Damn it has been a while huh?!?!?
It has been many months since I have posted/visited tumblr. My old laptop would run extremely slow when I would get on here. Also life had been the same so there wasn’t any need to blog about anything. Granted there were some little hiccups (like walking out on manager and getting into an argument with him) but other than that life had been pretty much the same
I had put in my 2 weeks at my old job the end of July and ended up working until the first week of August. I started to pack and was on my way back to south Texas. I made one trip to take some of my stuff to my parents house. While there I went searching for some jobs and found nothing to my liking. Most line cook jobs were only paying minimum wage. I started to get so fucking discouraged. So I made the decision to move BACK to Dallas and finish out the year here. I still plan to move to San Antonio but I am not going to say when though. It seems as if everytime I put a month or some kind of time frame of when I am moving, it never happens.
I applied to a few places here in Dallas. But the one that stood out for me was a new place that is opening up called Central Standard. Its new American cuisine mixed with some Asian flair. I have been working there for 5 days now and it has been awesome. So far we only had one day of service (which was for a select few) and the other days was just prep. The restaurant isn’t opened to the public yet, but soon it will be.
Funny thing about looking for another job, nearly every place I applied to wanted to set up interviews with me. I think I applied to 10 different places. Its quite a change when I was in culinary school and looking for a job. I applied to over 30 places and only did 3 interviews. Talk about getting discouraged at the time. I finally landed a job and was there for 20 months.
I guess having more experience and not being in school is what is helping me. I do have to say it felt pretty fuckin cool having my phone ring every day for job interviews instead of me waiting like a crazy person hoping my phone would ring.
So this is long already and that pretty much is what has gone on the last few months. I am living out of my suitcase (too lazy to unpack lol) and debating on unpacking every fucking thing or just leave them packed until I do finally move from Dallas…no fucking clue.
Anyways this is getting longer (thats what she said?) and its late…
love peace and good eats my tumblr peeps!
