caught up

on top chef, that is. not the rest of life.

the sad thing is it reminds me a lot of school now and stresses me out a bit to watch it. school would make a great reality show, except no one would understand anything we talk about.

oh, and i'm so jennifer, by the way. in so many ways. however, she's probably a lot better at her craft than i am at mine, considering she's an executive chef for eric ripert, and i can't even get an internship.

i'm working on the not freaking out, not doubting myself, and knowing i'll somehow deliver at the real end even if i lose a couple quickfire challenges here and there (due mostly to said self-doubt and freaking out) this semester. really.


  1. You're not Jennifer! Jennifer said her sablefish was trout!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. AND she was super embarrassed about that but not even cognizant of her mispronunciation of "ceviche."

    but i'm a workaholic who is too hard on herself for sure.

  4. I think it's the same reason why Jim can't watch legal dramas - it's too reminiscent of what he does 24/7 so it's a stressful experience, not an escape from reality.

  5. I love Jennifer! Although she's super thin so that means I inherently hate her too. :)

  6. I have no idea who Jennifer is, but don't doubt yourself! You're the most talented potato I know.

  7. I'm clueless on Jennifer too, but wanted to say YOU CAN DEWWWW IT! We have faith in you, so I hope you do too. xoxo

  8. Sometimes I think self-doubt motivates us to be really good.
    Other times it can be destructive... but I choose to see it as a motivator.
    (I'm the same way.)


comments are tasty!
