I am feeling that dreading feeling again. Today we received our directed study choices and
I feel like I am back on top of that icey, cold, howling mountain, looking down at the fog below,
feeling my pulse quicken to a deafening pace, with the cooling blood rushing past my ears. It is
only five more months to graduation...and the courses seem so much harder still. 7 more courses,
five more months. Can I do it? Can i?
Where's the friggin' schnapps when you need it?!?!?!
Choice number one was for a bakery sponsory company. It was to prepare a paneer pattie that was supposed to substitute for tofu patties, choice two nutritional labelling in preparation for the passed bill of new labelling regulations, and choice 3 was using different films to prepare a gel-pack to keep foods in the safe zone longer. R&D sounds cool, but nutritional labelling is a helluva lot easier...and then gel-pack also sounds interesting...so whatever I get I hope i will like.
It was a boring day. Was given the chance to sleep in but volunteered instead to arrive at school at 8:30 for a group project...product development of...our choice: churros!! We're planning on developing an at-home churros where they are half-fried first at factory, then packaged in aluminum oven-ready packets, then liberally sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon for a tasty, hot crunchy treat!!!! yaaaay....
After a two hour meeting, got to sit through a two hour lecture with almost a liter of water in me ...we had been promised a break, but there was none!! When Anne, my instructor asked if we should take a break after that two hours I was like, "uhhh..You know what. Yeah. I need a break." then proceeded to rush to the girls' room.
Spent almost $1500 at school paying tuition and buying books. Luckily my instructors are nice and are tailoring the courses around notes instead of $200 textbooks. Only $20 were spent on ELEX course notes and lab manual. phew.
Went to the gym and proceeded to basically die on the stairmaster, came home, mucked around, and went out for Japanese food at Van-Ya on Kingsway near London Drugs. This is one busy little mom n' pop Japanese restaurant. I think we've gone there for some 10-12 years! I totally pigged out on yummy katsudon with DELICIOUS sweet sauteed onions. (someone said that you are what you eat...hehehe. he. that's not THAT funny.)
Yesterday me and mark were playing around with biore heat masks. It was hot dude!! I'm glad he liked it...and afterwards, our skin was soft and smooth. ahhh. It was kinda funny cuz he ended up shoving my face under the faucet to wash all the clay off.
Ahh. Have a good night folks.
