I'm back!...after a very long break

I feel horrible for neglecting this blog for the past month. At first it was laziness...I wanted to take a break after that road trip with my parents. Then my computer died and there was nothing I could do. Don't get me wrong, I didn't stop baking during this time...Just kinda stopped sharing.

A lot has happened since then. I feel like my whole world did a big flip. My plane landed in Vancouver last night and I hauled back 200lbs of luggage that packed away the last 4 years of my life. If you have been reading my previous posts just before the school year ended, you'd know that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I had several scenarios laid out in my head and a billion possible places I could be. Vancouver was never one of them.

After a 3 year relationship, the concept of being "single" again made me realize how much I wanted to be spoiled by my parents. During our 2-week roadtrip, they spoiled me to death and now I'm too greedy to let it go. That was one reason I came back. The second? Well, they are building a house in West Vancouver that we'll be moving into, and I demand the privilege of designing the kitchen.

So here's the plan: I'm going to pick up everything related to real estate. Construction law, residential law, interior designing, and whatever else I find interesting along the way. I also want to work part-time in a bakery to keep up what I love doing the most. Baking at home seems too unrealistic now that I don't have 20 guy friends ready to consume my calorie-dense sweets.

I'm also going to change my diet from a chocolate-and-cereal diet to a veggie-and-protein diet. That will start....tomorrow. I'm a bit anxious at this point because there is so much to do and a new lifestyle to get used to. The bright side is, my mom paid for my groceries and cooked for me today!

In terms of this blog, I'm going to put a bit more effort into it. I will be posting the rest of my restaurant reviews from my trip and the fancy desserts that I've made since. Hint: including a Boston cream pie! Yum! In fact, I'm also gonna start growing my own herbs and vegetables now that I have a full garden to work with. Then all I'll need will be some chickens to lay me eggs.
