So with blind confidence, I announced to my co-workers that I would soon be bringing in different cakes for them to tase as I honed my skills and accepted my destiny as a cake baker. No one could tell me anything. (You can probably guess how this ends.)
My dream is to be a writer and that one day you, dear reader, would purchase my book and find some sort of enjoyment or positive change. That may take awhile. In the meantime, I’ve put most of my efforts towards smaller goals like this blog. This blog is the culmination of my own personal […]
One thing you can expect entering the workforce and learning a new job is that dreaded day you make a mistake. It always starts off so well; your new employer finally starts to trust you and your work ethic when, BAM, out of the blue, you make a huge mistake that threatens discredit all your […]
