Being a chef has shaped my life in many ways. I’ve left the crazy hours behind me though, realising instead that I really dig this “having a life” thing [it’s quite good, isn’t it??]
Chefs work long hours- starting at 8am, and finishing whenever the last plates go out- often not until after midnight. Breaks are dependant on business; if lunch service is quiet enough or finishes early enough you might get a break before getting ready for dinner service (though it may just be long enough to run down the road for a coffee!) A chef who works those hours for any less than five days a week is branded [only somewhat jokingly] a Part Timer, no matter the reason (health, family…sanity!)
This blog is about me learning web design and development. I’m not in a position where I can go to college full time, or take up an unpaid internship- it just won’t happen. Instead, I’m learning from a variety of sources, and doing it in my spare time- another case of me being a Part Timer.
