Can You Help Me?


I know, I said I was back and then I went and disappeared on y’all again. Sorry about that. Jaw is still sore and only just starting to get back on my feet now, so should be blogging away again very soon. Have a few things up my sleeve, too, so keep an eye out for that.

In the meantime I have an announcement/request, and I’m really hoping some of you out there will be able to help.

I’ve been talking to a few people recently about my chosen career path. I’ve been trying to get into Theatre Education, looking for internships and ways in, fully prepared to have to do some office filing and tea making, but that’s the way it goes. At the same time I’ve been working part-time at a baby shop, doing some freelance photography, and, of course, cooking. Cooking a heck of a lot. As I’ve mentioned I’m in the process of developing some recipes for a cookbook. And so I’ve been doing even more cooking. And taking photos of food. And thinking about food. And writing about food. And eating food. And making the same recipe (with four different variations) over and over again. And writing food preparation time sheets. And writing dream menus. And dreaming about food. And then I thought, ‘I clearly love food and the process of creation excites me… so why am I trying so hard to get into theatre?!’

Long story short, I’m thinking about trying to turn the culinary pursuits into a job, and a job into a career. This is where you come in – any advice? I clearly love food and cooking, how on earth do I start to make that into a career? Honestly, I’d appreciate anything you can throw at me on the subject. Anything at all. You can even throw a chicken my way and I’d probably read something into it.

That’s all for now. More soon, promise. Until then, peace and love.
