The End of An Era and Growing Up

Hello everyone!

I'm back! Yeah, it's been a while, but university sort of caught up with me and took up all my time. Oh! Did I mention I also work at Ryman Stationery (not to be mistaken for stationAry). Yeah so work and uni took up all my time and I have not had a single day to myself since the second semester started. But now I'm back! Why?


Yes that's right, I'm no longer a university student, and now a fully fledged adult...I say that with no small amount of terror...

Ok, so I'm not completely independent. I still live with my parents, I don't have to pay rent or a mortgage or even bills, but I no longer have to worry about studying and education and well basically schoolwork. What I have to worry about now is finding a job that suits my level of education...which will be a feat in itself...well at least for now I have a few projects lined up, and hopefully they burst me forward in my career. Lord only knows if I succeed.

Anyway, other than that I've finally decided to learn how to cook some easy dishes to feed myself. Yes my mom still cooks meals for dinner and we a lot of leftovers because of them, but she has agreed that once I start learning dishes for myself, she'll ease up on the cooking and let me take over, when I grow a bit more confident in myself.

Now for those of you who actually know me, I've never really cooked for myself, except for breakfasts and basically smoothies and sandwiches. I've never actually had to stand at the stove and cook proper meals for myself, so it was quite daunting when I cooked yesterday my very first chicken bake. I didn't know how it would turn out or if it would taste of anything other than burnt or raw.

So here's what it looked like while I was cooking it...

And here's what it looked like when it was done...

It's a far cry from what I expected it to be...

I got the recipe on Facebook...well actually I got it from Buzzfeed. If you want to try out for yourself, the link is below.

Anyway. I had expected the cooking to go wrong somewhere, because I've never had to cook anything besides breakfast before, so it was a surreal experience to try something so new. But I managed to do it, and it was quite tasty!

Thank you Buzzfeed!

Ok, so it was easy to make, but hey! I get points for credit anyway! So when I made it, I realised, I'm actually growing up and learning how to be an adult...oh god! I'm an adult now! That is exciting and terrifying at the same time! Is this really what it's like to be an adult! Well, I can't complain, I've got a few more decades to live it through, so hopefully the fates look kindly down on me and don't give me such a hard time!

Well, let me know what you think! Have you ever had that feeling before, when was your first experience at cooking, what was it like? What are your stories? I'd actually like to know.

As always, do with this post what you will! This is FeatherCharm, signing out! God Bless!
