School and Work Don’t Mix

Money was never plentiful in our house and on occasions nonexistent. I won’t get into the detail, but I needed to find employment. Approaching the head culinary instructor with my problem, he said “work and school do not mix”. My response neither does “starving or sleeping on the street”. He acquainted me to the chef of one Buffalo’s New Yorks premier restaurants.  I was hired my schedule 2 pm, to 10 Pm, Monday, Wednesday,  Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tuesday was my day off and in between I was to fill out my academics. Well, he was perfectly correct in his assumption that school and work does not mix. Being run down all the time, falling asleep on the bus and now falling even further behind in everything I quit school. Navy here I come.
