It's been a year since I've updated my livejournal and so much has happened.

Basically in a nutshell In July 2013 I left M and T and became a free woman.

In the 8 months I have been free, I have landed my own apartment (and NEVER been late on ANY of my bills), got both my own checking and savings account.

I've landed an office job working as a "Records and Archives Specialist" which is a fancy title meaning I'm a file clerk. But I get my own office and can listen to music all day.

I've found that freedom suits me and I'm enjoying every moment.

I love my apartment and being able to decorate how I want.

I've picked up new hobbies (cooking, baking, crochet) and plan on returning to horseback riding this summer.

I've also found joy in a friend of mine. He and I are getting handfasted for a year and a day on March 14th and then heading to Baton Rouge to visit my parents for the weekend.

I've connected more with my spiritual side and it's wonderful. I keep two altars in my apartment.

Life is indeed good.

I do plan on keeping this updated more.

I cannot believe it's been a year. I was thinking about you two weeks ago. Glad to hear life is on the up :)

I'm glad it is too.

I thought it was high time to let people know I was still alive. Lol

I'm glad you're doing well :)

That sounds like an interesting job! Does it pay well, if you don't mind me asking?

And yay for having your own apartment. ^^

It pays me $10 an hour, not bad and enough for me to pay my bills with a little left over. Which is really all I ever really wanted.

Thank you! You are so kind!

I can't think of anything I need help with, unless you can offer some pointers on baking cookies that don't turn into rocks the next day?

always beat the wet ingredients and sugar (butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, any oils, etc) together and sift the dry ingredients together SEPARATELY... then add the dry ingredients to the wet slowly while running the beaters (or hand mixing)

also you may want to add a bit more brown sugar

i am quite fond of "sugar in the raw" and do not use white sugar AT ALL.. i use "natural brown" sugar.. it helps

I'm going to give that a try today when I bake cookies. :)
