You know, most times I sit in front of my computer for a good amount of time thinking of a introduction to each post. I never know how to start...is that weird?
If I remember correctly, I last left you writing about my new job with Aramark at ODU. My hopes for a more stable work enviroment, and knowledge expanding work days were crushed. I would rather not bore you with all the details, but I knew going into this position it would be different. But I didn't think this different.
So needless to say, I am back on the job hunt. I am having a problem deciding what exactly I want to do. Go back into Hotels? A restaurant? I don't know, there is many options out there. But I don't know which to do, some thing I do know are: I want to work in the mornings.
If that means giving breakfast a shot, so be it.
If that means becoming a prep cook, okay.
I like having my evenings back, it gives me a chance to do things with friends, and try to have a social life.
I just don't know...
ha - you know, its decisions like this that make me want to drop everything and go to a place where help is needed and this "American Dream" stuff isn't pushed in my face all the time.
Don't get me wrong, I like the thought of money, the thought of THE house, and THE car, and THE restaurant.
But I don't want that to consume me. I have a greater purpose while here on this earth.
Ecclesiastes 12:13: "The last and final word is this: Fear God. Do what he tells you." (MSG)
Matthew 28:18-20: "
I don't know how I went from becoming a prep cook to this...but I guess thats whats been on my heart lately..sorry if it doesn't make sense. I don't know how many time I erased and rewrote this thing.. but I am glad I stopped after those two sentences above.
so thats me right now -
