Let’s sit down and have a cup of tea. I’m drinking cream earl grey from Brooklyn Tea, it’s my latest favorite that I discovered from Unhappy Hour podcast (if you haven’t listened, you’re missing out).
You can have tea, coffee or matcha, or whatever you please. I used to drink coffee, but I stopped because I no longer enjoyed it, plus I got a headache every time I stopped drinking it and hated having to have to it, you know?
While we sipped at our drinks, I would tell you that I have a never ending list of things I want to bake but I never seem to have the time, or I can never decide what to bake, so I don’t bake at all. I did make cinnamon rolls last weekend (I wrote about them here) and I’m making croissants this weekend. I’m trying to focus on baking so one day I can fulfill my lifelong dream of baking all day replacing my 9-5 job.
I would also tell you I’m currently finding it hard to find the time to read, and I have 5 books backlogged in my Libby app and I feel overwhelmed to read them all. If I could read all day I would, but I always feel so guilty when I lay around and do nothing, especially in a busy town like LA.
I would mention how there’s an extension course at UCLA that I would love to take; it’s a class on global business and international trade, which is what my job is in, but there’s no way I can afford it, unless my work would pay for it. Should I ask? I feel weird asking. I probably won’t ask. It would also be another thing on my plate, and time is of the essence these days. I also want to start taking baking classes around LA, because why not take advantage while I’m here?
I would recount that my birthday was fun. We decorated cakes at Milk Bar on Melrose, ate lunch at Eataly (the butternut squash ravioli is my favorite), came home for a nap, and then saw Emma. at the Hollywood Dome theater. Overall, a very Sara day!
I would ask about you, what’s new with you, how was your week, what are you drinking?
