A restaurant junkie
Somedays I'm good with life and other days I'm really not. After my enrollment and completion of the Culinary Institute of America I pursed to do other things. I was a chef and then went to pursue a B.A. in English and then completed a M.S. in Education. I always wanted to teach at some point but there was never a higher point then last semester, I was able to teach cooking in college. It truly was both loves into one. It was an absolute thrill to be able to teach and play with food. There's a big part of me that really misses being in a classroom and there's a real big part of me that wants to be in some sort of chef rol again as I go back and forth about life. Since graduate school, I have been a restaurant manager and a culinary arts instructor as an adjunct at a community college. In my current job as a restaurant manager it's a chain and most days it makes me want to vomit, with their low standards, failure to discipline and their food that is so out dated. The concept is a dying one and they are talking about closing their doors at the end of the year. I know better now then to go and be a "GM" for this company. I'm at the point of what to do next? What will I get hired to do? I need some thoughts, I really do. In graduate school I was a chef, then went to be a restaurant manager and I teach college as an adjunct. I'm at the point of where I want to quit my job, period. I'm tired of the terrible organization, failure to discipline and the poor working environment. I still substitute teach from time to time because I went back to school to be a teacher and to help make a difference in the world. Now I need to make a difference for myself.
