First trimester is over! It passed reasonably quickly, except for baking and pastry! Thank heavens it is over. Surprisingly, my little group did really well as a whole on the things that were a group effort, but so did everyone else. It is the final exam and our homework that I did not do so well on. I got a 70 on the final and 75 for the homework because I had a recipe missing, some details missing, and a messed up format due to running out of time at the end. I am majorly regretting not doing better on that. I know I could have. We did well on our brownies and cheesecake, getting basically a 14 out of 15 on both. I will not know my final grade until after break. I expect to get a B, maybe. It depends how the 70 and 75 pan out against the much better grades on the actual products. Production is a much bigger percentage of our grade than the test, quizzes and homework. I got 90's on all my quizzes except one I really bombed and got a 62 =/ I just studied the wrong bits of information! I am going home until the 1st of December. Then I will be starting Principles of Beverage Service, which is basically bartending. I hear we take notes for the first few days, and then get into the bar and start mixing. Obviously, we do not use real alcohol, but water that is colored to look like the appropriate alcohol. I may have very limited (if any) internet access while I am home so don't fret if I don't answer any replies until December!
