I know, it's been like a year, or a few months--whatever, since I posted. A lot of shit happened...
So where was I last, the Philippines? So Chris and I traveled through several more countries (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia) and had an amazing time and I took several hundred photos.
But, things were changing, I wanted to get back to real life. I wanted to actually use my culinary schooling. I truly wanted a job. I wanted to be a real person with a real job not just some fuck-about who was traveling the world. However, at the same time I felt like this giant loser, since I've started this blog how many changes have you seen me go through? It all includes working as a pre-school teacher, traveling Europe, being depressed and lonely in Chicago, going to culinary school in Charlotte, and traveling through Asia. I feel like my newsfeed was filling up with friends who were actually doing stuff. And by stuff I mean getting jobs, having weddings, and popping out babies. And what did I have to show for the years since graduating from SMU? A really full passport and a resume filled with college credentials?
Lame sauce. That's it y'all. Lame sauce.
So. Instead of traveling for another year I bit the bullet and took an amazing job opportunity back in the US of A.
So here I am. Back in 'merica. I'm going back to shopping at Walmart. I'm being told that the food I make at work is "purdy" (direct quote from a co-worker tonight).
So here it is. I'm back. I'm living in the middle of of rural America working at an amazing restaurant.
And you know what? I love it. It may not be international, but it's amazing.
So I'm back. And game on.
