It must be that time of the year again. I’m getting restless.
Walking to work this morning I again tossed up in my head getting a chefing apprenticeship. The pay would be lousy, the hours hard. Maybe it all really is a pipe dream. All the ads on TV for MasterChef Australia just aren’t helping. I’ve also looked into getting PT certification. I feel torn between all my different ‘me’s’ sometimes.

I actually really enjoy my job. I have the occasional run in with a colleague there, but my boss is a great guy and the work I do is interesting. I even made it one of my major goals to really dig in at work this year.

Life goes on. Gotta get up and get in a solid walk in the morning before work tomorrow so I can take my Dad out to lunch at Pranzo’s tomorrow. Hooray, for restaurants posting their menus online. Everything they do is amazing but I think the Grilled Cuttlefish will be lunch tomorrow. Yum I love grilled seafood. So off to bed.
