Daydreaming

by Danny Zawacki

Sometimes I wonder if I really missed my calling in life. Most of my day is centered around emailing and de elopement and other tech related things but my mind wanders to what I’m cooking for dinner. Like a ton of my resting mind thinks about food.

Yesterday a co-worker of mine mentioned she tried making pasties only to be thwarted by her husband not wanted the calories in the dough. I then decided to make those for dinner instead of whatever I would have done with the defrosting chicken breasts. They took a while to make, but turned out great and left Ellie and I with leftovers for a few days of lunch.

Today I spent the day thinking about what I would do with pasta for dinner tonight. I thought maybe I could throw together a quick meat sauce and then my mouth watered the rest of the day thinking about it.

So I wonder if my time in college getting a degree in English was wasted. I don’t work using my English degree. I do tech management. Even that ki d of bores me, when I think about it.

I’ve often thought about how if I could do college all over again, I’d go to culinary school instead. I’ve looked to see what the cost and time commitment would be to do it now as well. I found this it will ever happen, too much of a risk for now, but it’s nice to day dream about.

What would you do different if you could redo your early twenties?
