School Update

Last Friday was my first day of school. It went pretty well. We watched a couple videos about chocolate making, and the teacher gave us samples of different types of chocolate. It is supposed to be a four hour class, but the teacher let us out after two hours. That was fine with me, though. I had stuff I needed to do.

Yesterday, I went to school to get my uniform for the class. It actually isn't a bad uniform, so I won't mind wearing it. Except maybe the pants. The pants are checkered black and white. I don't have problems with the colors, just the pattern. But I'll get used to it. Today, my mom took me to Bed Bath and Beyond to get some other materials for the class.

I need a candy thermometer with a probe, 2 plastic/rubber spatulas, an offset spatula, and a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. I got the plastic spatulas and the offset spatula, but the store didn't have the other stuff I needed. I'll have to either go to school to get the rest of the stuff, or some other store that carries that stuff. I need them for this Friday's class, so I will have to get going real soon.

I can't wait to start making stuff in this class. It seems like a lot of fun. I just hope it isn't too difficult. If it is, and I can't handle it, I'll probably have to drop out. But it's only once a week, so I don't think it will be too bad.

Well, that's all for now. More to come later.

School Starts Tomorrow

I can't believe school starts tomorrow. I kind of wish I had more time to prepare for school, but I guess I need to start sometime. Plus, the class I'm taking is only once a week, so it won't be as stressful on me as other classes could be. I just hope I don't have panic attacks during class, since it's a 4 1/2 hour class. I've been dealing with depression/anxiety/panic attacks for a few years now, and last semester, I had problems with panic attacks.
Though, even with the emotional stress, I still did well last semester. I got straight A's, which, of course, I was happy about. Though, I was kind of surprised. I didn't expect straight A's. But I'm happy. I hope I do well in this coming class, as well.
I've been looking for a job to have on the days I'm off, as well. I really hope I get a job soon. I really need the money. And something to do. Right now, the closer to home the job is, the better, since I don't have a license and a car yet. When I have the money, I'm going to get a license, so I don't have to be so dependent on others.
Well, that's all for now. More to come later.

4 Days and Counting

School starts in 4 days, for me. I am excited/nervous/anxious. I don't know what will happen, since it is a 4 1/2 hour-long class, and I've been dealing with some emotional stuff lately. So I don't know how I would handle that long of a class. But, I'm looking forward to the class.
I've been applied to a bunch of places for jobs, over the last week or 2. I really hope I get a job soon. I need the money. And the job. The first thing I want to get after I get a job is a cell phone. I really need one.
Well, that's all for now. More to come later.
