I just received my official acceptance letter from Kendall College!!!!! *squeal* Kendall College is a culinary school (and business and education, but all that matters is CULINARY) in Chicago. I am going to be in the Baking and Pastry Arts program there starting in July.
It's just a slight change from what I was doing! I was going to Ivy Tech for Early Childhood Education until this past December. Long story short, it is just not what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I have been working as a nanny for a little over a year now, and although I adore the kids I watch, it has just really made me realize that I do not want to be working with kids as a career.
Food has always been a passion of mine. I love food. Thanks to a lot of thought and prayer, I am now pursuing something I really love. I didn't want to make any official announcement until it was for real. And now it is! I can't believe it. I also wanted to say thanks to those I know have prayed for me while I was trying to figure out what to do. Thanks for putting up with my, "I have no idea what to do with my life" stuff. I love you.
I can't wait for this new chapter of my life to begin, even though I am also nervous about moving to Chicago and in general just very intimidated by the whole thing! It is so comforting to know that God will always be with me whether I am here or there.
