I had already decided that yesterday and today would be my goof-off days. Just relax and enjoy your freedom, I said to myself. You deserve a break from harsh reality. Next week you will dive into your future. Next week you will find yourself. Next week everything will fall into place.* Well, it's hard to do nothing!
I woke up early**, visited with my cousin in the morning, made some networking attempts and checked Facebook more times than I am going to tell you about.*** With nothing left to do, I decided to bake a chocolate cake. It came out amazing, tasted like heaven and other than that whole crumbling into pieces part, was perfect. Which brings me to my analogy...
Life is a chocolate cake.
Just because it falls to pieces, does not mean it doesn't taste delicious. Also, I whipped up some homemade frosting, and while applying this to my broken masses of chocolate, I discovered that it was able to hold the chunks together and in the end mask the ridges of the earthquake.****
Meanwhile, I no longer have co-workers to bring in baked goods for. Anyone want some cake? I use FedEx.
* No, I don't blindly believe this.
*** I am still not telling how many times!
**** Me attempting to flip the cake onto a cooling rack ***** This is absolutely NOT what my cake looks like. Mine looks better******
