Shamleless Plug

I'm embarking on a new part of my life that is happier and going in a direction! It's really refreshing.

I was married May 19th, 2012 to a great guy I met at the C.I.A and we're go excited to embark on a life together. He has as culinary degree to match my baking and pastry degree. It's going to be a Good life.

I hope you enjoy my thoughts on food and cooking. I am but a humble baker, who happens to love cooking and embraces the joy of food.

I graduate in a few days. It’s odd. I’m excited to go, but it just feels weird that I wont be walking through the halls again, running around to hand in papers, studying for finals, worrying I’ll pass a math class, being in class with people I can actually talk to and joke with…I’ll miss that- being apart of things. It’s going to be weird being home. I think I’ll miss it.
Hopefully job searching and part time work will keep me busy. My sister already established a curfew on “her” apartment. That makes me laugh a little. Yeah, “her” apartment. Right. Once you pay rent you can call it that, but for now the house edition (originally meant for my grandmother and an aid, by the way) is the house edition in which you happen to reside. I’m never in there longer then to check my email anyway, so for her to establish a curfew is another way to make me feel like a 9 year old girl. What a surprise, because it’s too much to ask to be treated like an adult or an equal, I’m only graduating with a Bachelors degree in a few days. I need to get a job to keep my sanity.

I don’t have any friends in the immediate area, my boyfriend will be up at school, so my weekends will be LOTS of fun. I’m a homebody anyway. I’m not big on staying out till 1am. Sleeping in isn’t a happy option for me, at least not at school. After midnight I’m just so ready to be home.

I don’t know….. I’m mixed. I’m ready to be done, but unsure of the future. I find it utterly unfathomable that anyone is willing to hire me because they like my writing. Sometimes all I want to do is write, but sometimes I feel so un-passioned and lethargic. And who’d want to hire someone who doesn’t want to write every second of the day? I really want to have a career at a magazine and share my experiences, ideas and whatever else I can with people. But it’s going to take awhile. For now I’d be thrilled to be an assistant somewhere. Yes, of course I’ll run eight blocks and get coffee at the other Starbucks because the one downstairs has weird lighting. Of course! Anything to get your foot in the door, right?

Anything……My senior thesis turned out very well, but I didn’t exactly follow what the Dean wanted from it….if by “didn’t exactly” you mean “absolutely didn’t take a bit of her direction and did what I planned to anyway.” In my defense, she wanted me to do a promo on how wonderful the Learning Strategies Center is, and, well, that’s not where the paper was going, and to go that way would make the paper loose flow and sound choppy. She isn’t the one grading me, it’s my paper and my experiences, so who is she to tell me how to write my paper?

I'm lethargic today. I had my last Ethics class and it was sad. My last class at this school. I'm slightly sentimental. All I have is a finance final and I'm done. Which I should go study for before I get too tired.
