Welcome to my blog, Confessions of a Startender. As you may have learned from my bio, I'm Crystal by day and MahoganeeRose anytime I need to spice things up. I’m staring at myself in the mirror singing the Debra Cox song "How did you get here?" (Nobody supposed to be here).. As I am howling the chorus to the song I begin to chuckle and SMDH. How did I get here? After 13 years of marriage I find myself single again. I am dating but not sure if the relationship will sustain my new hustle. ( more to come). I have a co-dependent relationship with my 25 year old son, another son who is a sophomore in college and my youngest son who is a senior in high school and scheduled to begin college in the fall. Well, I took some cash out of my 401k and the government didn’t like it. That damn FASFA lied and said I could afford to pay tuition! Here we go again! My boys are great kids. College is not an option. Did I mention I am in school too? I am pursuing my second Master’s degree. What’s a woman to do? I enrolled in bartending school. I graduated top of my class . Less than two weeks later I landed my first gig. I'm definitely not true to this. I'm new to this. Not quite how I imagined my life would be but my prayers were definitely answered. I'm still learning a lot about mixology, people and myself. I have seen some things that made me laugh and heard some things that have made me cry. I tell myself I'm only doing this to pay for tuition but I know there is always a greater purpose. So here I am getting ready to go to the "in patient center". make up, sexy dress, and the smile that grins and bears. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Thanks for reading!
