Welcome to Sugar Cubed.
This blog is an excuse to bake. Having just moved from London to Cambridge for job as a science geek scanning human brains, I have found myself with an excess of free time. Having just finished university, I am starting a new phase of my life. Giant metropolis to small town (where, incidentally, I know no one), student to young professional; the most striking difference to my life so far has been that I now have TIME. Not just time to get things done, but free time to myself. When I was a student, there was always an essay to write, a paper to read, a lecture to prepare for or a dissertation to agonise over. There was always something I could be doing, and when there wasn’t (or even when there was), I had friends to see. There was always SOMETHING I could be doing.
Now, when I leave work, that’s it. As soon as I shut my office door, I can switch off. I’m guessing this isn’t going to last forever. So for now, while I settle in to the sleepy town that Cambridge seems to be and struggle to make friends, I’m going to take advantage of my time for ME and bake.
