Sober Selfies #16 (shirts required, please review rules)

3Y. 10M. 19D.
Going Strong.


Actually struggled a bit on my trip to Cali. Thought about it :thinking: It would be so easy to get shit faced drunk because of this family visit from hell that didn’t turn out the way I expected it. But where would that have got me. No fucking where!!! Instead I’m already over it. It passed. And I still got my loving family even when I don’t agree with them and they all piss me off. And no crushing hangover. And these beautiful flowers.

Nice contrast to my color. I love the black and white pics. So much easier waiting patiently when we’re sober right?

Thanks Eric…I too love the black and white pics from time to time

What a lovely change having to wait sober…so grateful I was not itching to get outta there and get a fix. They were super behind today so 20 min in waiting room and another 1/2 hour in room… grateful for sobriety and meditation to keep me sane :wink:

Cheers Jas :slight_smile:

It was a snap interview, I took a punt on a really well regarded restaurant in town that tbh, I didn’t think would be interested in my experience. They called me today, asked me for an interview within 2 hours and the head chef asked me to come and work the evening if I didn’t mind which of course I did. I shall find out Friday. Would be nice, the head chefs a nice woman and it’s all fresh food, all home made, not a microwave in sight.

Another holiday season comes around where I’m not talking to my mum and this year it might become a permanent change so I’m struggling with that a bit

Thankyou :slight_smile:

Some people may remember about 5 years ago I used to drop pictures and stories of my time in a kitchen I loved working in back then that gave me the ultimate creative flare whilst working - It wont be the same at this place if they decide to take me on from a creative standpoint as they need consistency in their recipes but when the time comes for a menu change, that’s when I will really badger the Head Chef to let me join in the creative fun! Til then, I’ve got music and writing. Also, I really need to learn to paint my nails properly.
