Farewell, CBS 06-20

Today, the other class officially finished school. It was actually really sad; it hadn’t really hit me that we were never going to see these people again. Everyone sat around talking in their nice regular clothes, not our uniforms or professional attire, which was a nice change.

At 10:00, they had The Pinning, where Mrs. C-R and another instructor have a little ceremony, give a little speech, and give each student a pin.

Everyone decided to go to the Olive Garden to celebrate so we met there. While we were waiting for everyone to get there I made a decision: although I wasn’t the only one at fault, I appologized to Crystal for the argument we had back in December. We parted on good terms and I’m glad for that.

When everyone got there (and they finally opened) we were 3rd to get our 16 seats. Of course Kimberly & Romeo didn’t go and Joe didn’t go either. We had a great time–I sat next to Mayra and Lucy and across from Pepe, Brenda, and Mrs. C-R. We discussed the delicious food (I had the Tour of Italy, a soda, and of course 3 breadsticks and salad) and laughed at Pepe’s usually ridiculous (and sometime’s inappropriate) jokes. He’s funny though. I’m going to actually miss him. And Fernando and Miguel. And Brenda and Rolando. And hell, everyone else, too!

I was so stuffed from eating so much bread I left most of my food so I packed it up. We said our good-byes and goodlucks and all went our separate ways.

Mario needed a multi-meter for work so I picked one up from Radio Shack for him (and got the wrong one) and asked if he wanted my left overs. He happily took them and I’m glad–hopefully it’ll convince him that Olive Garden is wonderful and serves other food other than pasta and seafood.

Ricci didn’t talk to us at all yesterday or today, but so be it. It really got to me that last Thursday’s situation became this huge production, so in a way I’m glad to be withdrawn from all that drama. All the attention whores finished school today (well, except two of them) but we’re still better off.

Oh! We got our interview evaluations back from our final yesterday and I got a hundred! That totally made my day. Mr. Ibanez’s exact written words were, ‘Very confident. Would hire NOW!’ Now, if only I can do that well during a REAL interview!

I’m currently waiting for John in my car (updating from PDA) while he finishes with his orientation. He starts class tomorrow with me. It’s gonna be a distracting month!
