I did not die or go into witness protection or otherwise cease to exist on the Internets. I was experimenting with my forms of expression and such. That, and finishing my philosophy degree, doing a year of service in AmeriCorps, and working event logistics for a multi-million dollar fundraiser.
So… I’ve been busy.
I tried the YouTube thing for a while and while I liked being able to present what I do in a more visual format, I’m just not good on camera. That, and making a post is so labor-intensive. While I’m a fairly capable video editor, shooting, editing, and posting a cooking video would take at least 8 hours –that’s a full day’s worth of work to get new content out. (Not to mention that actually making the food takes at least twice as long as it normally would.) Whereas writing takes a couple hours, I snap a few photos while I’m cooking, do some quick photoshop edits, and MAGIC! NEW CONTENT!
What’s changed in my life…
I live in San Francisco now. It’s beautiful here and I never want to leave. I moved here for my year of AmeriCorps service in February of 2012. I have a partner, his name is Tom. He is also vegan but he’s not a cook like me (which is probably one of the reasons our relationship works, I couldn’t handle being in a relationship with someone who was as skilled with and as opinionated about food as I am). We have a dog, his name is Pancakes. Pancakes the dog also has a blog, which, once I start updating again, I will post a link to. Aaaaaannnnddddd…….. I am currently unemployed.
That’s probably what has prompted the blogging, all this time on my hands.
Soon, I hope to re-do the blog layout and make some delicious content. I’ve got a backlog of recipes I’ve created in the meantime and need to get them out into the world somehow. So, let’s see what I can get done around here.
