Welcome to the Future

It's a bit of a running joke now. I appear, every couple of months, apologise for lack of posts and then repeat a few months later. I have now finished my course and am in that fun in between bit of not really student, not really graduate looking for a job. When I say fun, yes I do mean that kind of fun(!). 

It's funny, you get so caught up the degree and assignments etc you don't really consider what will happen after. I am now realising that I should have been thinking about what was going to happen after I graduate, when I was a mere fresher. Start em young is so true when it comes to getting that elusive graduate job. 

So far I've had one assessment centre interview which was very much like The Apprentice and I don't think I'd have been at all surprised if Lord Alan Sugar came in at some point to declare I was fired. With a few more interviews lined up, I have my fingers crossed. I can only hope. 

If that fails I could always start my own baking business, or maybe just bake for fun. Today I was looking up ways to use left over Dorset Cereals muesli, seeing as I don't drink milk and it seems a shame to waste good quality cereal. So if anyone has any ideas let me know. A bit of time baking will keep me busy and occupied. I really need some interesting ways to fill this weird bit of my life. Not quite one thing, not quite another.

  1. Seems like you're in the same situation as me. I understand the feeling of being not quite anything or anywhere. as for the baking thing...you could try making cereal muffins? Serve with sliced banana for brekkie. I've got a blog on what I'm doing during my jobless days if it helps at all! http://gutsy-grad.blogspot.com/

    1. Thanks for the comment. Sorry it has taken me a ridiculously long time to reply- I've been working on my other blog http://glitterandheels.wordpress.com so don't blog here anymore. I will take a look at your blog though :)

  2. Congratulations to you! It is good to a bit of R&R before thinking about what to do after college. What do you usually bake? Why not try and bake Gougeres? You can find a recipe here (). The site also has recipes on other delectable dishes that you might want to try!

    1. I bake all sorts of things - brownies, biscuits, cakes and bread (from a packet mix). Find it strangely relaxing and other people seem to enjoy my efforts hehe! Thanks for the link to the recipes - I will take a look :)
