This was a good way to end Christmas Eve!!

Finally it was Christmas morning… we had a small-knit Christmas, but the gifts Steven and I got were a ton… very grateful!!! We also exchanged our gifts to one another. I got him a journal with his name engraved on the front and a message on the inside… I had him struck to silence, and then he cried. I could tell the gift moved him, which made me happy!! I got a canvas for me to paint on. We each had our own stockings too. Over all, a great Christmas morning!!!

Later that day, Steven’s parents brought over Christmas dinner to us. Oh my goodness… was it ever good!!! We even used the battery operated candles they gave us to add to the dinner.

All in all, a very good Christmas. Maybe next year, we’ll be able to celebrate Christmas with his family again!!! Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas, who reads this!!!

I Have a Job Now!!! Whoa!!!

Good early morning to all you readers!!!

I’m so excited to announce that I have a job!!! Still can’t believe it!!! I have a few things to do on the computer on October 21st, from 3pm-6p7m. I’m so excited to finally have a job, and a part-time job at that.

I had my first day of training on a Sunday at 8am. I can’t wait till I actually start doing actual shift!!! I can say this is another Faithful First.  I have been so excited since I’ve started work. I’ll definitely write more blog posts on this as I keep going.

Hoping this part-time job goes well, as I believe it will. So stoked, and hyper, of course!!!

 

Life Update Along with Creative Me!

Good day to you all!!!

I thought I’d actually blog again. I’ve been painting a bit the past day or so. It feels nice to be creative once again. I’m hoping to make more paintings as soon as I find ideas on what to paint. I got some canvases, and I made a canvas to a friend/honorary Auntie for her birthday in October. I’m excited to give it to her!!! I’m planning on framing the canvas so she can hang it where she likes.

Besides painting, or shall I say, getting back into painting, I’ve been trying to relax a ton, along with other personal matters I won’t divulge here. Feeling peaceful though, in the midst of it. But I also had a wheelchair malfunction, so I had no power usable power chair for at least two weeks. I’m so thankful I have it back and usable again.

Another update, I’m hoping, maybe in October to apply for college again for the Baking and Pastry Arts Management program. I hope I can pull through this time and graduate. I’m definitely excited for that though!!!

One last thing to say, I’m still waiting for a call from Orthopaedic doctor in regards to my hip. Trying to be patient in the meantime though.

Oh, bringing this back to painting for one last point. I’m looking for suggestions on things I could try and work on painting. Feel free to reach out to me on:

Feel free to follow, like and message me with your ideas!!!
