Hello. I survived what might have been the worst of it. What I hope was the worst of it. As of 2017, anyway. I’m feeling okay. Things are on the up. I want to take this in a direction that doesn’t make me sick to my stomach when I read through it again in the future. Let’s start a new journey. One that is okay. At the heart of all this, I am okay. I will be okay.

- I went back to “school.” I’ve always been interested in plants, in growing my own food and creating environments that promote peaceful, happiness, and just an all around good feeling or vibe as the kids say. I’m in a Sustainable Agriculture Program offered by my local college. I put in time on an actual farm and get real hands on experience with everything from starting seeds, transplanting, propagation, harvesting, weeding and prepping for markets. I even get to meet some pretty decent farm animals.
- I landed me a good one. After taking about a year off dating and mostly dating apps to get my mind right, and honestly to get sanity back. I took a last stab at it using the app Bumble which only let’s women message men after you’ve “matched.” After our first date, I deleted my account and the app and haven’t looked back since. Going strong since January 2016. ❤
- Job Stability. Is it perfect? Of course not. Not even close. But I can come and go as I need, I can work from home. I can openly communicate with my boss, and I get to do things that I actually enjoy like using a camera and creating graphics and websites for fun things.
- My passion for things is starting to come back. Which is why I’m here, why I’m writing again and why I’ll be filling this thing up with plant pics for days.
