Continuing the hard work

Well I've come to the realization that trying to keep time to write this blog is hard! Considering how much time I spend dedicated to my studies. For instance I'm putting the final touches to my Skills of Meatcutting project as I write this entry. I never would've guessed how much fun I have had in this class. People around here always say that it is the hardest freshmen course here. I'm enjoying myself!! Granted when you get to deal with raw meat all day, so I can't get the smell off my hands. That part is a little nauseating to be honest. But you ask me where a particular cut of beef, lamb, or pork. I'm pretty sure I can name where it came from. Chef Vaillancourt is absolutely nuts, in the best way possible. His quirky teaching style makes it really easy to learn the course material. 

In other news things here are going well. Still being the nerd occasionally. Just got thorough the longest week ever. The tuesday through friday week was horrible... threw off everything. Sleep schedule mostly.... the most important thing here. 

Time to hit the sack!

Something old, something new

Alright I live though I know I haven't updated the blog in a little over a month.

Here's a brief look into what's happened in the last month.

Started and finished Fundamentals with a B. Started Storeroom.... we're currently on day 8 on monday when we get back (1/9/11) Then I start Meatcutting.

Was on break the last two weeks now I'm getting ready to drive back to my grandma's house to deliver her car back to her thankfully she allowed me to borrow it to drive myself to see my other family 4 hours away. After delivering said car back to her I have to wait until 11:45 that evening to catch a bus back to Providence. Arrive back by like 10:30 then catch a bus from there back to campus.... and thus to fold laundry and iron and make everything all nice and clean for class on monday. Oh and doing some sanitation work and study produce...... yes that's right produce. My practical exam is being able to identify 30-50 items of produce by sight alone. We'll see how I do. I'll probably make flashcards or something on saturday after getting everything else done.
