And yes, I'm writing letters to various parts of my body today.
What of it?! (growls and stomps away)

Thank you, Phoenix.

OMFG, that fraud is featured on SE talking about how she's a trained chef and self-taught pastry chef. Why must I be subjected to her ********? There is no justice in the world.

I keep thinking my friend sees me as more than a friend. And aside from my hermit-like nature, this is why I wish he'd stop asking me to hang out. Like, we just hung out two weeks ago, I think it was. I then feel bad for constantly coming up with some excuse, until I say yes in hopes that this will earn me a get out of jail card for at least two more weeks.

Good luck on your test Saria! Maybe have a nice glass of wine before bed so you'll get a good night's sleep!

You just know this kind of vague, flowery ******** was written by some clueless HR tool:

Quote:
We will be interviewing to fill a number of positions ASAP this week for Manhattan's most dynamic concept. Please let us know your earliest possible start date.

Efficiency, proficiency at position, adaptability, attention to detail, and passion for food and service/hospitality are non-negotiable pre-requisites. For what we are doing, the best staff is expected and the dedication, service standards, and culinary knowledge that you must employ to be part of our team will be well rewarded with the opportunity for large tips (very high check averages), groundbreaking professional experience, connections and work history with some of the biggest names in this industry nationally, empowerment within one's role in the restaurant, and a culinary, wine, spirit, and service education that will put you head and shoulders above all other candidates in the hospitality industry.

For consideration make certain you follow the following rules when replying:
1.) Professional Resume for hospitality industry must be attached in a current word format or included in the body of the email.
2.) A brief opening introduction about who you are and what made you choose the hospitality industry as your profession must also be included.
3.) Additional information is always welcome and does help one stand out from the employment pool. This can be letters of recommendation, references, photos, favorite restaurants, food/cocktail/wine blogs and publications you read regularly, professional accreditations, industry affiliations, opening experience, and obviously in depth CV's of one's experience in the industry.

Positions Available and Specific Requirements:

A. Front of House
1.) Managers - obvious upward mobility through hospitality industry, 2 years+ as salaried manager with at least two separate restaurants within a competitive market (upscale casual is okay, no QSR or family restaurants as pinnacle experience). Do you have NYC Health permit? How soon are you available?

2.) Servers- Captains & B-waiters - specify your levels of food knowledge, wine knowledge, and beverage knowledge required for each past job. What cuisine styles have you worked with/ passionate about. What service styles have you worked with (single service, 2 person teams, 3 person teams, family service).

3.) Bussers/Runners- Please include specifically what duties you performed at each of previous employers, what the style of service was (2/3 person teams, single service, family service).

3.) Bartenders - What is your passion in bartending, where lies your knowledge base: cocktails, wine, or spirits. What is your "style" of bar service?

4.) Barbacks - What position and employer (or co-worker) previously taught you the most about beverages or what sparked your interest. Which are you most passionate about: cocktails, wine, beer, or spirits?

5.) Host/ess - What important things can you learn about a guest from the time they walk into the door through the end of your first interaction with them that you can pass on to a manager in order to make certain the guest will have the most personalized service experience at your establishment? Why is your position the most pivotal for guest experience and what do you do to ensure satisfaction?

B. Back of House
1.)Line Cooks- Include in your work history what you learned at each restaurant and what your duties were at each station you worked. What cuisines do you specialize in, what makes you love the kitchen, who do you wish you could cook alongside of? Do you have NYC Health permit?

2.) Dishwashers and Porters - What duties did you perform at each of your past jobs? Specify whether your work included opening or closing shifts or both. What prep work have you done in the past? How many seats did each restaurant that you worked in have?
Yeah, I'm sure your project is wonderful, and craigslist ads rarely list the actual name of the place, but what exactly I get from that is nothing. The benefits discussed are pretty much front of the house-specific. You aren't telling me anything about what makes this worthwhile for a cook. Zip.
Of course, the tooting of their own horn makes me think there must be a big name behind it because those places are sure to tell you how much of a privilege it is for you to work for them at $10.50/hour.

Saria, you also get the pleasure of writing a little essay for their scrutiny, as well as the opportunity to sell yourself based on appearance.

Fortunately, you could easily manage both tasks, but crikey, do you want to?

I've already resolved to go for money. Yeah, it's supposed to be that as a cook it's what you shouldn't do, insert condescending privileged chef speech about traveling to Europe and working for free, you need to work places with great food, etc. But you know what, all I really want is to pay my ****ing loans. Forgive me if some day day I'd like to be able to afford living on my own. Seriously, I suspect the day I'm financially free enough where I don't owe a bunch of banks a ton of money, I will have a far more positive outlook on life and on my chosen career path.

See, I'm going to dinner and I totally don't want to. I've been guilted into it. At least, I feel I have. Every week there's a call on one of your days off to hang out, and eventually one has to say yes. Because we're friends, and I have no viable reason other than I don't feel like it (which is often the case, even without the awkwardness of feeling like there are feelings that I most definitely do not reciprocate). But I especially don't wanna because I know, and you're bound to either realize I'm not completely obtuse, or bust out with declarations. And even if you don't, hanging out with you isn't exactly an effective way to get you off my back and keep you in the friend zone. Grrrr! This is terribly frustrating! *whiny voice* I don't wanna go!

Eurgh people in London just annoy me.

They are so rude. Pushing past you and knocking you out the way to get through the ticket barrier before you.

And then I had to deal with some drunk middle aged business men harassing all the women trying to get into the first class area on the train. Who then got incredibly offending when one woman told them to knock their bs off and take his drink ass elsewhere. He has two fostered children you know. It offends him that someone would accuse him of that.

What an asshat. I heard him and his buddies talking about how a 32 year old man going out with a 19 isn't a large gap. That he could get a 19 year old if he wanted (the man is mid 50's at least) and probably younger.

Nice. Real nice.

Ugh. I haven't been feeling so hot these past few days. I'm not sure why, but over the weekend I became extremely... Backed up. Although not in the traditional sense. I won't say anymore because no one wants to read about it! But I called the doctor's office practically in tears and they told me to take Miralax. Ugh. It takes a few days to kick in, apparently. School today was fine, because I was only there from 9-12. Tomorrow should be pretty miserable. I'm already prepared to possibly have to skip my last class tomorrow, even though I avoid skipping classes at all costs.

Magnesium pills work much faster. Magnesium Citrate (liquid) works in a matter of hours. The first time I took it, it worked in 2 hours or 30 mins; I can't recall, but it was fast.
