Samoa Tartlets

About 5 years ago, with the horrid economy looming over head, I was lucky to be laid off. I left a job that I had come to think was important, I was making very good money and had been since I was fresh out of high school, the savings account was well stocked, and I was on my own. It seemed like the perfect sort of life. With all that around me, I wasn’t aware of how miserable a person I had become.

Without warning I said my good byes to some very kind people, flipped some other people the bird and started a new chapter in my life. It took months to break the conditioning of the job I was in. In such a small and close business, I can’t begin to explain the horrid way some people would treat one another, the disgusting things they would say and do, and how manipulative and low some became.

Had I not lost that job, I wouldn’t know what life could be like.

I am now one of those lucky people who can honestly say that I love my job. I sell comic books. Not nearly as glamorous as the job I had before, but I love it. I work with schools, kids, libraries, and the people I grew up idolizing in the pages of the books I read. I have the most amazing co-workers who would do anything in the world for me if I needed it, and my clients are some of the most genuine people you could ever meet.

I have had many job offers back in the field I was in and people still can’t understand why I continue to refuse them. I think some people won’t ever get it. And that’s ok. I love my job, have more opportunities then ever, and am happy, which is more important than any amount of money in the world.

I love how you always give us a little slice of your life along with a slice of whatever you've cooked or baked.
