I can’t remember mentioning this on Friday or not, but no better time than right now.
There isn’t much going on at work anyways.
Have I mentioned that I’ve been with my current employer for about 7 years now? Here lately I’ve the feeling, the stress and frustration that my time here is coming to an end. I know the economy is rough and times are hard. Which doesn’t explain the Now Hiring signs I see littering the city here. That aside, I feel the urge to do something else.
I’ve clicked some buttons online and have sent my information into a couple of cooking schools in the Atlanta, GA area. I’m excited and terrified at the same time.
I did nothing educational after HS 12 years ago… Shame I know. I did attempt the Real Estate field, but failed miserably on their testings. In my defense I was in the beginning stages of a separation and a divorce. That’s not a good excuse is it?
Needless to say I didn’t keep trying. I gave up. Typical of me.
In the past couple of years I’ve toyed with the idea of attempting to be a police officer. After much though I decided, though glamorous, there is a good chance it won’t be the road for me.
Now I think I want to be a chef. How cool right? Creating yummy foods and in the future I could aspire to be the chef of my own restaurant. How awesome would that be?
I think it could be an interesting chapter to my life, it won’t come with out sacrifice though. Which brings me to the fear.
As I said earlier, I’ve been here for 7 years.
I worry that I could flip and flop and never find the kitchen for me. OR worse there just isn’t any work for a chef anymore. That maybe the glamour of that job is what you see on television. Never going much further than that.
I don’t know what to do, I will however talk to the admission lady and see what they say, the deets if you will. She’s calling me today after work… terrified!
Hang(ing) in there!
