Tomorrow, I sign up for college. I'm pretty excited really as it's taken me a while to figure out what I want to do. Starting out in fashion and then having a sabbatical that has seemed to go on forever. Baz Luhrmann said:

wanted to do with their lives"

Well I've got to 24 before realising what I want to do, so maybe that just makes me a very interesting person. I've tried a million jobs but cooking is just the one thing I always come back to. It's probably because I always feel like I have to please people and cooking just does that. I never feel as good as when I see someone eat something I've cooked. They put that first morsel in their mouth, theres a silence and just a slight change in their face; maybe a slight closing of the eyes or the raise of one corner of the mouth. Then that second mouthful goes in and they are putty in you hands. For me- best feeling ever. So with that thought in mind, I'm going back to college to study Patisserie. Ina Garten started off in fashion and then moved to cookery and look at her! I also think it would be really great for my writing plus it makes me look that bit more professional when I galavant off to publishers saying "please publish my book, ta muchly..." So fingers crossed kids, fingers crossed... 


  1. Wow good luck!! I'm so glad you found what you want to do!! I didn't know until I was about 22 or 23, and now at 25, I am now in university studying psychology! But I'm also thinking I want to get into the baking field professionally? Who knows!! You'll do great, though! You are incredibly talented and creative!!

  2. you could do some amazing psychological study about why baking and cakes make us happy!! I think it's crazy that people are ment to know at like 16, 18 what they want to do with their lives. They haven't lived, you don't know what your really like as a person yet and theres all this guilt associated with not having a "career".... its crazy!! ^__^
