Hi! Hello!

I swear I am still alive. The last 6 months have been a bit of a whirlwind. Too many changes happened and I haven't been able to throw down in the kitchen for y'all.

Here's what happened in the last 6 months:
  • I moved from living by myself to living with a roommate.
  • I finished my Master of Social Work program. (Yes. Moving happened before graduation, because I'm a masochist.)
  • I started an exhausting job two weeks after graduation.
  • I experienced financial loss and car trouble because of aforementioned job.
  • I traveled out of the country to hang with my family and celebrate love.
  • I got a new job where I would get to do what I studied in grad school.
  • I started said new job and I am in love with what I get to do every day.

As you can see, I have been transitioning out of being a full-time graduate student into a full-grown adult. It's like I have been re-birthed. The reason I started this blog was not only to showcase my cooking skills, but to also share what embracing change looks like. I'm a 30-year-old recent graduate student who made a drastic career change. Pretty brave of me, if I do say so myself. I know I'm not alone in life plot twists, but dang is this sh!t hard. Life is filled with peaks and valleys; I have experienced a lot of them—a lot. Alas, change is good and change also hurts. I have been stretched and molded into a new woman with God by my side.

Needless to say, I am finally in a place where things are beginning to feel like they are settling. HA, but we shall see. I've got a 21-day kickboxing challenge I am starting on November 4, 2019 at my local kickboxing gym. I will hopefully find the time to share what I'm whipping up in the cocina.
