I have exercised only once in the past two weeks.
I ate about a pound of vanilla bean buttercream frosting tonight.
I cried more this week than I have in the past few months.
I’m a bit of a mess.
It has almost been a month since I’ve last blogged, and I want to say I’m sorry. Life has truly been getting in the way, and to be honest, I feel like I’ve barely been cooking and I have not been baking at all.
I’ve been dealing with a few personal things the past month. I’m okay, but I have had a few things that have been weighing very heavily on my mind as well as a full academic schedule and work schedule this semester. I am thankful for almost a month of the semester being over, and I actually really love almost all my classes this semester. I’m sure I won’t be saying that in two weeks when my midterms are in full swing and I have a bunch of papers due, but this semester almost makes me sad in a way. I realize now that if I had followed what I had always enjoyed in school, I might have actually enjoyed the past four and half years of undergrad. It is what it is though and I just have to really make my last semester matter.
As my last semester of school winds down and my twenty-second birthday approaches, I find myself excited with the perspective of a new life ahead of me and terrified at the same time. I know I want to go to culinary school, but I’ve also realized I am in desperate need of some time off and getting my life together a bit.
Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, while I may be sporadic with my posting, I really do enjoy it and don’t plan on abandoning blogging any time soon. With that said, posts for the next two or three months might be a little more infrequent. I’m hoping to re-focus my blog once I graduate in December and maybe even redesign it a bit.
For now, I will leave you with these awesome cupcakes I made tonight.
Seriously, if you have not made these cupcakes yet, DO IT NOW! They are amazing. I also substituted vanilla bean paste for the vanilla in the frosting and the results are rather delicious if I do say so myself!
I hope you all have a wonderful week <3
