Tomorrow I graduate from FCI with dean's list, outstanding service and attendance honors. I have worked extremely hard for this the past 6 months and have the dehydration and lack of sleep to prove it. I know a job will be very hard, especially in the career industry but it seems I was working so hard for these distinctions to set me apart from the ones that are just there bc they can pay the tuition. My seriousness rubbed people the wrong way and I was not a friend but I was serious, passionate, had a "good attitude" and was constantly smiling bc I just love being in the kitchen. It almost seems to fault me bc I was so serious and focused on the food over shmoozing during service/class. Was it worth it? Does it even matter in the long run?
