Let the Adventure Begin!

A very good friend of mine suggested that I start a blog to chronicle my progress through the baking program at Hocking College.  I have decided to listen to her, in part to help me stay in touch with the dear friends I have made whom I am leaving behind.  This blog will be my place for writing about my experiences in culinary school.  I will try to write the good and the bad, making plenty of time for my homework, of course!

While not completely out of left field, my decision to leave a good job to attend culinary school is something of a reversal.   I never thought that I would be able to attend culinary school to pursue my dream of opening a bakery all of my own!

It is the final week and a half of my current job.  I’ll be moving to Ohio to live with my parents while I am in school, something I am actually excited about but which I never thought I’d find myself doing!

What I do now is technical training and IT support, which I enjoy.  That being said, it has become unchallenging.  For me, this is nearly as bad as being miserable with the people.  I adore all of the people with whom I work, and I will miss them terribly.  I will also miss the job itself, challenging or not.

My “move date” is September 10, two weeks from today.  At this time in two weeks, I will be at my parents’ house, on their couch instead of the one that I’ve occupied for the last 7 years.
