Thoughts For Food

Insights into the Mind of a Culinary School Student

Life Update!


Hello everyone! Long time no see!

I am terribly sorry for the radio silence. I was so busy with my job that I barely had time to write! It was terribly frustrating to come home each night, want to write and update this blog, and find myself too tired to accomplish anything. It’s a sad feeling to be quite blunt. But, I’m back to updating on a regular basis! I’ll try and start a regular schedule of updates in order to make up for lost time. I will be sure to let you know what that schedule is once I’ve finalized it!

First bit of news is sad news. I left my job at BG Restaurant in November after only 8 months of working there. It was a tough decision for me to make, considering how long it took me to secure that job in the first place. It was an unfortunate situation that led me to quit but I won’t go into detail in order to remain professional about the whole ordeal. I left on a positive note with my coworkers and management, and I wish them all the best and thank them for the experience I gained while a part of the team.

Is this the end of my culinary career? Of course not! It is just the first step on a much larger journey! As of right now, I am still unemployed but searching in earnest for the next big opportunity. I am also considering other options, chief of which is making a return to school. I’ve given serious thought to going back to school to get my degree in Journalism. Coupled with my degree from the Culinary Institute of America, that should give me an edge in the wide world of Food Publications. It’s been my ultimate career goal since I entered the CIA and the way I see it is that I’m just taking another (albeit longer) route to get there. If I do take that course of action, wish me luck!

Finally, yesterday was my 5-year anniversary here on WordPress. If you’ve been following me for that whole time, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for following me and enjoying what content I bring, however sporadic it may be! If you’re new to my blog, welcome and I hope you enjoy whatever new journey I may go on!
