After graduating from college, I immediately starting looking for jobs. Over the past year that I have been graduated from college, I have worked four jobs. Seriously. I got shot down, yelled at, belittled, developed friendships, acquired skills and acquired enough money to be renting an apartment. I am seriously growing up.
So what have I learned from all these jobs and experiences? It is that I need to continue pursuing what I really love-food and health. I felt proud that I got all those jobs but never found myself connecting to any of them. My mom suggested that it is all a sign. A sign that I was not born to be a receptionist or front desk coordinator. I was born to make a difference, to use my compassion and emotional intelligence to help others live healthier, happier lives. Which is why I have made the decision to pursue graduate school to be a registered dietitian.
Although I know this blog has about two loyal readers, one of which is my mother, I like to think that one day it will turn into a career. That this blog will serve as a stepping stone to my career of writing, testing and documenting healthy recipes. If not, this blog serves as my creative release. Something all of use need.
To all readers, please stay tuned. I have been busy in my kitchen the past few months, and I cannot wait to share it with all you beautiful souls.
Until then, here are some pictures that I hope will summarize these past couple of years.
