Personal | Got a job!

Great news! After eight months of looking for work I have finally found a job here in Switzerland! *Carlton dance* Today is my first day of work at La Durée in Lausanne, a world-renowned luxury patissier slash chocolatier that is famous for its exclusive and oh-so-delicious macaroons. My boss said that it’s important that his employees try all the products in order to really know all the flavors and textures through and through, so that means eating loooots of macaroons and chocolates. No problem, boss, anything for the job ;-) The next few days and weeks will probably be a bit chaotic (learning the job and all, you know how that goes) so I hope you guys will understand and forgive me if things get a little quiet around here or if I seem a little absent. But for now, let’s just cross our fingers and hope for a successful first day of work!Personal (Got a job!)


Update: First day went well, thanks for all the awesome comments, you guys are the best!
