I Win? Again?

My recent luck has extended itself to yet another win. Only, I am a little more proud of this one because this wasn't a random drawing. Remember that recipe Easy Mexican Millet that I entered into the Farmers Market monthly recipe contest? Well it won. I know, shocker. Not only do I get the awesome title of "winner" but I get a $50 voucher for the farmers market and my food is going to be sampled there from 9am-11am. So if you are in the area, come taste my food :)

Another lucky happening in my life is that I just got an e-mail 30 minutes ago telling me I landed an internship at Tsuda's in downtown Auburn. It is basically like free culinary school. It is a bittersweet feeling as there could be some issues with having to leave for Germany. I want to be happy, but instead I am just anxious. It is a huge opportunity for me. The head Chef is amazing. She gets me in a way that no employer has since I worked at Good Earth. She told me she didn't care that I was quiet, that it was okay because everyone is different, and people just communicate differently. She continued to amaze me with the words that came out of her mouth. She not only cares about her business, but her employees as well. She has the personality that I need in an employer in order not to freak out, build confidence, and be able to grow within myself. I don't know what to do. I guess I probably shouldn't have started the whole process in the first place but I didn't know when I would be leaving yet. Well I still don't know exactly but it seems it might be soon.



  1. Go for it...what an opportunity! Maybe you would have to postpone your trip just a little longer to see if you really like it or not. Give it a chance. You NEED this confidence builder right now. When would you start? It's like being in school this semester where you felt like you should be in school and was wasting your time not being in school....just a month short. Also, pray about it...I will! xoxoxo Love ya!

  2. Just wait and see, it might work out! If not, there's nothing you can really do about it, at least you tried. Congrats
