I waited in line for breakfast, picking up the toast, the pastries, the beverage. What was the drink? There were few possibilities. The previous week, the US and Romanian teams had been training together in the town of Sinaia, and we got some evidence of what comprised the typical meal: cold cuts and cheeses, bread and patés, an entrée of meat, potatoes, perhaps a corn mush, and some boiled vegetables, and assorted desserts; breakfast would be lighter fare. The usual drink was mineral water, the quantity of which suffered a deficiency wholly inappropriate to the heat (my requests of “mai apa, va rog” were diplomatically ignored —the waiter in Sinaia perhaps thought I was only practicing my language skills); at breakfast, there might be juice, hot chocolate, or strawberry-flavored tea.
But for some odd and strange reason, be it the cold weather, the thought of a steamy cup of Joe or perhaps the dire need for caffeine, I managed to pull myself out of bed and go to Jitterbugs. Now because I am an afternoon regular at the coffee shop, I thought I knew everyone who worked there. Maybe not by their name but by their face, personality and their ability to make select coffee specialties like the double mocha latte with just a bit of foam. But when I walked in the door, something new hit me other than the smell of fresh Colombian coffee at eight o’clock in the morning. The first thing I saw when I walked into the shop was this young attractive girl working behind the counter that I had never seen or spoken to before.
Do check in with the boss and/or employees 9. Begin with the big and challenging projects 10. Avoid morning meetings 11. Make up time to follow up the messages 12. Take a mid-morning break Make a list of the woks to be done a day before A list of the works to be done helps many in completing their tasks but most of them do not know when to compose it.
What surprised me most about my waking hours was that I have been doing my homework before eating breakfast. Most times when I get up I take the time out to cook myself breakfast so that I won’t be hungry while doing my homework. I am also surprised that I learned how to manage what times I would have my homework breaks. On Wednesday’s and Thursday’s, I only have one class which starts at 8:30 then after getting out of class I would get to have the whole day to myself. I would finish up any homework assignments that’s going to be due the next day.
Lucinda didn't answer. “Lucinda! What do you want with your eggs?” Lucinda looked up and said, “Toast would be fine.” Her mom had already finished the bacon so breakfast was just about ready. Lucinda’s dad had not yet come downstairs from getting ready for work. Dr. Steve Sagal was an obstetrician (a baby doctor) and had a busy day ahead of him.
The Art of Coffee When I began my job as a Barista at Mainline Coffee I knew next to nothing about this art. I enjoyed hanging out at coffee shops with friends, and appreciated the energy boost drinking a cup could give me; however, the sum of my knowledge appeared to be only that I knew how to brew coffee at home. I didn’t know the differences between espresso and drip brew coffee, or the differences between a cappuccino and a latte. I was ignorant of how much more went into the process of creating good quality coffee. During my first few months there I strove to learn as much about this trade as possible.
Expressing quite cheerfully, I casually greeted the caller, “Hungry Herbs, would you like pick-up or delivery?” Little did I know this phone call would teach me my next life lesson; quite frankly, people suck. After the man’s order was taken, I casually closed, “Your total comes to $66.87 and will be ready in about an hour.” Upon hanging up, I soon realized there was another three lines on hold. I took each call, one by one. The calls consisted of the three more orders; three more deliveries. Making my way to the back of the store, I noticed the exceedingly long list of food items to make.
Calculated sales weekly and the trucks come only two days a week. The lettuce arrives at the store pre-cut and ready for use in the restaurant. Everything that comes off the truck just needs to be heated-up in order to serve. Another difference is the quality of the stores employees. In-N-Out Burger’s employees always have a positive attitude.
Kurt makes coffee almost every day in the morning before school. Therefore, if I ask him if he would like to go to Caribou and let him drive, he wouldn’t think twice and run out the door with the car keys in his hands. Like Kyle, Kurt likes to spend quality time with people rather than getting a nice card or a cool gift. Kurt doesn’t work a whole lot of hours so we are home at the same time after school. It would be a great time to get coffee and talk about all the homework we have for the
My daily intake is a cup of water in the morning for breakfast, or skip breakfast and have lunch on campus or just don’t eat for the day until I go home for dinner. That, is my daily eating habit and my body use to that. During the 3days food analysis, it was hard because I have to change my eating habit to something totally new that my body have not adapted to. It was very uncomfortable and unbearable, however, I did it; because it was something important and also it was part of my grade. I am not an eater, I eat because my body need energy, nutrient, vitamins and mineral.
