After over 3 years of sharing my quarter-life cooking with you all, it’s with a heavy heart and a grumbling stomach, that I end this chapter of my virtual food story and say goodbye to BGSK.
If the mid-twenties have taught me anything so far, it’s that this time of life is one of constant transition and questioning. Not just for me. Most of my dinner dates recently have been dominated by exasperated, anxious, and excited friends across the table, expressing pangs of uncertainty related to jobs, relationships, finances, and that big scary capital letter term: THE FUTURE.
Over the past few months, as I grappled with those same tough questions—where do I want to go in life? What makes me happy? Should I really be spending so much money on One Kings Lane? —It became clear that what I need is a change.
Pressing that life “reset” button is scary, but also exciting. When I sat down to write this final post, I thought a lot about the last big change I made, over two years ago, when I decided to end my stint in corporate America, sans gold fish or Renée Zellweger, and move my cubical to my small kitchen for good. The hardest part then, as it is now, was saying goodbye to the people I worked with. Today, there are so many more of you who have made my “job” over the past 3+ years an amazing experience, and I am so grateful to have gotten to know you all.
