This past weekend Ben and I went to Washington DC which I will be blogging about in the future. Hopefully the near future.
I did stick to my goal of taking more pictures and I will definitely include some of those too.
The reason for tonight's post is to discuss why I find the need to work two jobs.
During my senior year of college I had to student teach. This meant I would spend an entire semester with a full time job that I was not getting paid for. So I turned to serving. I started waiting tables with one of my closest friends who was also student teaching at the time. I continued to work at that restaurant for 3 years (while also teaching full time) until I thought I needed a change and went with Ben to open a restaurant in Chagrin Falls.
I worked there for about 6 months before I decided the drive sucked and I wanted to have a normal life and only work one job.
Here is the problem with that. I missed the money, and without the extra money I couldn't go out and do much, and Ben was still working so he wasn't around. Well it took me a year and a half to decide to go back to the restaurants.
Ben is helping to open up a new restaurant called Market Garden Brewery and I have spent a lot of my time sitting at Bar Cento and have gotten to know a lot of the people that will also be working there. So, I figured why not.
It all begins tomorrow and I'm excited and a little nervous about getting back into it. This will be my first job as a host which is different, but I'm looking forward to it.
The only bad thing is that I have to cancel on my monthly dinner to work. This totally sucks!!! But how can you tell your new boss who hired you because someone else said give this girl a job, that you can't work because you have to go out to eat. I will make it up to them and we might even try a lunch!
More posts to come!
