If you're curious about what I did right after I graduated from art school, I had no desire to be an artist just yet - I wanted to become a waitress. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a waitressing job with no experience!? Desperate for money, I took a hostess position at an Italian restaurant in Watertown, MA...in hopes they would one day let me wait tables.
After a long 9 months, I worked a lunch shift and changed my clothes to match the wait staff! White button down shirt, black pants, and a giant black apron. Yeah!
This is the perfect reason you should never let your head get too big...
5 minutes into my shift, no customers yet, we're just standing around and Jay, the bartender is the only person that seems to be busy so I offer to help him open bottles of wine. Red wine. Mind you -I had no idea how to open a bottle of wine, I figured it couldn't be THAT hard.
I have no idea how that even happened, but I DO know that in less than one minute, I grew a gigantic ego and got put in my place.
(Luckily that was one of the only embarrassing things to happen in my time at Red Sauce...I think?)
