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.
