Although pastry majors are not required to start internships until next year I realize it will probably not feasible for me to continue to work at my current job and have an internship. My job is mind-numbing, but after working here for 10 years my paycheck sustains me in my shoe and makeup passion. Also working in the field will give me much needed experience.
The problem is breaking into the field. I have my resume ready. And I guess all I have to do now is actually send it out. Of course I’m scared as hell. A whole new career … starting a the bottom … again. Please don’t misunderstand me. There is no way I am going to way into a restaurant and become a Master Chef on day one. Anyone who thinks that is either rich as Michael Jackson or as crazy. I did my research before I thought about applying to school and I know that my contract with the Food Network isn’t written in my graduation certificate. In fact I’m quite aware that I will be poor, but I know I will be happy. I love to cook and I’m good at it. Although some things will take more practice.
I did hope to stay at my job until graduation, but I don’t think that’s possible. Believe me I’m happy to leave this nightmare, but I’m frightened to enter an unknown world. I have to take a chance in something I want to do.
