Oh hi! Today is non-food day. It’s just ‘thoughts’ day or maybe ‘decisions’ day. If you’re a regular here in Woman, you could probably figure that I post ( food posts?) food recipes one after another. I am thankful that none of you has come to me yet and urged me to change the name of this blog to Food or Cake Scribbles or something. Well, once upon a time I actually did change Its name, but it kinda felt different, It did not feel like me at all.So from then on I decided that Woman Scribbles is my blog name and that we’ll stick together thru thick and thin.
So back to thoughts day.One day this week I will be receiving a student loan application form in the mail. Student loan application, meaning going back to school thing.Books.Homework. Yes its thrilling!I have been wanting to go back to school since I arrived in Winnipeg, but to make the long story short, I ended up (still) happily practicing my field of work as a chemist. I am not miserable about that. I love my work and the fact that I work to help provide for my family but a passionate part of me still wants to do something that will bring a different level of fulfillment. Maybe its safe to say that what I do now does not fulfill that part.
Now this is the part where you take a deep breath because you are about to enter my scattered and cluttered mind.Do it.
I have decided that I will take online classes buuuuut deciding what course to take is a source of confusion for me.
I have thoughts of working from home and not be away from my daughter.I have thoughts of being in the publishing world,to write and inspire and meet people.I have thoughts of being in the healthcare,for practical and economic reasons.
I have also imagined taking up Professional Baking and Patisserie course but that would that mean working in a big and busy kitchen? I am not sure if I want that. I love baking, I love the sophistication of baking in my home. I’m not sure about the real thing-hot kitchen kind of baking.
But still, the idea of being in a baking class thrills me. But is Professional baking ever offered in an online program? I don’t think so.
Now where do all these thoughts leave me? You see my mind goes in all directions. It is funny how I create a dilemma out of an application that has not been approved yet and a form that hasn’t even arrived yet. If I can all test drive everything to see how will they work out. Maybe I am just too scared to make a wrong decision.Maybe I am just nervous about getting started.
But as in all aspects of life, I am believer of this- Always follow your heart.
and sometimes, its worth it to take a leap of faith.
I have not come to a clear and final decision yet. But I will let you know.
If it was you? what would you decide on?
Any thoughts? Let me know.
