So I’ve been thinking long and hard what should be my next carear step, and I honestly have no Idea 😦
This looka like a simple question – “What to do next with my life?” – but answer is very far from simple……
I’ve been working in hospitality for nearly 15 years now lately every day when I wake up I’m just not excited to go to work anymore. Somehow routine and boredom got into me. It could be as well that the whole industry have changed (not only during covid). People got more and more mean, they think of themselves more and more entitled to things. and that reflects restaurant and whole hospitality industry. It is Incredibly difcult to host someone who thinks they are entitled to everything, they want everything, and servers are more of a slaves rather than “servers”. It could be only in my part of the world but I strongly doubt that it is.
At least now I’ve managed to secure myself a job where I work roughly 40hrs a week which gives me quite a lot of free time. So far I was filling that free time with resting, motorcycle ride and looking for my inner peace and mindfulness 🙂
In the meantime I started learning a bit of YouTube creation and looking into website development – so far through WordPress only but I’m seariously thinking of starting HTML5 & JSS Courses. I dodn’t know.
From one side it feels boring – sitting in front of a computer, clicking away all day, mostly without contact with people …… (sometimes this feels like a huge plus :)) I’m not used to this at all, always working beetwen people, meeting new characters every day.
But on the other side it feels exciting as I will be “creating” new things. Even if it is a simple web page, full site or you tube channel it feels pretty good knowing that it will be out there for people to enjoy (or not) and it will be my creation.
I actually think that 15 years experiance from hospitality can be usefull as I’ve seen A Lot of people behaviours and different patterns. collected lots of opinions on a lot of useless staff so optimizing any kind of user interface might be easier now 🙂
And Biggest plus of it all is that it feels like this is sort of future proof skill at least for next decade.
Any how. WIll see in few months If I manage to stick to those goals. For now plan is to start learning and maybe secure part time internship somehwere by mid summer – It will be weird to be intern at nearly 40 years old but who cares 🙂
Till next time……….
