New Life, New Job

Thursday I start at Meridian Wine & Spirits, just up the road here in Lafayette. My mom isn't happy about this because liquor stores get robbed at a higher frequency than say, Kitchen Affairs-type places.
Its a "keep it classy-San Diego" type of place, as Will Ferrell would say. Upscale in a nice neighborhood.
I really think my chances are higher of dying in a car accident, given the current statistics and my proclivity for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Random things are higher priced here, like soy sauce and sesame oil. Gas is higher too, which I understand.

My sis is in Mexico for this semester. She knows very little Spanish and is doing it immersion-style. I think I'd tend to start having conversations in my head and not notice when people were trying to talk to me. Because then I'd have to brush off the daydream cobwebs and make them say one-word-at-a-time.

Mags is going back to Fargo to get her tonsils out. I got to see their infected state last night and it was very cool, in a freakish way. Kinda reminds me of when I had mono and got all inflamed. I think I was asleep for most of the first half of senior year.

If you have any questions about school, just ask. I'll be able to give you a detailed outline of how to make the perfect consomme in less than two weeks. Exciting, I know.
And looking over my Orientation schedule...I don't think the beginnings of my career at KU included half of this stuff. It was sink or swim, children!
Hopefully I won't realize things that I should've known when I was 18.

My attitude is 100% different this time around. I'm so much more focused and ready to kick serious rear. And I don't care what anyone thinks, no sirree.

One of my good friends here seriously considered attending Johnson and Wales for culinary school. Instead, she ended up at GA Southern, and she's down here doing the same study abroad/missions program as me. Weird.

It sounds like stuff is going well. How's Jess doing? Do you like CO?

one more thing... have you or Jess ever tried Pacifico? It's Mexican, and it's pretty light... but I really like it. More than the others I have tried, for sure.

I have to have people to repeat one-word-at-a-time and I'm not even in a foreign country. M
