…they are over.  Unfortunately we couldn’t come to an agreement so I had to respectfully decline the Alaska position.  I crunched the numbers and I discovered that I would have to be independently wealthy in order to afford what would be coming out of my pocket. Bummer…but it was in the end MY decision and not one that was made by committee.  Things happen for a reason.  I’m good with my decision and I am looking forward to the next part of my plan.

A plan.

This one involves my Hometown.  I have been aggressively seeking employment in Louisiana doing work that I do with the Government.  I realized that I have a Rockstar Resume…why have I NOT been throwing it out there?  Like I said…things happen for a reason. If I were meant to be in Alaska all negotiations would have gone my way and I would be enjoying the beauty of nature.

At least in Louisiana I can smoke and have pets.  Alaska seemed to be smokeless and pet-less…with rental rates that made you pass out.

IF the Louisiana thing works out then I will also be going back to school in the evening to pursue what I have always wanted to pursue…COOKING and getting that CHEF hat.


No Alaska! Phooey!  But new opportunities on the horizon for sure!
