Welcome to the Real World
Posted June 28, 2009on:
Once we hit the beginning of Mod 3, we were told we needed to start trailing and deciding where we’d like to do our externships. I wanted to get a head start so I contacted people right away and found a lovely restaurant right by the school. I’ve secured my externship early working in a high end Italian restaurant. I work during lunch service and in their pastry department. So, I’m the one that will send out your desserts to you. The people I work with are all really good cooks–very knowledgable. The chef I work for is a great teacher and very patient. However, with the end of the school year and family issues creeping up, I’m beginning to re-think if this career change is actually the best thing for me. Maybe I was better suited to the classroom than the kitchen–I don’t know. But I do know that right know, I’m learning a lot, enjoying my work and keeping my mind of other, more depressing happenings in my life. So that’s my real world right now.
