Congratulations you clicked on Archives.
It’s now 3:35a on sunday morning.
I am at work (thank goodness I wised up and brought the compy) (and thank goodness for free wi-fi), there’s a bit of downtime in between doing all the baking. I’m definitely ready to go back to a regular schedule. This graveyard thing is hard. I’ve only been sleeping around 4-6 hours a night (or day) and that’s not enough. My body just doesn’t like to try and get a full amount of sleep when I start at 8 in the morning.
It’s been a good learning experience and I really enjoy the working with my hands part of the baking experience. And it always smells good (think fresh breads, lots of different kinds). Though at this point I’m kinda on auto-pilot, after 2 nights I have a good grasp of what I need to do and I’m not “learning” much new, just trying to remember what to do, and asking a lot if something is right or wrong. The task now is knowing that I’ll have this info in the back of my head, but most likely I will not get to put it into practice again, and if I need to, by that time I’ll most likely have forgotten what to do. Not to be cocky, but it doesn’t take too much thinking, just do what needs to be done, which for me isn’t too much of a challenge. I’m looking forward to the part of my training where I start to make decisions about how to best run shifts and the store. I still have a lot to learn until that point, but starting next week, I’ll be training with hands-on middle of the day operations and will get a better sense of how the whole operation works and what all there is to do during the day.
Well back to icing pastries and making bagels and breads and trying not to eat everything in sight.
I’m home. Stopped by Tommy’s for a breakfast sandwhich and some fries, since I didn’t eat all night (not the best move). Got showered and took some drugs for my headache and now I’m going to try and get some rest.
Later a little ultimate and then the kels. update – alone time.
