This week has been a crazy one so far. So I am just now catching up. It's been a pretty normal week though, I've mostly been going to school.
I've already said this, but I cannot even express how incredibly proud I am of my friends. The ones here at school in Austin, and the ones back at home. My school friends and I have worked so hard. We're reaching the end of the school year, and I couldn't be more thankful and happy. There is so much talent in my class. My friends back in Houston are some amazing people also. Each and every one of them have a special calling on their lives. There are expected teachers, fashion designers, chefs, ministers, football coaches, armed forces, the list could go on and on. I cannot wait to see the incredible things they do in their special future. Some of them have stepped up in the church with a certain ministry and I know what God is doing is meant to be. I get emotional seeing all of the great things before my eyes. Tonight, I talked to 3 of my friends on the phone. All 3 phone calls made my night. Even though there were painful things to say, and I could hear hurt, I felt so at ease when I hung up with them. (There were also some great laughs by the way.) Just knowing that God has the perfect plan is a beautiful sight to see. My friends are serious world changers.
Now, I love being the person people come to when they are having problems. I mean, I do not like that they have a problem to begin with, but I want to be a comforting shoulder to anyone and everyone. I've been told by certain people that I always have the right things to say. I never know what to tell myself when I am facing my own problems though. That really bothers me. I know everyone faces the problem of not being able to sleep at night because it feels like your mind is running in circles. Sometimes I just want to punch my mind in the face. That sentence just does not seem like it could make sense, but I hope you see what I am trying to say. I just get so worked up to where I tell myself to just simply, breathe. It's amazing how much a deep breath could really do. Try it sometime. When things are wrong, and you have no idea how they can be right again, just breathe. Take a deep breath, collect yourself, then pray. I cannot begin to tell you how much that has helped me this week.
- ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT. Now for the food! :)
This week we have been working on Molecular Gastronomy and Advanced plating. Molecular Gastronomy is the mixture of food and science. It's pretty fascinating, but I know that is not what I want to do in my Career. Haha.
I have some great pictures to show you all! :)
(All of these dishes were made by people from class and I.)
