Oh, hello again!

In Uncategorized on October 1, 2011 at 2:20 am

Woah.  I haven’t been on this blog in almost a year. *shame* I really do have a good excuse though.  A lot has happened in the past year and a half.  I took control of my life and have lost almost 50 pounds in the last few months.  Not where I want to be, but I’m getting there everyday.  That was the good.  Now the bad.

In the past year and a half, I also suffered a loss.  My best friend of 12 years and I parted ways.  It was painful and hard to deal with.  Needless to say, the past year and a half has been hard for me.  I wasn’t really living for a few months.  Or blogging or really doing anything.

But on to something fun.  I am very excited to announce that I am officially planning to attend culinary school and become a Pastry Chef, with the ulitmate goal of opening my own cupcakery/bake shop.

SO exciting.  Classes start next August.  I decided to start blogging again because I want to document my adventures in school as well in the kitchen.

Several years ago, I never thought I would pursue food as my career.  And I never thought I would go to culinary school.  But I decided against what sounded right and chose to follow my heart and pursue my passion.

So that is what I’ve been up too the past few months.  Some good, some bad, but both have shaped me into the person I am today. Which is worth it.

You’ll have to bear with me, I’m not good at blogging yet.  When classes start I plan to post as much as I can, with as many pictures as I can.  My first class involves breads and doughs.  My college advisor said all the students come back the next day with sore arms.  I don’t mind that at all!

So now that we’re caught up, I’ll get to work on my next post, involving quick breads.  Yum!
