Proof is in the Pudding
I thought I would get down a few words tonight and share some of the details of what is going on here in my life. I usually try to have some sort of "Recovery" base to my entries but tonight that is not the case. Maybe that is the proof in the pudding. What I mean by that is that tonight I don't have a whole lot pressing on my soul that I need to put into some profound words. Maybe, what I have learned is working. After all, I am sober! Tonight, even though things are a bit crazy, I am pretty happy with everything. The other night at my home group birthday celebration I shared that a year ago I would not have been able to be a business owner or any where near it and last week I obtained a silent partner and funding so I am pretty stoked about this new adventure. The new website is slowly getting under construction and I cannot wait to to see it. I am sure it will be a lesson in patience, but I it will also be a lot of fun. I have also started back to working on a collection of short stories that hopefully will be published into a book one day. It is also a pretty great feeling to finally start making a dent in some of this debt so I can get my ass back in school in June. The local university has a great English department and a professional writing minor that looks awesome. It will be great to see how I do in school sober. That has not happened since high school. I am determined to get my degree even if it takes 30 years. Hell it might end up close to that since I started my higher learning journey in 1992. I have also come to the realization that I no longer want to work in any corporate environment. The bullshit, dishonesty, and flat out shenanigans just don't really mesh with this new life I have built for myself. Hopefully I will be able to put a POSITIVE end to that part of my life here before too long. I def think working for my self is the way to go. Hell if I never wear a suit ever again it will be too soon. Now lets talk about getting ready for my baby niece's first Christmas. I am so excited about this even if she does not understand. Watching her grow has been such a wonderful blessing, and with that being said, I have taken moving out of Atlanta off the table for now. There are too many things I would miss being away from her in these young years. Hell I might even meet a woman here that loves the Grateful Dead and is not full of shit! HA HA! Who knows! Well I hope this finds everyone well and happy on this first Monday in December. Remember to be good. Santa's elves are watching!
