Just finished off a 25g pack, down to 6 or so more packs. I love having lots of this on hand, as it’s really comforting and I prefer a drastically over-leafed cup. So rich and chocolatey.

This last week has been quite strange. I’ve been looking for a new job for over a year…transitioning careers is tough stuff. Very happy to say that I finally received a job offer at my dream company and I’m starting next week.

Soon after receiving that news, I found out my grandma unexpectedly passed away. So, any joy I was feeling about my job was completely eradicated. My grandparents had a huge hand in raising me, so I’m still in a bit of shock about it.

Life is strange and difficult.

Congrats about the job and sorry for your loss Amanda! :)/:(
