After 5 days of all-day bartending courses, I am now officially a “certified bartender,” whatever that means. I took a week of from work to complete this course and it was actually a lot of fun. I got a great deal from Groupon to pay for the course and I had the vacation time to use.

I'm hoping this will be an easier way into a new job once we finish our trip and move to San Diego. It's not exactly quick and easy to find a management job in engineering so I figured I could bartend until I find a job that I really want…assuming I even want to go back into engineering. This may also be a good way to meet people in a new city once we move. This would be a great social outlet since my typical job in engineering doesn't really lend itself to meeting people I would make my friends.

I'm not flipping bottles just yet but I can make a mean long island iced tea!

  1. It’s good to keep practicing those types of skills so as not to get rusty. My kicthen is available for practice sessions through out the month of april.
