I'm going back to school. I have interviews all week next week with culinary schools. I've been out of school for a while, and out of the habits of an excellent student. The last time I was inschool, I was mainntaining a B+, I think. My GPA was 3.35. Maybe that's an A-. It was well below my goal of 3.85, (Thank you B- in completely useless class it later turned out I didn't need after all!) but I still had a long way to go, and can bring that up. Anyway, I'm going back to school, and I'm terrified. I don't think I'm going to choose a school with a degree program. I think for my plans I don't need a degree in pastry sciences, just the skill set. Give me all the pastry science, and noe of the liberal arts, please. After that, i'd like a degree in Business or economics, and preferably economics since I plan to get an MBA and don't feel I need two business degrees. Culinary school, however, is the cornerstone of my 5 year plan. The cornerstone. Once I have that knowledge base, there will be no room for failure. I'm not afraid of failing though. I'm afraid I'll excell (as usual) and get everything I want (as usual). Why is impending success so frightening? And why do I let that fear lead to procrastination and derailment? Why is my midddle name self-sabbotage? Do any of you have the same problem?
