I am a full time student, as well as a waiter in the evenings. I am going for a degree in Chemistry, and cooking is one of the things that I love to do that I get to do the most, partly because it is a necessity. I have taken a number of culinary classes for fun, including three wine classes, a sauces class, and a baking class. When I can, I get out into mother nature, although finding the time to do so is another story. I rent an apartment, so gardening isn't really something I get to do as much as I would like, although I do have a number fresh herbs growing, and a house full of plants because I love to grow.
