Iâ€™ve been out of school for about ten years, and am really nervous to go back. Not only am I like Grandpa student, itâ€™s kind of expensive.Â Iâ€™ve done the usual thing and received some grants, a scholarship and a few loans but I really need to get my spending under control if I want to be able to actually finish school!
My major will be culinary management so Iâ€™ll spend my days here with you guys and my nights standing on anti fatigue mats, cooking and learning what it takes to run my own restaurant. Iâ€™ve only gone to orientation, but already I feel like I got a little ahead of myself when I thought I knew what it takes to actually run a successful business. Iâ€™ve only ever really been an employee and Iâ€™m beginning to realize that we [employees] tend to think we know the how and why of everythingâ€¦ and thereâ€™s so much more.
We took a tour of our classrooms and the kitchens, and aside from the drainage mat I saw along with the non slip mat and anti fatigue mats I couldnâ€™t name a darn thing. Thatâ€™s when I got my idea of how I could help my school costs. Since I have access to a few of the material needed in a kitchen, maybe I can work out something with the school.Â I need to find out how much they pay for the industrial kitchen mat they have, then beat that price and ask them to put half of the money they saved toward my tuition! Yet again Iâ€™m a genius. Make some sales for the company and help my future. Ha Haâ€¦ in a perfect world that would be awesome.
