New design & new beginings

A new design rings in a new era for me. I had every intention of having a customised theme on this site since I set it up but because I was so busy in Advertising Land I never felt like playing designer after work. Now that I’ve left Advertising Land behind I finally have time to think. I also feel a million times better. So here’s the new design for the new me.

The new beginings: As of tomorrow I start a 6 month course studying Commercial Cookery at TAFE. I’m very excited about this but more than a little nervous. I’ll be the mature age student who’s vowed to pay attention. I remember how annoying this was when I was a snotty 18 year old fresh out of high school. I guess I’d better not be too annoying as everyone will have knives, and I’m in the South so they know how to use them. I’m hoping to gain vaulable knowledge on the commercial aspects of running a food business and then in the second half of the year you’ll see me hopefully launch my own food service. Exciting!

As for training, I’m taking the rest of the week off. I’ve been training pretty hard for a while now and have a few injuries and niggling things that need attending to.  Then I’m gonna start from the ground up and really get things rolling.
