last night amy, brian, casey, and i drove to tuscaloosa so that i could check out some books from the UA library. i was super frustrated last night because in class my teacher told me i couldnt use the one book i was most excited about. i found some other books that look pretty good though. after the library we ate at mugshots. it was so delicious. i got a cajun grilled chicken salad…best salad ever. everyone else got burgers and fries. i had a bite of casey’s burger and some left over fries. yummers!
today i worked from 9-1. it was good…i trained on the cold bar today. i learned how to make shaken iced teas, iced coffee, and frappuccinos. there’s a lot of numbers to remember: this many pumps of syrup/sauce, this many shots of espresso, this many scoops of this…it’s hard to remember because there are a lot of exceptions. people are saying i am picking up on things really fast…so i’ll just believe them. today i got sample four new drinks: italian roast coffee made in a french press (it’s an extra bold coffee…i wasn’t really a fan…eating it with dark chocolate however, made it 100% better), a green tea frappuccino, a vanilla bean frappuccino, and passion iced tea. all four were excellent. the green tea is awesome in latte and frappuccino form. the passion tea is awesome too.
after i got off i stayed at starbucks to look through the books i got last night. i ended up staying there until 7pm. jeez louise. i got to look through all but one of the books i got. i think i could have probably been more prodcutive but i know i got more done there than i would have at home. so thats good i guess.
i am going to try to get my intro done tonight so that i can take it to my teacher tomorrow for her to look at. hopefully she’ll have good things to say. if not, i will cry in front of her for the 3rd time this semester. awesome.
it’s goose season! i saw 4 adult geese and 2 little babies yesterday near target…there’s always geese near target. today i saw 3 adult geese at the 280/459 intersection. i love seeing them around town! i do get nervous about them being so close to the highways. last year i only saw one dead one though. i think they are pretty good at staying out of the road.
ok well…that is all for now.
