Houston 2012: Preparation — Part One

(this is the first post in a series detailing my trip to Houston.)

I am a procrastinator, there’s no doubt about it. And when it comes to traveling, I am no different. I am going to wait to the last minute to pack for this trip because I am always afraid that if I attempt to pack early I will pack something I’ll need before its time to depart.

Outside of me neglecting to pack, I feel I’m doing everything I can to prepare for this trip. I was given a lot of training materials to study up on, which I’ve been doing, but I have also been picking the brains of my manager and general manager about recipe specs and plate presentations. I don’t want to get down there to Houston and not know the correct procedures. I’ve also been inquiring about what to expect out of the work, as well as things to do when I have free time.

It is clear the personalities of each of my managers are directly related to the responses or suggestions they give me of things to do. Best thing I’ve been told so far: one of my them told me to “be sure to pack many prophylactics.”

Although I feel I still have a lot to do still before I leave (edit photos and write two stories, work tonight, softball and golf tomorrow, clean my room & car, do laundry, buy stuff for the trip, and pack) I still have plenty of time to get everything done. I just need to manage my time wisely.

I leave in four days; the excitement is still there but the nerves are starting to kick in.

Until next time …
