Because my mother said so...

I haven't been blogging.. as I am sure you can clearly see and people are complaining sooo...

63 school days left until I graduate.. This is unbelievable.

I just got back from Christmas break where I had a wonderful time and also made peppermint bark and fudge.. the first things besides tuna melts I have made at home in a long time.

I have a few things I need to get done in the next 63 days..
-Teach myself more Spanish as my high school Spanish teacher did a horrible job
-Apply to school.. even ones that are not my first choice because..such is life.
-Decide on a school.
-Get financial aid for said schooling.
-And last but NOT in any way, shape, or form least... Find a Job for when I get home!

So this blog is pretty much my to do list and I will let you know how I'm doing...

I believe.

I have not blogged in almost two months.. and I am not sure I have anything to say yet but...
As an Update.. I am now in Chocolate and Confections class here at the CIA with Chef Greweling and I am pretty much loving every minute of it.
I am not a professional in the subject matter but I am trying and his sarcasm and jokes defiantly help.
13 days until I go home for Christmas break.
Under 80 schools days until I graduate.

Stealing me.

With every good comes a bad.
I carry a credit card and debit card, rarely will I have cash on me. But maybe we should all rethink the convenience of debit and credit cards.
A friend ate at a restaurant the other day and later found out her debt card information had been stolen and used to rack up hundreds of dollars of debt in a state across the country.
The next day another friend posted on Facebook that their debit information had been stolen and used as well.
Ever think "that could never happen to me"
It can. Be Aware.
Everytime you hand your debit card to a server or cashier it takes seconds for them to have all the information they need to use your card.
They can double swipe your card in a machine that will steal your information or they could easily write down your card number and security code and use it on thousands of websites and in thousands of stores within hours.
The more aware you are of the websites you use, the places you shop, and eat the better off you will be. Some things you can do to help:
  • Carry cash instead of handing your debit card over.
  • Use secure paying methods like Pay Pal to pay online.
  • Buy only from reputable stores and websites.
  • Paying slightly more may be worth it to insure you are making safe transactions. 
Word of mouth is important, Spread the word to prevent Identity and Credit Theft.

Some place to Lay my head.

Dorms? The only way I can describe living on campus in a dorm is.. Not Fun.
Living with people you don't know and sleeping on the worlds hardest mattress? No Way.

For that reason.. Everyone is looking for that perfect apartment close to campus but not on campus.
I found an amazing steal on

In Poughkeepsie, it is only about 10 minutes from school(Culinary Intitute of America) and surrounded by a mecca of food.. which is vital not only to any college student but even more important to a baking and pastry major.

The apartment is three bedrooms! Enough room for me and my two closest friends Cameron and Krissy.
Even at the highest rent, broken into three the apartment is super affordable(less than dorm payments) for the normal broke college student(I mean eating Peanut butter and Jelly, Tuna, and Ramen every night).
The most perfect aspect(remember I'm a college student) is that the apartment is right in between Marist, The Culinary, and Vassar.. A meeting ground for all students to get together and PARTTYYYY!

Grand Pointe Park apartments are perfectly priced, spacious, don't have to walk down three flights to use the kitchen, and perfect in the always important Location, Location, Location.

This is where I live =/

This Is where I could Be living! =D

Being faithful is "Adhering firmly and devotedly, as to a person, cause, or idea; loyal."
It is hard to see good examples of faith in the world sometimes.
Today is one of those days.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys, "HOLY CRAP WHAT DO I DO?!"

Yesterday was an amazing day and a perfect example of livin' it up.
My friend Kristna DePalma got 3 free tickets to see Hot Chelle Rae and The Script(both amazing bands) in concert.
So...We road tripped to Connecticut.

The thing is... when ever Krissy and I drive somewhere we can't just drive there... its always turns into an adventure.
This was no exception...

On our way to the FoxWood MGM Theater the GPS told us we had arrived at our destination and we were still in the middle of the high way..
We however out smarted the GPS and made it to the concert.
Both bands were awesome live and it was a great concert.
On our way home.. we go stuck on some sketchy detours... and then...
A car was following very closely behind me even tho I was going a decent speed in the fast lane..
Turns out it was a Cop who proceeded to SPOT LIGHT MY CAR!
Almost blinding me... I don't know about you but at my driving school they never thought me what to do when a rude cop shines his spotlight on your car in the middle of the interstate....
We pulled over non the less and he flew past us and disappeared within seconds..

But.. we made it home... Connecticut and back, Hot Chelle Rae, The Script, brisk iced tea, and some Adele.

It's weekends like this I will always remember... Thank you Kristna DePalma and Amanda Welsh
