End of an Era

Today was my last day at Mimi's Cafe. Moreover, today was my last day working in the food service industry period. . . I have longed for this day for years, upon years, upon years. I have wanted out of the business since I was 16 years old, and that, my friends, was 12 years ago! I prayed for the day when I could say "screw you" to the guests and get everything off my chest which had been irking me for years, but today came and went, and I refrained from saying or doing anything inappropriate. I took the high road, and I suppose it felt good. My co-workers and managers gave me flowers, a cake a card and lots of well wishes. It was a nice goodbye. I am actually sad that I'm no longer going to be a part of something that's been in my life for so many years. But where one door closes, another one opens, and I know that this is something that has to end in order for the rest of my life to begin.
Anyway, tomorrow marks a HUGE day in my life. I'm going to finally be honest with my parents and my family about some personal stuff. Most of you know what I'm talking about. I wrote a letter, because that was the only way I could express myself without being interrupted, and without crying or rambling on. I'm scared, but like I said before, I need to move on with my life and I can't do that when I'm holding onto so many secrets and lies.
Well, next week at this time I'll be in San Francisco with K.P. I can't wait, it's going to be awesome!!! Then I'll have a little over a week left to relax, shop, go to the gym, and prepare for my new teaching career. I'm pretty excited! =)
Anyway, I've gotta go now. I'm hungry. (shocking, I know)
