Tomorrow afternoon will be my first class at Le Cordon Bleu, the first class in the Patisserie and Baking diploma. Just a month ago I went to the school website and requested information, a little more than 3 weeks since I went to an open house tour and applied, 2 weeks sorting out the financial aid, and I still can't believe it's happening. I can recite this and yet don't understand how I got here. I love science and have a strong interest in biology and medicine. I did a bachelor's degree with the intent of going to medical school.
I guess life or someone had other plans for me. I hope it's fate that I ended up here instead, because I'm not quite sure what I'm doing. I am no longer following a plan. It's scary and exciting. I'm excited to learn and afraid of the loans I'm taking out. I fear failure but dream of beautiful, edible pastries. So I am going to run with this, ran and anticipate enjoyment, plan to have fun, see where it takes me.
