Spring is Finally Here
These past few weeks have been some of the most difficult of my college career. Between being sick, student teaching, dancing, interviews, and work I was not able to blog about the breads that I have been baking. I am pleased to announce that I have recently baked my 60th loaf of bread out of Beth's recipe book and I am now ready to attack this goal head-on so that I can complete all 300 recipes by the end of the year.
I went in to see the doctor on a couple of occasions to find out why I was so tired and run down. I thought that quite possibly I could have had a case of mono because the symptoms were so identical. The blood work came back and everything was negative. So here I am, a super stressed college guy on the verge of graduation trying to come to grips with the fact that after this May I have to be a "real" adult, with a "real" job, and never again be able to blame my crazy activities on my status as a college bachelor.
I am nearly finished with my student teaching. I currently am working on submitting a resume for a Special Educator position that had opened up in my district.
I started work in Zion National Park on Saturday as an Interpretive Park Ranger. Just putting on my uniform, badge, and ranger hat filled my soul with happiness. I love the atmosphere and history that surrounds the National Park Service. I am thrilled that I have found such a wonderful job to keep this this teacher eating during the summer months.
My ballroom dance concert is in ten days, graduation is in one month, and six weeks from now I will be in Alaska. If I can hang on until then, life will be wonderful. Until then I will be baking away in my kitchen. This week I will be focusing on the spring and Easter breads that are found in my recipe book.
Wishing you all the best,
