Yesterday I drove up to San Francisco and spent the night with my friend Kristen and her husband in the city. We went to Cafe Gratitude for a raw vegan feast and mini shopping spree (I got a very exotic bottle of Palestinian olive oil...among other things).
This morning I drove up the coast to Ft. Bragg to start my culinary adventure. I'm settled into my very quaint room at the Living Light Inn and getting acquainted with my new roomie, a German/Japanese interpreter who is very cool (I have Only Child Syndrome so I was having anxiety attacks thinking about who I was going to be living with). I registered for my classes and now just looking over the curriculum for the next seven days. Looking around, I still can't believe I'm here. I've been dreaming about coming here for the past year and a half. I'm actually a little nervous that the fickle Gemini that I am will head into another career path like I do every couple of years. Right now, though, it feels really right to be here. My heart is on board with my brain for a change so I'm just going to try and be present in the moment and not worry about what I'll do with my certification when I'm done. At the very least, Matt is going to eat well the rest of his life.
