Today's my 6th day working as a pastry assistant. It's harder than I thought. My responsibilities are production and plate desserts for dinner. The job starts at 2:00-11:00 p.m., but sometimes until the restaurant close. There're 3 people in pastry section, but usually 2 people will work together every day. So I'll work with my boss 4 days a week, then work with my colleague once a week. I have 2 day-off though. :)
The long hours working and standing all the time are really hard to deal with, but I choose to do this job. I hope I adapt myself soon so that I'll be able to go on in this industry. I want to be able to say that I love my job and I'm happy doing it.
Since I have a goal what I want to be in the next 3 years, I really need to work full-time. I'll have to wait for 6 months (atleast) until I can decide whether or not I can keep up with the pressure, speed and heat in the kitchen.
