The Bottom of the Barrel

Of all the things I’ve learned from being a barrel drone, the most blaring lesson is that I don’t want to be doing this for the rest of my life. The daily ins and outs of this business are thankfully what have given me the financial means to support myself thus far through college, but they have also given me the resolve to pursue whatever I might become interested in doing in the future.

The odd people I meet and the quirky stories I am always dying to share have cemented my belief that stories are behind everything (and everyone), and this has really made me more confident as a writer. Knowing that I have found material that I enjoy writing about from doing the most mundane things and that I can make those things seem interesting is something I’ll take with me when I finally pursue other adventures and leave the restaurant biz behind.

Until then, I’ll still be waiting tables and trying to make enough in tips for graduate school.
