The Beginning

So after dropping out of college and not knowing what i wanted to do with my life I finally decided that my love of baking was strong enough to make a career out of it. In september 2015 I will be starting a baking and pastry arts management course in Dublin institute of technology with the hope of one day starting my own bakery.. or something along those lines. I hope to use this blog to share my thoguts and some pictures/recipies.

    Back when I first got a car I LOVED to drive. Any excuse & I was behind the wheel. I loved it so much that I even thought about being a truck driver. On the road every day driving, well it sounded like heaven to me. They would even pay me pretty good money to do what I loved, win win, wow!
    Then I moved far away & started making trips home. Trips like 1,500 to 2,000 miles over short periods of time (like a truck driver would). It didn’t take but a couple of trips & I started hating them & I mean really hating them. I would get home & do nothing for a couple of days except think about the damned trip back. The a couple of days before I was to leave, again all I thought of was that damned trip. I found out that what I used to love, I started hating because I did it so often.
    So the moral here is that after you bake a while I hope you still love baking but I wouldn’t bet on it. As with most things you can get burned out doing it if you have to do it. Just saying……

      i completely understand what you mean and yes there are parts of baking that i am starting to hate already (such as the washing up afterwords) but having tried two career paths already i strongly feel that having a career that you have an interest in is such a huge part of the battle of being happy in your job! I am finally excited about a college course i’m never going to be 100% confident that i’m making the right decision but if i don’t try i’ll never know… and hopefully the end result will be pretty sweet excuse the pun!
