This Is Therapy
In lieu of talking it out with a therapist, or going to group therapy, this is where I work it all out. Sometimes it’s just sharing, sometimes it’s ranting, and sometimes it’s wishful thinking. For those of you who read this blog, thank you. It helps to know I’m not just talking out there toContinue reading “This Is Therapy”
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve worked in an actual restaurant. The last one was Wishbone in Petaluma, a great little farm to table spot.

Facebook Broke Up With Me
Reluctantly, I started a new account. I use the platform to keep in touch with friends and family who are quite literally scattered across the world.
