I've recently graduated from culinary school and joined "Real World". This is my story of growing up. It's kinda like when you peek into the oven to see if your cookies are done... I'm still a little underdone, watch me bake.
I’ve loved these earrings since the first time I saw them. Too bad my Bad Ass is broke. Non the less, I have to give major props to my lady Mavis Farr. The creator of these and many more hand made items. Check out her gorgeous work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/sparklegarden
First order of business, My whole lent thing equals Fail!!! I’ve never been good at keeping up with that sort of thing. However I’m just about packed and ready to head back to Michigan. Which is good because I graduate with my Associated Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts… WHOA… breath… deep breaths… ON FRIDAY!!! It’s been a long time coming but the two years are just about over and it’s the real world for me.
I start my first out college job on Monday. I’ll be working at the Marquette Bread Co. for a definite week and then we’ll see about the summer. I’m 99.9% positive he’ll hire me after he actually gets to meet me and see what I’m capable of.
I suppose I should have worked on a one year or five year plan or something but I haven’t. That’s part of the reason I’m going home. I’m gunna get back in touch with me and figure out what makes me happy. Thats why I got into this business in the first place. I never wanted to “work”. I gotta find that job out there that allows me to enjoy everyday because life is just too short. Still gotta pay those bills, so we’ll see what happens.
As far a social life goes… I’m going to miss so many amazing people out here in NY. I know i’ll never see some of them again and that breaks my heart. However I’m looking forward to seeing all those people that saw me though these past two years from afar. I really couldn’t have done it without any of them. Thanks everyone!
This batch is about done. Time to fire up the mixer again… what should I make this time?
It’s days like today, where you’ve been going since the crack of dawn till after it sets but your friends are still more tired you worked hard in class but it just didn’t seem to be enough you still have an essay to write but you can’t find the information in order to write it your whole body aches but heaven forbid you say anything because then your whining you say you think your getting sick because your too busy to actually be sick admitting your sick only prolongs it so just keep pushing on mean while you need to get up and do it all over again and you really just want to be done with this whole things yet feeling bad because your not enjoying the blessing of what is happening right now thinking about how this is just another Tuesday so how am I going to make it in the “real world” there is no time to, breath.
I am once again reminded that “This Too Shall Pass” Thank you to thedailywhat:
New Music Video! OK Go - “This Too Shall Pass”
Directed by James Frost. Third single off the band’s recently released studio album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.
The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Synn Labs ( http://syynlabs.com/ ) over the course of several months.
