2013 marks the start of a grand new adventure for me. I’m out of school for the first time ever. Between primary and secondary education, I’m sitting at 16-years of continuous education with nothing but a Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering to show for it. That’s it.
When I started college, I was “promised” a few things. First and foremost, I was promised 100% job-placement. I was also promised my pick of career path. They neglected to mention that the job market was on the decline. And with engineering becoming more and more popular – largely due in part to the high rate of job placement and the buckets of money that you’re told you can get – there are less and less jobs and more and more market competition. Next thing you know, you’re temp-to-hire and the job is being liquidated before your very eyes.
There are three things in this world that I’m fantastic at: blowing things up, drinking fine beers, and cooking. It’s a niche market. While I navigate the job market, it was suggested I take up blogging. What will I blog about? Cooking? Eating? Chemistry? Beer? Bourbon? Definitely bourbon…
If you have questions about any of those things, drop me a line and I’ll happily do my best to answer.
