Journal Entry - January 6th 2016
A new chapter of my life has begun, not independent of the those chapters leading up to it but built up their very foundation, this new one is not the pinnacle or summit but a stair case perhaps layered on the foundation. This new chapter, we'll call chapter 19 “Starting Culinary School.”
As some of you may know, I've dreamed of opening my own restaurant since I was five without falter. So naturally I've been lead to take Culinary Management for college. I feel this is all quiet fitting for this Life After Gluten blog as the furthering of my culinary education will transpire in the quality of recipes I am able to create and post on this blog and in my, Lord willing, cook book to follow.
My first day at college, was orientation not January 6th but the 5th and let me say I was nervous but curious and hopeful too. My main source of “nervousness” stems from the fact that I'm the youngest of four children so, though I treasure time alone, there is always one of my siblings or parents around. I've never appeared an insecure person... when one of my family members is around or soon to be, however, when they are not well I'm not familiar with this feeling and it will take me a little while yet to fully get my “sea legs” back so to speak.** But I thank God that I don't think this will take too long as already by the second day (my first day of real classes) I felt sure and in God hands.
So my classes, of the two I had that day I was and am excited, still with a few butterflies***. The lab course will be high demand but I think God's put it in me to do and also I think he wants to help me develop emotional muscle and great place for that is in a high demand, hot, busy kitchen! :) The second class is called Communications for Business yet despite the sounds of it I think it's going to me a very active, hands on, and fun course.
I hope you are able to enjoy the benefits of my culinary growth on your kitchen tables as you continue to check out my recipe posts every 2 weeks!
What about you?
Are you starting, in, or graduated from college? Please tell me about your first day.
** I am to say get comfortable and confident again.
