Dave Mustaine was born in September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California to a housewife and a drunk I mean a banker. The father was a bit of a bastard though, simply because he treated Mustaine like shit andd once took a pair of pliers and DRAGGED HIM ACROSS THE FUCKING DRIVEWAY! They ran away from the jerk, but he constantly followed. Then Dave’s mom married a cop. Problem solved. for now.

6:00am: Up and early and off to a breakfast event for one of our clients at the Meatpacking pop up shop. It’s a bit rainy and I feel bad for my client as the pop up shop is somewhat in the open air. It’s a light shower and clears quickly. Phew. We serve mini potato pancakes with baked apples and goat cheese, jalapeno deviled eggs and salami omelet with Tuscan herbs and mascarpone.

Most of them only came for one or two classes. We should all be ashamed of these conditions. The ones I observed today? Absolutely Awesome! I marvel at these people, their enthusiasm, their motivation, and dedication. They must truly love what they do, because they don’t get paid squat, and they face constant criticism from every angle: students, parents, administrators, and the mob of clueless morons that fail to see value in a strong and well funded education system.
