I spent the last couple of days in Cumming,  Ga. with my buddy Dave and his wife Celeste. He’d been after me to come for a visit for quite some time now.  So, I decided to visit after Christmas.

It has been a great visit. I’d forgotten what a great cook Dave is, and have had several great reminders since I arrived. 

We have drunk wine, done a little shopping, and I met some of Dave’s new friends,  and played an entertaining game called, Cards Against Humanity,  and watched a couple of good movies. I’m glad I came. Dave and Celeste are great people.

Later today I will be driving back to South Carolina and start preparing for school. I need to get my uniforms ready and purchase my books. I don’t know how difficult this semester will be but I’m not really looking forward to it like I did the last time I went.

I like culinary arts. I just seem to be missing some excitement about going to school this year. Hopefully, that will change once classes begin.

It is a new year. I hope it will be a good one. Usually, I go into the new year worrying about something, but not this year. At this very moment, I don’t care about anything. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I kind of feel like it might be a bad thing. Then maybe it’s not. When I say I don’t care it just means I’ve come to realize that I’m not in control of anything. As I get older “control” is proving more and more to be an illusion.

Even still, I look forward to what the year will bring. So I wish you all a happy new year. May all your endeavors prove fruitful.
