whats up?

Posted: August 14, 2010 in Uncategorized


I’ve officially been in the restaurant industry for one week.

I’ve scraped tuna for hours.

I’ve mopped floors.

I’ve waited tables.

I’ve made mistakes. A lot of mistakes.

I’ve worked 14-hour shifts for seven days straight.

And you know what? I’ve rolled sushi.

I’ve rolled sushi for Hurley from LOST.

I’ve rolled sushi like my life depended on it…because from now on, it does.

I’ve learned how to roll sushi from one of the greatest sushi chef’s in the USA.

I’ve actually learned how to roll sushi while rolling up the dirty kitchen mats.

I’ve gone into the fridge and grabbed a foot-long live sweet shrimp by pinching it just behind the head because that’s the only spot he won’t curl up and attack.

I’ve taken a shot of that live sweet shrimp’s brain.

And chased it with its guts.

I’ve made sushi for my friends, and made friends while making sushi.

I’ve learned from my mistakes.

I’ve learned mistakes will continue to come.

I’ve gotten drunk off my ass with customers.

I’ve met some of the most hard-working and genuinely happy people I’ll ever meet.

But enough about me, how was your week?
