A new start of sorts

Well long time, no update! Honestly I'm kind of terrible when it comes to the social networking thing (bar twitter and that's pretty recent) which you might've noticed but I've decided to take stab at it. This decision mostly comes from the fact that I've decided to be more proactive when it comes to my passion for baking. For oh I don't know, quite a few years now its been my dream to be a full-time baker. I've kind of just been waiting for things to fall into place really, to become the baker I want to be.

I've been thinking that it would be better to wait until I could get some professional training before I really tried anything. But the more time I spend online (which is a lot let me tell you) reading blogs and such, the more I start to think thats pretty silly of me. There are so many people who've become successful without waiting around for someone to show them how so there isn't any reason why I can't do it too.

Really the main catalyst for my decision to do more with this blog and my baking is because I've recently gone back to school and...haven't been doing too well. Like, abysmally. Thinking about it makes me want to cringe to be honest. I started college when I was sixteen and I did pretty good in the first semester but going back after a couple of years? Motivation was non-existent on the extreme. I realized that this just isn't what I want to be doing right now. I want to experiment. I want to build up my shop. I want to bake. So I've decided that I'm going to teach myself. I went out and bought 'On Baking' and along with the ton of cookbooks on my shelf, I want to put them all to good use.

With this blog I hope to not only be chronicling what goes on in my kitchen but also the process of me trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing when it comes to baking. Sounds fun, right? I know I'm excited!
