Ah, so when I couldn't get a work visa, I decided to come home (duh) but forgot to change my ticket. Rookie mistake, but I called today, and US Air changed my ticket without charging me a thing! Seriously. Not one penny. Not one mile, and the mileage needed is now 15,000 miles more. Thank you USAir!
I will miss Easter and my sister's birthday, but I feel good knowing that I have a departure date. Now I need to get going on internship, I have no idea how to rewrite my resume to include Pastry, it is very financial services oriented. I would like to work at Citronelle with the amazing Michel Richard, and when I told Chef D, his eyes lit up because he worked with him in the 80's! So, maybe, just maybe, I will get an internship with a famous French chef without the hassles of a French visa.
Chef D has a website - http://www.jf-deguignet.com/crbst_0_en.html
So, April 7th is the date of my return. I can't wait to get started. I am dreading packing up 9 months of stuff.
