saxy is done with culinary school, finally!

i am so very proud of mah man! he walked in uncertain with a 1.9 something or other gpa. he's walking out more confident, prepared to do something he loves, and with a 3.6 gpa and an award for academic achievement. he wanted to "take a break" a time or two, but never gave in. he's been under financial strain, had to balance work versus school, and had a lot of crap going on at home for at least the last 6 months, and he made it through.

this is just the first step. and the next step may not be as easy as we'd like because of the economy, but at least he's now ready for that step. he has a bit of time since all the holiday help has been hired, and he really needs it. he's been pushing so hard, 2 weeks "off" is the least he deserves. not that he's off completely. he'll be working for the catering company, and he'll email those who have his resume on file to let them know he's available to work any time now, but other than that, the real job hunting won't begin until january.

i am so proud of him. he pushed through the tough stuff, he's done extraordinarily well. i mean, seriously, he took his grade from a low f to a high b. that's incredible.

better, he's happy with his work, he's more confident. he has grown incredibly. and his concept for a new restaurant has been so well received that i wish we could set him up right away, but he needs time in a few kitchens. his plan is to continue with the catering company, find a second job, and "stodge" on his days off. stodging is when a chef apprentices in a kitchen for the experrience (no pay). i eon't see much of him, but he'll get the esperience and real life training he needs, and we'll have time to refine his idea for his restaurant. and to get on our feet a bit. no one would loan us the money for a car down payment right now. lol

anyway, he's done! he's done, done, done! and he's done with class! so proud of him!


word of the moment: stodging

when a chef works as an apprentice for the experience without being paid; to stuff full especially with food
