Not at all sure the best way to start this. I recently made a decision to make a radical change in my life, and this blog is my attempt to chronicle that change.
I've worked in technical fields for some time. I have twice tried, and twice failed, to get a computer related bachelor's degree. It's not that I am stupid, or lazy, or incompetent. But, as I got closer to finishing each time, I dealt with escalating depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. I've been unemployed awhile, and been dragging my feet getting back into the tech field. then, I had a revelation. I just didn't want to do that ever again. I did it because I was good at it, but had no passion for it.
I realized thing thing that makes me happy, is feeding people. Food is a real passion, has been all my life. I have no illusions. I know that it is a tough field. But, I'm tired of hating what I do. I want to look forward to working, not dread it. So, I'm going to try for culinary school.
I will record culinary adventures here. Recipes, restaurant reviews, how progess on getting ahead is going. There may be non-food related posts, but that isn't the plan as of now.
