Is it worth it???

Last night I couldn't sleep because I suddenly developed severe chills. As in uncontrollable, chattering, shaking, muscle-cramping chills that lasted for over an hour. I pulled the blanket over my head and snuggled up to Chef X who, being a little chunky, gives off body heat like a furnace. When I finally stopped shaking, I decided to use the bathroom and then try to get some sleep. Of course, it was just my luck that I returned to a room blazing with light and Chef X stalking a mosquito like a butt-naked version of the crocodile hunter. You see, he is one of those unfortunate people whom are loved by mosquitos but have allergic reactions to the bites. So we spend the next half hour looking for the damn mosquito which was naturally nowhere to be found. When we finally tried to go back to bed, I couldn't sleep because I was terrified that the chills were the beginning of some nasty illness, especially since I was still fighting off the lingering after-effects of a summer cold.

I woke up to my day off completely fucking exhausted. I tried to be productive and went to Bamboo Beauty to get my eyebrows waxed. But that was so tiring that afterwards I ended up simply going to the store and loading up on green juice and organic yogurt . Then I went home and spent the day watching Project Runway reruns and reading a cheesy mystery.

I have burns all over both arms, healing stiches and a nasty cough. I see my boyfriend for a few hours a week outside work. I love what I do, and I'm not quitting...but to all you wannabe chefs out there, think twice. If I had known how hard this would be, I pro'lly wouldn't have gone for it.
