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.
