Candle Lab

After the princess parties, I got changed back into my normal clothes. I said goodbye to Tracy and thanked her.  I had to run home and get ready for an event for Carnegie Mellon University. They were doing a senior year experience event at the Candle Lab in Lawrenceville. I kept my false eye lashes on. My supervisor from CMU greeted me when I arrived to the candle lab, and asked how my parties went. I told them they went so well. it is so fun. I still have my lashes on. He said, that is good! He asked us if Drew and I wanted to make a candle. I picked out a jar and we sniffed all the scents.

We decided on banana brûlée, and bourbon. It wasn’t so bad at all. It was a little sweet with a little bit of liquor. We poured the wax in and then put the wick in and stirred the wax for a minute, or so. Then you have to let the candle sit for an hour.

Around 5:30pm, the students from CMU were being bused in. We were offering them food, and wine. My boss carded them at the door. Andrew and I wrist banned the 21 year olds, and they were allowed two glasses of wine. There were two groups of students coming. We had to make the food and wine stretch. It was fun to be a part of, but I was tired.

Around 8pm, we were able to leave for the night. I am excited to burn our candle.
