Today is December 16th, 2015, and I have an upper respiratory infection. I’ve been sick at home, and unable to go to work for the last three days, and I am:
- Sad that I devoured the last two seasons of Parks and Recreation in three days and that there is no more Parks and Recreation to be had.
- Inspired, because Leslie Knope, while fictional, tends to have that effect on people.
2015 has not been terribly kind to me. I cut ties with my parents, I had to vacate my last apartment in a hurry, and I’ll have to do it again before the year ends. My last car died, and I bought one for myself for the very first time. Also in a hurry. There’s been some weird emotional stuff that I still don’t quite understand and am still bouncing back from.
Don’t get me wrong, there were nice things about 2015. My friends remain awesome and supportive, my job is a pretty neat gig, and I’ve proved that I can stand on my own two feet in ways I didn’t know I was capable of, but it’s been tough.
I want 2016 to be different. Instead of focusing on putting out fires, I want to focus on the things that make me happy. One of the things that I realized makes me the happiest is cramming baked goods into the faces of the people I love.
I am by no means a professional. I get most of my recipes from the internet, and I will source them accordingly when I post, because this is for fun, and not out to make anybody mad. I hope to motivate myself to get better and try different things and also post pretty pictures (and possibly some flaming hot messes).
So enjoy, and thanks for visiting. 🙂
