Ode to Nutella

Let us have a moment of silence for Pietro Ferrero.

In the 1940s this genius created nutella.  Nutella is what is keeping me somewhat sane right now.  If you have never had nutella, you have not lived.  It is simply amazing.  Amazing.
I had one of my hardest classes today.  Well, the class where the most is expected of me.  I developed a roll of film and printed in the dark room.  Ohh the dark room.  I now remember why B&W was not my favorite class.  So first of all, at LMC apparently we are on more of a budget than I thought.  None of the enlargers and boards, actually any of the equipment was like what we had at lmc.  This stuff was actually made in the last 20 years.  But yeah I was lost.
Ok let me explain something else.  You know how you kindof eavesdrop on other students to kind of figure out what is going on and what to do?  Yeah not in this class.  There are only 3 Americans and the rest are from Mexico.  I only understand Spanish when spoken slllllooooowwwwwwlllllyyyy.  Yeah they don’t so I was completely lost.  Luckily, one of the other girl’s film didn’t develop so she helped me.  Thank goodness cause I was still brainfried from the previous day where I was in class from 9am to 8:30pm with a 30 minute break between classes.  Thus the reason why I’m still a little crazy as you can probably tell…
The girl that helped me told me about a place where you could buy Nutella and pretzels for decently cheap.  She’s a fan too.  I was so frazzled, stressed, CrAzY that I went during a break and bought another jar and some pretzels.  Oh my goodness!! As soon as I had that first bite…mmmmm…everything melted away and you think I’m joking but no.  Nutella is the most amazing thing ever and I mean EVER!!  But when I stopped, my problems didn’t and I managed to last through the rest of the class.
Nutella has definately been my comfort food though.  As soon as I got home, I had some more and am actually eating it right now.  If you ever saw the movie Mean Girls then you probably remember then line about the clicks in the caf “the girls who eat their feelings”  Well when nutella’s around and you are having a bad day…you can’t help but eat your feelings in the form of nutella.  Oh and nutella can be put on anything…bread, fruit, crackers, bread, a spoon.  Nutella goes with EVERYTHING!!!  Even bad days!
But this week the real classes started (not that first day where everything is la dee da).  So yeah I’ve basically accepted the fact that I am going to be stressed until mmm December 20th.
But…I have nutella!
Oh if anyone reads this and has never tried nutella but decides to, be forewarned…once you try it, you will be addicted for life and it will change you. Forever.

Dove la Nutella?
