This is my journey as I return to school and work in a profession I once dabbled in as a means for funding an after college 7 year long ski trip...not as a viable career choice. I hope I entertain, enlighten and learn something from any readers I may attract.

the end is near!

It is official, August is here. The end of a long summer. School starts on the 20th of this month. I can go purchase my books soon, and decide which elements of my uniform need to be replaced. I plan on picking up binders next time I am at Target, and the printer has new ink to print all my sylabi. I have a stable of white shirts to wear nder my coats, and the Danskos will most likely make it to December. I personally love the Dansko brand, having worn them for years now. I hate getting new ones because they take so long to break in. I try to purchase new ones during the winter so I can wear them alot in a short amount of time to break them in. (during the summer, I HATE shoes!) I have been working on my knife skills, and terms so it will not be as obvious that I haven't been in a kitchen lab in 8 months. I plan on practicing cutting a chicken, and my husband fishes under the guise of helping me practice cleaning fish. I guess the biggest challenge is going to be packing the knife kit. I washed my knife kits this summer, I had two one for pastry and one for everything else. I now have to wade through a ton of knives and figure out which ones are necessary.
Yes, the party is over, and I cannot ait for school.

the boy (my husband) alternates between his pair of dansko all-leather clogs and birkenstock clogs (with added inserts). if you can afford another pair of shoes (preferably different brand), it helps to alternate them. he swears by this. he also has a pair of inexpensive plastic nursing shoes which work in a pinch.

Thanks for the advice! I was a birk wearer for years, It never occured to me to switch off, duh? I had only deviated from the Danskos on super extra rainy water to your knees days to wear plasic cheapo Dickies clogs (that float) I will try the boy's method this semester!
Thanks for reading!
