Spices were mixed. Cookies were made. Onions were chopped.
16 cups of onions, actually.
But I really spent most of the day thinking about tomorrow. Tomorrow, I get up and go downtown. Tomorrow my internship with Chefs Collaborative starts. And I am very, very nervous.
I am scared I won’t live up to their expectations, or mine for that matter. I’m scared that they will all hate me. But mostly, I’m scared that I will hate it. I’m absolutely petrified that I will be no good at it and count the seconds until the days end, and yet another door to the food world will close on me.
I realize that it’s irrational to feel these things, but reason and emotion are 2 very, very separate things and they do not get along.
I’m very sorry for 2 lame posts in a row, but I’ve been working very hard on my study abroad page! I’ve been trying to think of ways to incorporate my travel bug on here more, and a page explaining my near-obsession with it sounded like a good place to start!
In the meantime, I will leave you with some zen-tastic photos from a hike I took this summer in the North Carolina mountains.
Smile – Friday is here!
