Gush & Gripe: That Time When I Went AWOL Again

You can get this at Etsy
Hey, friends of Talk Supe! It's been a while, I know, so many things going on so I thought I'd catch you up some on what I've been up to lately.

Simply put: life is great! The downside is Talk Supe is pushed to the wayside. I apologize for ghosting, but I don't feel guilty because I've earned this season in my life.

Short backstory: the past 7 years have been a trial where I was constantly comparing (and inspiring) myself to Job. It was chaotic, to say the least, and because I have a wild streak (party like a rockstar), I consciously chose to live like a hermit, cut myself off from my friends, focused on my mental health and swore off anything "fun". So I chose to seek solace in books and eventually found my way to Talk Supe.

It's been quite the journey, but boy, when my lessons were done, Life came for me hard and it came bearing gifts, confetti, and lots of craft beer. Craft beer is my new thing now, sours and barrel-aged being my top favorites. Oh and Bourbon too! All those Bourbon books got me curious & now I'm a little hooked!

Right now: I'm still reading and I'm currently collating the books I've read and will review, but a hermit I am not anymore. Surrounded by the right people in the right environment, I'm now social again. And in my brief hiatus I've also pondered how I'm going to incorporate Talk Supe into this phase in my life and as of now, it'll be a mix of books and life stuff. Don't worry, this isn't going to be "that" kind of blog, rather there will be more personal posts like this and mostly because this happiness I'm experiencing right now is overwhelming and I just have to be obnoxious about it once in a while. The Universe is a tough teacher, but it's the best too!

I apologize in advance for future silly posts. Then again I'm not guilty. I worked for this and I earned it.

Thanks again for your continued patronage and support. I love you guys!
