It took me many of years to find out what I wanted to be when I grew up and I have to say it has been worth the wait. I am more exhausted than I have ever been -- working FT, going to night school FT and volunteering with chefs when I have ANY free time. However, I would not change it for anything.
I made a lot of mistakes and took a few wrong turns along the way.
Do I regret those? Not at all. I learned from each and everyone.
Plus if you never try, how will you ever know what you are good at?
I love, love, love school;
love my fellow chefs-to-be.
I have already cultivated some super close and special relationships with these folks, who will later become my colleagues.
You see? Being a Chef can become a competitive game, but we all really care about one another and want to create something good and succeed at it.
It's a nice feeling.
Last night, I volunteered to help with a chocolate making class and learned a lot from a few pastry students that will be graduating in 2 weeks.
They were super cool and we really liked them a lot.
They also told us that we will get some Chefs that are easier to learn from.
That is all I will say about that.
Oh and a perk of going to a culinary school is being fed by the culinary students.
Last night, we indulged in a huge buffet with some of the best food I have ever tasted.
We all had our plates piled high.
I felt like a Queen.
So, the weekend is now upon us. I have class til 11PM and then some classmates heading over to hang and chill on my rooftop.
Then MOMMY arrives Tuesday night!
I cannot wait to see her.
And after Mom leaves, my MIL arrives.
Then we get a week free and up come my Aunt and MawMaw!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
I plan on it.
And a question before I go:
Are you living your life to the fullest????
