Don't get me wrong, this isn't a career, and I may be feeling the euphoria that comes along with the feeling that I made the right decision and got the FUCK out of dodge, as it were. Although I am experienced at what I do, namely, being a goddamn Bar Back, there is and was still a steep learning curve. 

But 4 shifts deep, I think I got it, and what's more...I LIKE IT! For one thing, it's a straight up bar - no more kitchen or food to deal with. Also, I am only one of 5 employees. It's super tight knit. Going forward, I really think I can make my mark on this place. 

All that good stuff said, I only want to do this part time; gone are the days of working crazy fucking 12 hours shifts and getting home at 3:30am, sleeping (or trying to) the day away. This is just an...adjunct profession, something to guide me along until something else pops up. 

For now, it will do.

Cool people...and less hours.
That means more time for the bf.

Also more time to develop your new career as the
"Organization King of Chicago."

Way to go!
