Awesome news, Cat! Take a few deep breaths, you can't be all things to all your peeps. I agree, DA needs you. I started out as a journalism major, and decided to go a different route.

In the meantime, here's something that can relieve a little of that burden: I use cookbook software called Living Cookbook to keep my recipes. It has some great features that can make the cooking needs much more manageable. It can:

- import recipes from the Internet or a file
- scale recipes to any number of servings and save this to a new file
- create cookbooks with chapters for different types of foods
- create grocery lists
- convert to and from metric units
- print recipes in a consistent format
- and much more!

Check it out: Recipe Software | Living Cookbook 2013
Oh I will! I've been using a calculator. Thank you so very much! Oh this will help!

With love,
~Cat

You did? What happened?

Oh there is no question of DA and my education. I'd rather die than to leave DA or fail in college and disgrace my family.

The problem is when DA is passed and I have graduated, there is still Catina II and my beautiful, treacherous Black Sea.

What did you do? Was your family upset of this?

With love,
~Cat

Oh wait -- GG said National Geographic! I missed this first.

This is odd. Carl said I could be the Black Sea "Deadliest Catch" when I found the hull and keel. I adore that program!!

With love,

Oh no, it's quite common for college students here to change their majors. My family just accepted it. They helped me pay for my undergraduate studies, and when I went to graduate school, I paid for it myself.

You love the sea, Cat, you'll figure out how to include it into your life's work!

That's probably because I'm your mother's age and he's your age When I think of journalism, I don't think first of TV/video but writing.

But since you have time to figure things out, try not to stress about it too much now. One thing at a time

Oh. But those at National Geographic write and take photos, yes? I can do this.

Do Americans become angry if an immigrant becomes an American then goes back home for to take charge of a fishing vessel which is a part of the family?

With love,

Some do both, some writers take photographers with them.

Cat, people come to America for the freedom to do what makes them happy. Follow your dreams and don't worry about what others think, unless those others matter to you. If someone becomes angry because of your personal choices, that's their problem. Like the bullies at your school. Not worth your consideration.

Oh I see. I must think of this. Thank you so very much!

Mamma hasn't called yet. I'm worried.

With love,
