    Smile Brand New Here

    I found your board while searching for a way to unmold homemade butter -- and decided to join, to be a part of a message board system again.

    I am an "older" Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management student, working on my bachelor's degree -- it's a long, tedious process (and definitely not easier once you have lived almost half your life outside of an educational institution).

    I am a certified nursing assistant working in the Hospice field, housewife and mother to 3 gorgeous daughters: 26, 25 and 22.

    Depending on my class schedule and work schedule, that determines my participation level here...at least until semester end.

    I am what is now considered an "extreme couponer" -- for years, it never had a name...but I save, on average, 85% every time I go shopping.

    Anyway -- that's all I have for right now.

    Welcome to the boards Culartstudent. Good luck in your studies. I consider myself to be older. I cant imagine going back to school now.

    If I can do it... you can too.

    I have learned that many of my peers -- especially in English -- are scared of me because I have racked up 2 years of journalism (and writing for the campus newspaper) under my belt, in addition, I have 17 years "time served" in the United States Navy.

    *sigh* such is life though -- there are a LOT of us "older" folks back in college to start anew -- we absolutely must, so we can reinvent ourselves... stenographers and secretaries who take short hand are obsolete.

    I have been thinking about going back to school. culinary arts would be my major. I wont be able to go on my own, I would have to have student loans. I cant imagine having students loans in my mid 40's.

    that's what I have -- student loans... and although I have to repay them, I am borrowing a little extra each year so that I can take a much needed vacation each summer....

    last year I went to NYC for 12 nights....this year I am going to Put In Bay for 7 nights...next year I am going to Poland and Germany (to see family) for 5 weeks and the senior year, I think I am going to Italy for 2 weeks

    I really do wish you luck. I think I would be right behind doing it too if my kids weren't so young.

    I have considered going to LeCordon Bleu as an "older student". I just don't know if I can cut it in the culinary field after watching all those cooking shows! I love to cook, bake and learn. Ahhhh...would love to go to culinary school though.....
