Hey There, I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself, hence the ‘About’ page, haha. I’ll start by saying that sometimes I try to throw out funnies but I do have a dry sense of humor so some people may not find funny what I think is funny. So if you don’t find me funny or get a laugh, just shake your head and read on. At some point I’ll try to make sure you laugh.
So a little about me, I’m getting to be an old lady hehe, not really but it seems as though life has just sped by and I don’t know where it’s gone really. I feel like I’ve done so much and yet have done nothing. There’s always more travelling to do, places to explore, people to meet.
I feel like there’s no sense in telling you about my past because I’m totally focused on my future and where I’m heading. Out with the old, in with the new, right!! So I’ll just briefly tell you about the past, only the good parts though, we have no time to dwell on the bad.
So I was born and raised in Southern California to two cool parents. I had an older half brother awaiting me and then a couple years later a younger brother came along. We were living the dream until I was 12 when my parents got a divorce. It was a rough time in our lives and I prefer to just not think too much about it. I will say it has helped shaped me into the person I am today, whether that’s good or bad, is still up for debate. Again, no dwelling on the could’ve, would’ve, should’ve.
I saw my mom work hard after the divorce and I think that and the fact that I needed things she couldn’t afford led me to my first job at 14. I worked at a pizza place and to this day it’s still my most favorite job. I remember I only made $4.25 an hour but those paychecks were like gold to me. I was an independent girl and there was no turning back.
We eventually moved to a new area and it was too far for me to get to the pizza place so I had to quit but that didn’t stop me. Soon I found another place where they partnered me with older people who needed things done around the house and who were willing to pay.
I eventually dropped out of high school to work full time and didn’t go back for my GED until I was 32. I don’t recommend this, get that diploma or GED immediately. It’ll serve you well in the long run. Although I have proved that you could get to management level jobs without having one, this day in age it’s not so easy.
I went on from one dead end job to another until I was hired at Starbucks. This is where I got my big break into upper management and rode that for about 6 years. But I got tired of working for a big corporation, even though they paid well. I wanted more and I needed a life change. I broke up with my boyfriend of 7 years and decided I needed to get away from California.
