Back to School! Again!

Back to school! We all see the Wal-Mart commercials and the elementary school marquees welcoming students back to school this time of year. I also, have rejoined this movement. After 5 months at Bouchon, it is time to return to the safe walls of The Culinary Institute of America-Greystone to finish up my culinary studies.Jannie and I have come a long way together. I got this backpack in the 8th grade. Not for its stylish features or it's durable zippers, but rather for its Lifetime Guarantee. Although I have had to send it back to Jansport three times for facelifts, it is still in my "Back to School" arsenal. Jannie has seen many a carseat in its day. She didn't always have the plush leather heated seat that she get's to ride to school in now-a-days. This backpack has seen a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird(thanks for the ride sis), 1985 Ford Ranger, a 1990 Chevy Silverado, a 1997 Ford F-150, a 1999 Nissan Maxima, a 2000 VW Jetta, and now a 2004 Acura MDX (thanks Mrs.). We've come a long way together.
Why do I need a backpack for culinary school you might ask? Here is the first day back at the CIA! It's gonna be a tough haul Jannie.
