On a snowy night in Tokyo, my first 90 days have come to an end. So what does that mean? Apprenticeship over! No, that doesn’t mean I’m leaving Ivan Ramen. I will continue to train under the master for as long as I am able to. All it means is that I will be paid more like a normal employee. A couple weeks ago while waiting to see the doctor for my sliced finger, Ivan and I finally got a chance to discuss his future, my future and how we can make it our future. He was quite impressed with my work ethic and how far I’ve come in such a short time. When I expressed the desire to move out of my bro’s house and into my own apt, he was totally cool about helping me out monetarily and mentally. Sure it’s not about the money, but I can’t live off my bro forever. So that is why I have been searching for an apt lately. I still haven’t found one to call Go Ramen! HQ but I’m working on it. With all that said, the first 90 days have been a blast! I truly am really lucky! I have the best job, the coolest boss, the most supportive family, the most caring friends, and most importantly the best audience to share my journey. Thank you for being a part of my dream!
