Daydream Believer

Who am I?

Am I a person who works to live or lives to work? They dont ask you this question in college before they thrust you into the world to make a living. They either assume you know or know there's no way to tell before you hit the pavement with bright ideas about your future. It turns out you just have to live a little to find out the answer. Somedays I decide I am just a person who goes to work, does a great fucking job but loves to have friends a family and travel and enjoys having a paycheck to pay for them. Other days, I day dream about doing something I love. When do you crossover? Are you just born a person who does what they want? Or once you decide, how do you get there?

So on days like the latter I think the best thing that could occupy my brain is a day dream. Without a small business loan or the experience to back up the business success of this venture, I create a breakfast joint. I. Fucking. Love. Breakfast. When I was making the above hash I thought this would be on my menu and then I go down the rabbit hole and make up my perfect menu complete with funny names. Some of these are made up and some are real dishes I've made or would do a variation on.
