I know I am happier than I have been in a while. I have a purpose and I am busy. I like being busy because it keeps me on my toes.
My cohort is uncommon because the first term is mixed Culinary Arts and Patisserie & Baking. There weren't enough Culinary to warrant a separate class and both programs have the same classes for term one. I like it and the mix of people. there are some younger people and those with more experience. One of things I try to be conscious of is that I do not socialize only with people like me. This could help a bit.
Last comments about week 1: I didn't cut myself the first day of knife skills! I wish I didn't need to know all the ways to make people sick because it's gross.
