There is this stupid thing that a seemingly great majority of cafés and restaurants do in this city where they charge you 10 or more pence to sit in and use reusable dishware than to get something for take away in a disposable container.
My friend just got me a job offer bartending at the coolest Soho restaurant.
On the one hand this could be a serious career move. But on the other, it means committing to being in London and away from home for much longer than I originally planned.
On the one hand I’ll be earning more than any other job I’ve ever had. But on the other, London is still the most expensive city in the world and I’ll be clocking 55 hours a week.
I don’t know what I really want anymore. To keep working and travelling my way around the world like I did in Spain and am currently doing here, or to start building the foundations for real career…
This is such a great offer and practically a dream job, but also such a huge commitment that I don’t know what I want to do.
