My Quarter Life Crisis (Photo Post)

Last week on 26th Nov, I had the pleasure of turning the ripe old age of 26. Officially 26 jobs and 26 weeks into my little foodish adventure. Unsurprisingly, this did not go unnoticed with those back home, with many congratulating me on taking a quarter-life crisis to a whole new level. In the space of 6 months I went from a decent 9-5 job, living with my gf in suburban London, to chopping up blue agave plants with a 61-year-old bloke called Enrique in rural Mexico.

Whether or not this project was born out of a want to spice up the limbo between student-dom and adulthood, seems now of little relevance. Half-way into the project I am truly grateful to have experienced so much in such a short space of time. It’s amazing just how much you can learn from life when you feed your mind and open your heart. And, foodishness aside, the kindness and generosity of so many people around the world have never ceased to amaze me.

The journey has been by no means easy. If you think its tiring starting a new job, imagine staring 26 new jobs in a row. When I’m not working, I’m writing. When I’m not writing, I’m planning my next job. These words reach you after a gruelling 14 hour shift in one of Australia’s busiest kitchens. There have been missed flights, robberies, and my fair share of disasters. Admittedly, I have also found it hard to spend so much time away from those I love most. But when I look through the pictures below, I realise just how lucky I am to be on this journey. 26 jobs down. 26 to go…

  1. Great shots. Love the t-shirts! Have you also got a photographer following you around? There are two of us, one of us being a professional photographer, and yet we never seem to have time to shoot pics of ourselves and never have pics when publications ask for them. Well done!
