Intro Yep, you read that right. I’ve been going about this the wrong way. And by this, I mean my website and posts.
I’m a serious procrastinator and I’ve got it down to a science. Well, maybe I’m not a procrastinator, but I certainly deflect, avoid, and make up excuses why I can’t post or write. My one main job is actually my career. You see, I work at a restaurant. I do a lot of other side work because you know, I can’t sit still and I sometimes suffer from FOMO. So I have my hands in everything from doing a little accounting, magazine design and layout, and website management. I don’t know why I do this to myself I just do.
Herein lies the problem. I can’t stop, I know I have a problem, I know I have to focus on the restaurant. I just find a way to cram it all in so I fulfill some part of me that misses the corporate world. Weird right?
I don’t want to sound as though I am neglecting my work at the restaurant. I’m not. What I am neglecting is my website. I can never find the time to finish my posts. I can never figure out what to write about. Until now. I had an epiphany today.
Here’s what’s what. Come May 2019, I’ll be there for 1 entire year. In that time, I have learned even more about the restaurant industry by working closely with my chef and giving me a lot of insight. I was recently promoted to Sous Chef. I am doing the ordering, the daily/weekly specials, inventory, you know, all the sous-chefy things a Sous Chef does. As of right now, I am entering my second month in my new position. I’m enjoying it but there are times where I feel overwhelmed and get stressed out. Sometimes even having nightmares about shit I may have screwed up.
This is the part where I feel I have been going about my website (blog if you will) the wrong way. I need to be documenting all of my food and travel related items. ALL OF IT. The good, the bad, and definitely the ugly.
So it’s here that I begin my journey anew. I’m going to be posting about all the stuff that is happening to me in the culinary field. From everything that is all wrong, to everything that is all right. You know, like I was supposed to be doing during my culinary education but didn’t. In addition, I’m working on some new recipes that I tried out and I’m trying to get my dinner series up and running. It’s called Monday’s Bite…also, because I can’t do enough, I’m working on my podcast launch. So stay tuned!
