Unemployed, but Not Starving

A wise man once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.* Now that I have graduated culinary school, these words seem truer than ever. I have finally chosen to pursue a job I will love, and am therefore doomed to unemployment.

This is probably a bit pessimistic, since I only just started my job search. On the bright side, I now have time to cook the elaborate dinners Alex envisioned when I started cooking school. And, I have time to write the about these creations. Starting tomorrow.


* This quotation is often wrongly attributed to Confucius. Like most fortune cookie translations, the master’s actual words have little to do with the English saying, which was probably derived from 知之者,不如好之者;好之者,不如乐之者, or Knowledge is not equal to devotion; Devotion is not equal to joy (translation from confucius.org).

Tomorrow is always the best day to start something! I once knew a creepy ginger kid who was always going on and on about how she loved tomorrow and so on. Last time I heard, she had moved in with some creepy bald rich dude...
