Diary #ivelosttrack

Another week gone, another week where I have absolutely no idea what happened. That’s not to say nothing happened, in fact, quite the opposite.

‘Cook’ being in development is both the best and worst part of this work. There’s so much scope for creativity with food and making a genuinely fantastic product, but actually working out the processes and systems used to get it to that stage forms about 90% of the stress of it all. That’s the nature of the beast I guess, and it will be worthwhile, eventually, but damn if it doesn’t make me want to pull my hair out sometimes.

I suppose there’s some comfort knowing that everyone involved is somewhat in the merde (kitchen French coming in handy here), so it’s not just me. Will be a good experience in hindsight, just not the most fun at this very moment.

On a less grumble-y note, the pub quiz was good fun. Had a nice chat with Ben afterwards – it was probably the first time in the almost 2 months here (side note – whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat) that I’ve found the time to have a catch up and talk about my internship with him. Lots of food for thought and some interesting questions about the future…

So to summarise; a tough week, Cook still ramming everyone involved with the various but somewhat expected catastrophucks (thank you, Urban Dictionary) that seem to pop up when it is least convenient, and a long ‘to-do’ list ahead…

…but I’m still enjoying the hard work, and despite the protests from my body, I’m still willing to wake up at stupid o’clock every morning and make a crap commute into a job that is as stressful as it is fulfilling.

Bring on next week…
