NYE last year was the last day of my restaurant. We closed and remodeled.
I assumed I’d be funemployed for that time but instead another department wanted my help because they liked me (and still do??) so for two months I did admin and learned I’m not a sit-at-a-computer type of person.
After that ended I thought for suuuure I’d get to enjoy funemployment.
BUT THEN another restaurant needed my help and they still like me too???
I’m very happy at my restaurant. We’re busy and people like the menu and the atmosphere. I like my managers and my chefs.
I even gave myself a promotion and am a manager there now?????
(Though still mostly bartending)
So I’ve decided - for now - no grad school. Restaurants are where I am happy.
I’ve lost some friends this year to stupid drama. And same to boys. Though I was much more mellow on that front this year - thank goodness.
