Well, hey, I am actually enjoying school for the first time in a long while. I mentioned that I started on Monday in a previous post, so let me fill you in on what went down. Firstly, I have the smallest class in the school at 10 people. And boy are they all unique. There's Shera who's a grandmother and incredibly sweet, Jen has an attitude and a good heart, Tara is funny, and shy Allan is my lab partner. I lucked out and got the class of awesome people. My teachers are awesome, too. I will admit my lab teacher scares the crap out of me, but she's funny. Never have I been so excited and terrified all at once. It's thrilling. I actually get up in the morning WANTING to go to class. Also, I will admit it's taking a toll on my body. My hands are sore from re-learning to hold the knife and my back and legs ache from standing for 3 hours every day. Also I have said good-bye to long nails, they aren't allowed in cooking. Or soft hands. Ah, the glories of cooking. I'll type out some more later. I have to go study now. If I don't memorize these key flavorings by Monday I'll be in the hall being yelled at again.

I got my new haircut. I am trying to get a picture of it onto my Facebook so people can see it. I'll try to upload the picture here, too. My Mummy tells me its a very artsy haircut to which I said a chef is but an artist whose medium is food. My mom will kill me. She hates when I do this kind of thing. Last time I took a manga character's hair style and used it for my graduation picture and graduation. She was not pleased but she stopped complaining... eventually. I also am saddened by Billy Mayes the Oxyclean Guy passing on. I will miss him because I enjoyed his show Pitchman on Discovery. I know, I have eclectic tastes in shows. I am so excited to be starting school on Monday. Monday!! My orientation is tomorrow. Wahhhhh. My parents are still in Hawaii, still enjoying themselves. Oh and Aunt Angela's second baby will be a girl. My family's a freaking harem, nothing but girls. Yay for frilly things!! Thanks for the support, Casey, you are right the God and Goddess work in nice ways, no? Until next time.
