New Year, New Blog, New Journey!

Let’s get reacquainted, it’s been a while.

Happy New Year!

Hi how are you? How have you been? It’s been a while. Over 4 years to be exact. You are still looking good honey!

Have you looked around? I have new digs, what do you think? Still working on it so be patient with me. Especially when your WP skills are self-taught, things tend to be a little slower.

So many things have changed since I last wrote, so many lessons. Some came with heartache to later reveal themselves as blessings.

Things got scary for a bit, but I was able to find my footing and with God’s help slowly crawled out of the rabbit hole I had dug for myself. I think I was starting to get comfortable in that damn hole, but once I got EGO out the way. I saw my way out. Oh and this is just in the last six months! We will talk about this a little more later.

Here are a few tidbits of the many changes that have occurred in my life:

  • I’m no longer living in Berkeley, so of course no more Under the Berkeley Skies. I’m no longer under them.
  • I acquired a Master’s Degree. Yes, I’m a Master at something other than raising hell. It was a weird experience, not as life changing as attending CAL, though. But still grateful for the opportunity and the privilege of higher education (You see I still need to check myself, every-now-and-then). Go DONS!
  • Here’s the big one…ready? I mean, I hope you are. I still can’t believe it from time to time and I have to pinch him to confirm. Want to know who him is? It’s my son. Yes, I became a mother. I know, you just gasped in Spanish, didn’t you? A complete shocker to…possibly only you. Everyone else around me knew that I wanted to be a mother, maybe not how it happen. But mamihood was something I wanted to be a part of. Disclaimer: Didn’t get knocked up purposely, so get that out your dirty little mind.
This is not a telenovela, my friend.

How? Que? Como? I know, so many questions. It was the you know, old fashioned way. Girl meets guy, mistakenly commits to a relationship. Girl gets smart, ends relationship, pees on three different sticks and boom finds out she’s pregnant. He’s a beautiful, wild and crazy kid that has the amazing super power to drive me nuts and make my heart smile at the same time.

  • I’m also currently unemployed, yes girl, after five years at my organization they decided to change a few things and I was one of them. So, at the ripe-old age of 38 (ouch!), I’m looking for work-again. I will be documenting this journey.

Many changes, but don’t fret my sass is still intact!

Thanks for staying true boo!
Let’s see where this journey takes us.

So many things to say, but not sure how to say it. We will go with the best and simplest answer, I'm one bad ass Unicorn. Yup, there's only one of me and once you get to know you'll understand why that's a good thing. I say what's on my mind and I'm not afraid to call out BS, as I am also the first to admit when I'm wrong. If you want to find out more, check out my site. There will be a little bit of everything, going through a change...so stay tuned. Subscribe to my blog to make sure you don't miss a beat!
