Big developments on the Bus, folks.

I've been keeping something from you, dear readers. I was keeping a secret until I knew for sure, so as to not jinx myself and my good fortune.

I found out yesterday I was accepted into culinary school. Whoopie! Seriosuly, I am thrilled. It's a baking and pastry program here and I start in May. I'd like to invite you to visit my other blog, Meg In The Kitchen, for a long and rambling post with all the juicy details.

As you all know by now, I was laid off last Friday. My last day will be May 1. This also mean that will be my last day of bus riding with all the crazies you know and love. I will still keep this blog active after that and occasionally post since I will still ride public transportation. During the summer I will transition over to the other blog to report on my culinary adventures and invite you all to come along.

I just wanted to give you all a heads up, just incase anyone suffers from separation anxiety. You'll be okay. We'll get through it together.

OMG! I've been missing out, I haven't been on here much. I am so sorry about your job! :( But, I guess getting into culinary school makes up for it a little :-/ That's really cool, I can't cook to save my life, so going to school for cooking always seemed like a fantasy.

This is so great, Meg! I never thought about culinary school, but I do like to cook and I love to watch cooking shows.

Good luck!

In some ways, I'm bummed about my job. I won't lie. The paycheck is nice. But it's not my passion. I was pretty stressed out until I heard about school. Now that I have a plan, I feel good.

I am really excited about the baking and pastry program. I can't wait to learn to make petit fours, croissants, etc. This is going to be fun!

Thanks ladies!

Firstly isn't this all about me? So I say "Nooooooooooooo" No more bus stories?

Secondly this is your blog and I am your friend and I say "Yay Meg" How wonderful for you to follow your passion. I will be reading your new blog with an eager mind, hoping to learn from your learning.

As you know I too love to cook. This year just keeps getting better.

There will still be bus riding, Foxy! Just not as often.

But just think about all the wacky stuff that can go wrong in a baking or pastry class! I once had an intern from my brother's school work for me. She said someone got stabbed (accidentally) on the first day of basic skills class.

WOW! That's wonderful news! You'll now be able to get a job doing something you love after this course.

Is the course nearby? Will you be walking there?

*And thanks goodness we will still be able to get our Meg dose via your other blog! ;-)

Unfortunately, due to the length of the classes, I'll have to drive. I'm thinking about getting a scooter. There is a shuttle from downtown to campus, which is about 15 miles away, but it stops at 5:30 PM.

Besides, I have to keep blog going. I'd miss y'all too much!

FoxyMoron said...

Well scooter stories will be interesting too.
