A Hobby not a Career

I have always had a passion for food and photography. I recently discovered that cooking and baking will just be a hobby for me and not a career. Those of you who have been following me for awhile know that I was pretty set on going to Johnson and Wales for a baking and pastry degree.

I have always been interested in pyschology and the way the mind works but I don’t exactly want to be someone’s “shrink”. I really like being in the action of things and using critical thinking. I also like figuring out why people do things that they do. So I researched some pyschology related jobs and came up with an FBI profiler. I know, WAY different than making cupcakes. Have you ever seen the X-Files? It was in season back in the early 90’s. I obviously didn’t watch it because I wasn’t even born yet, but back in tenth grade I got hooked on the show. I love it and it has always been my favorite show since. (I am actually watching the shows a second time recently) Anyways, I have always dreamed about working for the FBI because the X-Files glorified it and made it look like they had a new case out of the office everyday. But I definitely could see myself studying the minds of criminals and the crime committed to try and figure out who the criminal is.

Back to the original topic, I’ve thought about it a lot in the past month and what the future would hold for me and it isn’t what I would like to do day in and day out. On the positive side, I will continue my blog and facebook page because I do love to cook and bake. You can follow me to see me experiment with new recipes or post on my old favorites. If you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share and have me post on, leave a comment below or email me at: achefinthyme@gmail.com. I would love to hear your feedback (including constructive criticism) so I can improve. Thank you to all of my followers and if you are just visiting to see what my blog is about, I would love to have you along on my culinary adventure!
