Today I went on a field trip with my culinary arts class!! Here is the time line of how things went.
7:30 am Arrive at the culinary arts building
8-9:30 Make and eat home fries and omelets for breakfast. In doing so we learned how to flip the eggs in the pan with a flick of the wrist.

11-11:35 A fantastic chapel by Dr. Bob Jones III 
11:35-12:10 Head  back to culinary arts building to load in to vans and get ready to go!!
1:30-2:10 Arrive and tour  Underground Baking CO.. Wow what a great place learned a lot and got some good ideas for when I open my bakery.
2:20-2:40 Arrive at  McFarlan bakery to look and sample some goodies. I got an old fashion Boston cream pie doughnut, it was so good!
3-4 Visit  Kilwins. Watch them make fudge, taste said fudge. I also learned about different types and flavors of chocolate.

 4:10-4:30 Visit Van's Chocolates and see all the different kinds of molded chocolate you can do, from open bottom to sells to be filled.  
4:50-5:35 Eat dinner at the Flat rock village bakery. For dinner I had Goat cheese pizza, it was fantastic.
When I got back to my room  I found that while I was resting my eyes on the way back to school someone took my camera and took these:

 all in all it was a great day with my culinary buddies!

If you had told me a year ago I would be a sophomore at BJU on my next birthday, I would have told you "You're crazy!" If you had told me a year ago that I would have roommates that  put balloons in your bed on your birthday I would have said "No way!" If you had told me a year ago that I would have the most caring friends here at school I would have said "You are pulling my leg." But here I am a year later and I am a sophomore at BJU with roommates that not only put balloons in my bed while I am sleeping but also cover the door with  "Happy Birthday" signs. All you have to do is look at my facebook wall and see that I have friends that care a lot.
    This past year was not easy nor would I want it to be, I have no doubts that next year will be just as hard if not harder. I also know that it was God who got me through the last year and that He will get me through the next 50 years.
           So as I start off  on an other year around the sun I will trust God, plan on having a good time, and leave you with these verses
Jeremiah 29:11-12  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
