Becoming a chef isn't easy. It seems like I just cook twenty-four hours a day. From 8 AM to 3 PM I work at a restaurant downtown to earn money to pay for cooking school. From 4 PM to 7 PM I have classes, and then I have to take the train home. I don't usually get until after 8 PM and I have to make myself dinner before I start doing my cooking homework. By the time I get doing my assignments, I am exhausted and I can't stand looking at food. Unfortunately, I have no choice, I have to practice preparing special dishes for class.

Practicing is constantly a problem; either my roommates are bothering me or the dog is trying to get the food. Yesterday, while I was trying to prepare steak tartar and chocolate mousse, the dog ran into the kitchen and tried to get the counter. I screamed, "Get !" but he wouldn't stop. My roommates aren't much better. While I was trying to get the dog the kitchen, my roommate, Fred, showed up and got the bag of chocolate I needed for my mousse. I took one look at him eating my chocolate and yelled, "Get !"

By the time I got work, it was after 10 o'clock. I just wanted to get the cooking ; I didn't even care if I did a good job. How am I supposed to learn to cook under these conditions?
