So I haven’t posted anything in a very long time. My last post, I was with my ex, Mandi. I was still friends with Shane, and I played bass and was still in college. This was about 2 years ago, at least.In April, one week after my birthday my Papa passed away. He was like my second Dad, and watched my brother and I hundreds of times when we were kids. He was a true Artisan woodworker, and knew everything there was to know about wood. He made me a custom made rolling pin a few months before for Christmas, and it will always be the most perfect gift I ever have received. He suffered through a brain aneurism, mouth cancer, and maybe a stroke. His body progressively shut down until he unfortunately passed away. All the family came to see him before he passed, and he handed down a handful of items to be, of which I will always and forever have. You’ll always be missed Papa.
Last May, I graduated MVCC for baking and pastry arts / culinary arts management. My last semester I had 7 classes five days a week, and I worked on weekends. I managed to complete the semester making the president’s list, along with 3 certifications.
Sometime in September, Mandi and I broke up. We saw each other usually once a week, and unfortunately she made less and less time for me. She was operating her own business, trying out a political position in her town, attending college, and working. We dated for 3 years and 5 months, the longest relationship I’ve had.
In January, I bought my newest vehicle, a 2010 Dodge Caliber. A 4 Cylinder, 4 speed hatchback, with just less than 200 horsepower. Only 57,800 miles when purchased, and this car simply looks beautiful, all for $215 a month!
In February, I finally got a part-time job at a bakery in Syracuse. They really seem to like me, and I’ve been working there for about a month now. They make all of their pastries and breads from scratch, absolutely zero shortcuts.
In March, I asked this downright snazzy girl to be my girlfriend. Her name is Ashlee, and she is a blessing in my life. I talk to her on the phone nearly every single night, and I wake her with a “Good Morning Beautiful” every morning. Ever just see a picture of someone and your heart skips a beat? Ever been with someone and time seems to slow? Two sentences that fit her wonderfully. Her charm simply dazzles me, her beauty is stunning, and her kisses send me to the moon.
Next month, I turn 21! I cannot wait for this spring, seriously. I hate the fact I was screwed into buying a new car in the middle of winter, I want to detail it so bad.
