Amen to this!

Break my heart and make it clean,
Open up my eyes to the things unseen.
Show me how to love like you have loved me.

Break my heart from what breaks yours,
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause.
As I walk from nothing to eternity.

Florence, Here I Come!

Ciao! Incase you were curious as to exactly what I will be doing in Florence, here are the details....
I will be living in Florence, Italy for a month, studying at the Apicius Culinary Institute. I'll be living in an apartment there, taking classes, going on wine tours, and will pretty much be living in a kitchen. While there, I will be studying the following:
  • Italian cooking
  • Italian wine
  • Italian language, art, and history
Sounds like it's exactly up my alley, doesn't it? I can't wait!!!!!!
Florence, here I come!

* the above picture will be my home/classroom for the month of June!

The Curse of State Schools

Every school quarter, when it's time to register for classes, I become a complete and total spaz. The blasted piece of paper that lists all my required courses haunts my dreams and causes me to break out in a panicked sweat. 
Registering for the Spring quarter was an especially fun experience for me- let's just say there were two, not one, but TWO pre-requisite courses I realized I have yet to take to secure my chances of graduating before I turn 30. But, the perfect solution was offered, which would cure all my problems- I could take a proficiency exam which would allow me to test out of these cursed classes. How hard can Microsoft Excel be, right?
Well, after studying all night and morning, arriving to school while it was still dark, sitting on the pavement in 35 degree weather while waiting for the test proctor to arrive, and finally feverishly pouring over the 3 hour long exam.....and FAILING by 2%, I decided that God must have a better plan for my schooling than I do. 
I know, He must be up there chuckling about what a dork of a girl he created in me. I am SO excited for the next few quarters at Cal Poly (or 10+ quarters, at this rate), because I know God must have a very intentional plan for me! :)

Grocery Stores= Love

I am not ashamed to admit that one of my favorite activities in the entire universe is grocery store shopping!!! It gives me a thrill to peruse the aisles, check out the hottest sales, and mosey along without a care in the world, or a thing on my mind but FOOD! I don't even have to purchase any items to experience the great pleasure that supermarkets bring to my soul. Maybe I should advertise my food shopping-skills in the Penny Saver?
