Hi ho, hi ho, its off to work we go.
i have now had two shifts at the restaurant. things about life in Port Hedland are very simple. at first i was really unsure about the job and about half way through the first shift i started thinking very negatively and just wanted to go home to my own job that i already loved. The Pilbara Room has a capacity of 40 people, and the first night we had around 30, this was classes as a 'busy night'. those of you who work in a restaurant back home, or with me at the cas, would find 30 people NOT to be a busy night. in fact it would be quite a quiet night. so once i realised there really was no pressure at all in this job, i cheered up a little. i feel a bit snobby liking the electronic system we had at Pier One, but going back to the old system was a bit of a pain at first. had i wrote this blog yesterday, i would have had a much more negative take on things, however, after my second shift everything is beggining to become familiar and not so bad.
there are only 2 chefs for the dinner period and usually 3 waiters, including me. the bar is quite small and there is no tap drinks, only cans and stubbies, so even soft drinks are out of a can. but there's nothing wrong with that. the kitchen hand always says thank you and is quite lovely. the chefs are fun and there are only 3 other waiters apart from me. so, not much variety but i can deal with that.
work ppl, and others are going to the pub on friday night and i'd really like to go, but Dad has other thoughts. he thinks "the pier" (thats the hotel with the pub) is very rough and dodgy, coz after all it is Port Hedland. but hopefully he'll let me go so i can make some friends. its pretty lonely not knowing anyone my age. i miss everyone from home and i miss working at pier one and i miss lying on the couch all day wathing one tree hill. but times change, and hey, i can always go back to all that next year :P
dad just put me in a bad mood so im going to stop writing.
