guys, i’m retiring from the liquor industry. officially. there’s no need to get emotional but i think you know what i’ve been through by now and why i need to leave. it hasn’t been an easy decision but one that my doctors and i agree will certainly add more years to my already-short life-expectancy.
i’ll be having an end of the year party to celebrate 8 years of some of the greatest work i’ve ever done. it’s going to be a huge event at an even huger venue and starting now i’m freaked out. please come. PLEASE don’t not come.
why do i always do this to myself. every year i say I’m not going to have a party. then i always do. i can’t help it; the end of the year is the best time to look back and reflect on everything we did. i’ve been doing it for so long. topping it with a party at the same time? to me it seems like a no-brainer. so many of you are home for the holidays. it’s such a fun time to celebrate. and nobody wants to do parties over the holidays.
why else could i have been born on the winter solstice if it wasn’t to have epic end of the year birthday parties?
it’s happening. please save the date. 12-21-2016. 6pm-4am. my friends not on Oahu here’s a good heads up to find a way here. it will be worth it, trust me. go from working at a helpdesk, fixing desktop and software issues for 11 years then throwing PARTIES for LIQUOR for 8 years. it’s going to be a sensory overload bigger than anything i’ve ever done or i’ll go down in flames.
don’t worry about me working too much either; i live for this kind of thing. but i also called in the calvary to pull this off. that’s right… it’s going to be THAT BIG. i’ve already locked in amazing art, food, live music, fashion, cocktails and projection visuals to make you all go “WOAAAAAH” but more importantly let’s celebrate a crazy year and a crazy career. that’s what the end of the year is for.
watch out for a lot of nostalgia as I gather some of my favorites from over the years. you are welcome to contribute as well. if you want to record a video to me with your mobile recording device and email it to me we will include it in the video that night. in case you didn’t know my email is just cw at supercw.com :) if you can’t come but want to make a donation that is ok too. you can use the Eventbrite page for that. oh, and I would get the pre-sales because it will be more at the door.
monday was a good day. i was still reeling from the Sunday paper and got to visit the 93.9 morning show for Motivation Mondays. that was my first time using Facebook live! ps i am SO happy these two are back on the air. i will always remember driving to work so so so many years laughing out loud to Sam and Ryan in my car. sometimes they would call me if there was something techie to talk about. yesterday morning we got to talk about breast cancer though, among other things… including this film!
if you want some laughs today or just want to see how much energy i have right now, even first thing in the morning take a look:
they say everything you do in life prepares you for this moment, right now. i am crying on my couch right now. it’s not tweaked out hormones. it’s THIS ARTICLE in today’s paper. the SUNDAY paper. mama, i made it. front page. above the fold! my head is spinning thinking about how many more people i can reach from this. if you are here because of the article please start here. then find a copy of my paper online here. these two things are the most important. oh also the TEDxHonolulu video. i’m really proud of how that came out.
hi! well i made it to fall! i really REALLY love this time of year. it’s my favorite season. i figure it’s a good time to go ahead and just let everyone that might be interested what is going on with my health and well being.
i’ve been so so happy to read your notes, your cards, your texts emails messages snaps tweets. all of it. you guys you know that is the greatest gift for me at this point.
i didn’t really post too much details when the recurrence happened in may for a few reasons; one i had to process it myself. that was crazy. i’m not sure yet that i still have. my oncologist told me when breast cancer spreads to the brain that’s 6 months. she told me that in may. so, may, june, july, …… ok so that means if she was correct that my time is up come october.
sorry guys the team is worried about a sunday event getting lit you guys. sorry not gonna do it unless it’s done right. they know what’s up. save date though for my official liquor industry retirement party. 12/21/2016. if u know me and u know the liquor events this will be the biggest goodbye she-bang honolulu city has seen since this one —->
