My previous post was about how I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life right?
Well, 10 seconds after I posted that piece... I realized "DUH!" food.
I consider myself as a foodie.
So what did my little eager-thinking brain do? Google it of course.
Now, I've researched my way towards careers involving food before. I even went back to the beginning of this blog to see how indecisive I have been over the past few years on what I wanted to become when I grew up. According to this blog, I left off at wanting to be a RD but quit as soon as I realized how science-math related it was.
In case I come back crawling to this post to see where I was at in a few months or years. I wanted to make note of what I was thinking at this moment.
I am currently reading this article that discusses "top 10 jobs for foodies", I'm going to finish reading it and make a list of which are most appealing to me.
10. Food Stylist [self-explanatory]
9. Food Educator [teaching children; naturally drawn to gardening and cooking]
8. Food Entrepreneur [creating new foods]
6. Food Writer/Blogger [passionate about food && writing]
2. Nutritionist ["culinary knight in shining armor"]
Well there you have it, out of 10, these are the ones I found most delectable. I mean, interesting.
Now I'm going to make a tally chart of how many times I come across a certain "title" that catches my eyes:
Food Critic/Writer [xxx]
Baker/Pastry Chef [xx]
Hmm, so it looks like these are my top 3 winners. Not too surprised since these are probably the 3 I constantly think of when it comes to careers in the food industry that would suit me well. Not bad at all.
*Another thing to keep in mind, studying nutrition via degree route involves a lot more heavy science-based courses whereas certification programs are more towards "practical" nutritional education.
From this point on, what I need to is: whenever I hesitate on what I want to do in life or like to do in life --> focus on the word "food". I want to eat food, I want to make food, I want to work with food, I want to write about food, I want to take pictures of food. Food, food, and more food. I should basically stamp the word "food" on my forehead!
What would be the next step for me be?
Perhaps, make a foodie blog right?
Uh, yea... unfortunately I have thought of that idea many times over. However, I can't seem to get a grip on how I would structure such a blog. Maybe, that will be my homework.
Until next time,
