If you'll allow me to geek out a little, one of my favorite game designers and I chatted on Twitter, I know there's a lot of garbage fires on social media, but being able to say hey I like your work is a good thing. Especially since I typically don't want to bother anyone so I often say nothing
So I'm trying my best to stay positive, but walking into my restaurant and into so much kvetching. It's damn hard some days. Doesn't help that I'm the only manager who isn't going through a ton of personal tragedy, so I'm feeling like I have to be positive cuz everyone else has it worse.
Okay, I recognize I'm not in my 20s, anymore. But nothing drives the point home quite like trying to manage a restaurant on 4 and a half hours of sleep. I'm getting a little tired of these close-open shifts.
Every 6 months or so I get the urge to brush off my Fudge Homebrew notes and run a quick RPG adventure. Then I remember I haven't the free time I did in my college-days and quietly save those notes into an ever-expanding Word Document.
