Bathing in the Internet – Post 4

1. Born and raised in the Midwest, there are just some things folks from other parts of the country don’t.get. If you’re a Midwesterner, you’ll get a kick out of this article.
2. My friend Kate sent this post to me on Friday, it really moved me. It was also ironic since earlier in the day I had a conversation with one of my coworkers in regards to women who are never satisfied with the way they look, which is almost every woman. WHY do we do this to ourselves!?! I’ve yet to come across women who has in or is currently struggling with body issues. I’ve been there, and I find myself there again and again. But luckily when I find myself in this negative place I quickly recommit to love my body the way it is and to stop being so hard on myself. Oh well if I miss a workout and who cares if I indulge in amazing food….I’m a baker, I’m a foodie – but I’m also a person who really enjoys turning up the tunes and getting my workout on. I need to realize that I do my best to live a balanced lifestyle and that is good enough for me 🙂
3. Speaking of re-committing, I’m pretty sure I started this blog to showcase my baking skills —– UM, yep I’ve been failing at this task. To be honest, I just don’t have the right equipment, lighting, skills (blah, blah, blah) to show you amazing step by step pictures – I spend hours looking at these amazing cooking blogs with their fancy photography work and I hate to admit this but it’s discouraging 😦 I know poor me – pity party for one. BUT then I remind myself, practice makes perfect. So, I’m going to recommit to the baking portion of this blog and I’m starting with this bread, and those and OMG this!
4. Starting a blog mostly about baking isn’t just about making tasty treats, it’s also about writing! Over the past year, writing has intrigued more and more so much that I wiggled my way into taking a writing class for work. While it’s mostly about business writing, there’s a ton of relatable information that cross over into my blog writing. I yearn to become recognized as a decent writer and truly work at it every single day. This is why I like reading articles about other writer’s perspectives, like this one.
5. I’d love to be hanging out in any one of these hammocks right about now – except hanging off the side of a mountain —- not my cup of tea 🙂
