I am 548 days, or 1 year, 5 months, and 30 days til my official finish date of my apprenticeship.
To say it’s long is an understatement, I am again beginning to feel like this is never ending.. I’m not going to lie, it’s not easy, it’s not all cupcakes and chips with aioli. It’s the hardest thing I have ever done, and it’s only going to get harder. I don’t like 10days on for a weekend off to spend with my son. I don’t like having no money. I don’t like feeling that even though I am engaged to my beloved Bartman, I feel married to my job. I don’t like not seeing my son for four days. I don’t like constantly being wrong. I don’t like being everyones bitch. I don’t like people assuming that just because I am an apprentice I must be stupid. #rantover
I’ll just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just … keep … swimming. #halfwayproblmens
A lot of things have happened in this time, a lot of change – good and bad. I’ve watched a lot of really talented chefs, sous chefs and a head chef pass in this time, people who have been really influential in the beginning of my chosen career. Change is good ? Right ?
I am 6months from becoming a 3rd year.. I wonder what change will occur during this time. For better and for worse ?
