Friday and Saturday I start at noon, doing prep work I guess and then dinner starts at 7-- I'll be working on the line cutting prime rib and doing the saute special. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday I work 9-3 doing prep work. "Busy work" is the nice way of putting it, but I actually think I thrive in that kind of job, doing the same thing for a long time, getting a rhythm and having time to think. There are only 2-4 other people in the kitchen during prep work, and it is a huge kitchen, so it doesn't feel cramped or anything.
I did well in academics last trimester, getting 3 B's, a B+ and an A. Externship counts as grades for a whole trimester, so whatever grade I get will be duplicated by 5.
I don't know what I'll do when externship is over. It seems like the chef at the track asks a lot of his externs to stay on afterward. I'm getting married this September and I have to think about my income and starting a family and all that. But I'm getting ahead of myself. I just wanted to post for people who were interested in what I'm doing with myself these days :bounce:
