So I know I haven’t posted anything for a few months. Our lives have been extra busy the last few months as we have recently just moved to New York! My husband was offered a job with Uber over here and starts in February! We can’t wait!
Now I’m currently sitting in a small studio serviced apartment in the heart of Koreatown, New York. It is pretty cold outside (1 degree Celsius) and has been cold the last few days. Something we’re not 100% used to considering the day we left Melbourne, it was supposed to be a sweltering 39 degrees!
As my husband will be working full time, I figured, what should I do with myself? Plenty of people were telling me to be a lady of leisure but I don’t think it’s something that I could do. I think I would be bored out of my brains! I also didn’t want to do just a random job either, especially since I’ve heard that New York doesn’t exactly pay amazingly for a random kind of job. Also I might add, since I am here as a dependent on my husbands visa, I technically can’t work for 3 months anyways. 3 months! Even if I wanted to find a whatever job, 3 months of doing nothing would drive me crazy!
Because of this, I have decided to go back to school to study something I love… what is that you ask? Pastry of course!!!
I enrolled into a 6 month Professional Pastry Arts program at the International Culinary Centre a few months ago and got accepted! My official start date is on the 13th February so a bit less than 3 weeks to go! It’s crazy! I have an orientation day that is on the 9th February so that will be exciting! I’ll get to meet the teachers and the other students too!
It’s a bit surreal that we’re here after knowing about this for so long but we can’t wait for the next chapter of our lives to start!
Stay tuned! I plan on updating my blog as the 6 months of pastry school evolve!
