On the other hand, I'm so excited about Autumn desserts I could burst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next week in class we're having a halloween cake contest! We can make anything halloween related we want! I'm so excited. I already have a design in mind. We're doing it now because we won't have this particular Chef after the end of this month. We'll be in plated desserts during Halloween. Anyways.....we're actually going to have voting going on for the best cake. I'm sure the culinary classes will be invited to come in and vote. The winner will get bragging rights but it's going to be so much fun.

The following week we get to make up our own cake similar to the idea of the cake in my sig where we take any techniques and methods used over the course of the 6 weeks and apply it to our own cake. I'm going to make a layered brown sugar spice cake. In between each layer I'm going to line it with a caramel sauce, toasted pecans, and an apple/cinnamon filling that I'll also make. I'm then going to frost it with a buttercream lightly flavored with cinnamon and then top it all off with marzipan apples. It's gonna rock. I can't wait to turn in my paper next week on the cake. My Chef is going to freak out. Last week when we made the brown sugar cake my Chef (who is literally a size ZERO around the waist) turned to us, after eating a piece of it, and said "oh my god you guys, I fricken love cake...." I love her.

I shot 50 styles last night which comes out to 350 images. That blew away my record! We've been slammed so I'm all about the OT while we can get it. I just got up and as soon as I shower I'm heading back in. OT is so much easier when you really like what you do!

That sounds wonderful.

I've been wondering if I should try an online dating service or not. I'm 31, not getting any younger, and working at a senior center is not a great place to meet guys (well, guys that I would be interested in anyway). Then I think, "screw it, I like being single and being able to do whatever the hell I want." But then I don't want to be alone forever . . .

I just emailed the final draft of my cover letter to my career counselor at school. Once I hear back from her there's nothing standing in my way, other than myself , to start sending out my resume. The idea of actually applying to work in a real kitchen still has me ready to pass out.

If you have your resume done, then by all means send it out . It'll be a good experience going out on interviews even if you don't wind up taking a job there.

I haven't had much luck at it. I had a streak a few years ago where I talked to a bunch of guys all at once, had coffee with 2 of them but then that was that. One of the guys was really outgoing in all of his emails and really adorable in all of his pictures but he was a dud in person and not all that cute either. Not that looks are the top of importance but I think he posted pics of himself from about 10 years before. I hate when people do that!

the scary part is that I'm going to apply to places to work at for my externship out of state. So in most cases I have to call the hotels and ask to speak to the executive Chef in charge of hiring. Those Chefs ask all sorts of really yucky questions.

^The last date I went on was a blind date with one of the seniors' grandsons. He was boring, acted like he wasn't really interested and I had a bad cold. I left after 20 minutes . That was a long time ago.

^ Yeah, it was bad .

I have another senior trying to set me up with her 40 year old son and I keep putting her off because I am really not interested. And I don't like her that much either .

I don't have to go out of state but I really want to.

I've thought about Disney but I don't like the living arrangements. It's a 3-4 month commitment in staff housing with up to 4 people in each furnished apartment. The pay isn't much and we do actually have to pay a weekly rent fee that comes out of our paychecks. It would be amazing experience but I think I'd go nuts living with 3 stangers who would probably be 10 years younger than me. Also I wouldn't have much money to live off of.

My cousin was an intern in the business office at disneyworld. She loved her actual job but hated the rest of being there.

I hate test day. I did really good on the written and practical, A on both. But my score on the practical wasn't as good as it could have been. An A is an A right? I always want 100% or at least closer to 100 than 90.
