I could talk for ages about these guys. Like how when we invited them one night to make cupcakes just for the heck of it, there was this one guy who wasn't familiar with the kitchen, but decided to give it a go. By the end of the night, he was taking liberties with the decorating and going the extra mile to make them look amazing, then proceeding to parade around in a long pink flowered apron with two plates of cupcakes, passing them out to people, completely owning it.
Teaching these youth and watching it click with them, watching them get into it and own a skill made my heart beat faster. They started something that they were unfamiliar with, stuck with it, and had an end result they could be proud of. I love teaching people, watching the wheels turn in their head and then click. So exciting!
It has been an amazing time; however, it has been tiring, emotionally and mentally. I am ready for this next week. Mainly cause my parents are visiting! I'll take pictures, nay worries, and share with you all the wonderful food we'll be eating in Switzerland, Italy, Austria; you know, the usual . . . :)
That's me for now. I am going to go hang out with a friend who is leaving for the states in a couple days. Good-byes suck, ya know? However, leaving means the end of a chapter and the start of something new. A new adventure, an epic beginning. And though it's rough to move forward, you know that it's the start of a new chapter, so wouldn't you rather move forward than stay?
