My friend Jamie has a blog about her family and her scrap booking obsession (ramblingsinchocolate.blogspot.com) and she has been advocating taking self portraits. Not to prove how pretty you are (although, c?mon, look at me!) but more to remind yourself what you look like. This used to scare me. But now I agree with her, and I?m jumping headfirst into my fear. No, this is not a blog about food. But it is a blog about a girl getting ready to study food! So here it is, my first of many self portraits. This is me, getting ready for my first day of school as a Gastronomy student. I think I look calm, collected, and ready to kick some gastronomic ass.
