I just found out today that I have been accepted to the New England Culinary Institute! This is the college that three months ago I thought was the only one for me. I am happier than you can imagine that I now have it for a definite option, but I am not sure if it is where I will go.
I still want to own and manage a restaurant, but I realize that there are other good schools out there. I am going to the open house at Green Mountain College in a couple of weeks. It seems like a good school where I could learn what I want. At NECI I would only learn Restaurant Management; at Green Mountain I could learn management and other things that interest me. My family also wants me to look into Cornell. I think it’s farfetched that I could get into Cornell, but I’ll look into it if for no other reason than to make them stop bothering me about it.
Talking with my family I also found out that I will be the first on either side to go to college. My older cousin is planning on going, but she has yet to apply anywhere. I hope this is going to become a common thing. I would love to see my little sister and some of my younger cousins go to college!
Leaving home is a scary idea. I know that around this time next year I will need to become a much stronger person. Being close to my family makes staying away from them for a long period of time difficult. I’ve mastered being away for up to ten days, I wonder if I can stand being away for longer. It’s months and months away though, so for now I want to think about the fun things I will be able to do!
I will have a nice, long, informational post up before the weekend is over. I feel bad that I keep writing these short posts that have almost nothing to do with Paganism. I have ideas running through my head now. Maybe I should start writing them down so I don’t forget them! xD
