Just Kill ME!

Remember how I was on hiatus etc during the exam period? The GSCE's to be exact. Well, I just got my results back yesterday and it turns out that I'm a CLASS A moron. I didn't do that well! I managed to get A's and B's in all my subjects but one particular subject had a lower B grade then the rest, pulling my score down. Most people would keep it a secret, but I see no point in doing so. I knew from the start that I wouldn't achieve fantastic results. I mean, I hardly put any effort into it anyway.

The results, however, aren't what bothers me the most. What bothers me is that after digesting such information, my father is being a real jerk. He said he isn't going to send me to Le Cordon Bleu. He says I didn't earn it.

I am distressed.

PS: To the 3 sordid peasants who said I totally FLUNKED it and deserved it, let me just tell you that you, my friends, are repulsive hawks. All you know how to do is sit on your big behinds behind a computer screen, without anything better to do in life.

I hope one of you remembers how you pathetically begged me to teach you how to make chocolate truffles, asked me what a "coulis" was, came over to MY house for a MACARON lesson and needed me to teach you the most idiot-proof things on Adobe Photoshop. Please do remember Alicia Keys' song "Karma". What goes around comes around, what goes up must come down :o)

    i stumbled upon your blog and am sorry to hear that your dream has been postponed. Cheer up, from your blog it sounds like cooking is your passion in life so I'm sure you'll find your way to LCB.

    Don't see yourself as a failure. Sometime things happen for a reason. Perhaps at this moment, the time for you to embark on LCB is not up yet. I am sure you will live up to your dream some day. So hang on to that dream! Chin up.

    Hey girl, academic results are just one way to measure one's abilities. The exam results might not turn out well, but which chefs would need that? Right?

    Just calm down and try to relax a bit. Show your understanding and I am sure your dad will understand.

    Good luck girl! :)

    Hello amrita!

    Its been some time since we've chatted.
    Hey, don't get all upset by your results.
    I'm sure you did better than me. :)

    And don't care abt what your dad says;

    I think you're fabulous, just look at the creations you have!
    And I'm so missing your Macarons.

    I'll be waiting for the day where you'll appear on the cover of some famous gastronomical magazine! :D

    Missing you always!

    Sweetheart, let me tell you something. I never went to culinary school and I've never worked in a restaurant before. The circumstances just didn't work out for culinary school and I knew restaurant kitchen life wasn't for me. But, I worked hard to teach myself about cooking, business, emulating anyone I admired and most important thing of all, I became great at relating and bonding with people. As you know, I've built a pretty successful career for myself in less than 3 years - almost 90% of that happened in 2007 after starting the blog and being so inspired by wonderful food bloggers world-wide like you.

    I know that LCB is one of your dreams, but is it really going to LCB that you really want? Or is it a career? Is it the learning from masters? Bonding with other students? What is it exactly that going to LCB will give you? Because there are a million different ways to get to where you want to go and to also learn without having to attend LCB. (plus they have to wear those silly costumes!)

    Start thinking of ways to take a shortcut to get to where you really want to go! Because girl, you are so talented already. Who can you team up with? Who can you intern with?

    Email me anytime, my friend.

    xo, jaden
