new job.

It's pretty fair to say that I've been a bit swamped lately. I took on a position as the chef at Modca, a new cafe in my neighborhood (Williamsburg, Brooklyn) and it's put me under a bit of a rock the past few weeks.

From creating various dishes and courses for the owners to try over the course of a week to planning and executing a 4-day tasting event open to the public to just finishing my 4th day of breakfast and lunch service, I'm trying hard everyday to keep it together.

Thankfully, on that respect, I've been working 14-17 hour days (combination of kitchen time and computer/admin time) without more than one day off since starting and so I've had lots of time to try to "keep it together." So far so good.

I'm excited for this new venture-- it's been a pretty wild ride so far, and I don't always know what I'm doing or what will happen next, but that's really so much part of the fun. Every once in awhile, I enjoy surprising myself-- so that when I wake up in the morning, hung over from lack of sleep, with fresh burns on my forearms, not being certain what day it is, and asking myself what the hell I've done-- it makes me laugh to myself and say "I have no idea."
