I like my profession very much, although it is quite difficult - I spend 10-12 hours a day on my feet. When I was at school, one of our teachers noticed me and helped me get an internship. In fact, I later found a job in the same restaurant. So far it's not Paris, but Marseille, but I'm pleased with how my career is developing. Well, after what happened in Russia at the end of February 2022, I realize that I got my lucky ticket when I got my visa and came here to study.
I make a good living, I have enough to live on - not posh, of course, but quite decent by local standards. I live in a small studio 40 minutes from work. Utility bills here, of course, are much more expensive than in Russia, as is transport, but I, for example, commute to and from work by bicycle - both cheap (you only need to buy a bicycle once) and healthy. Here, by the way, many do so. My dream, of course, is to become a chef or open my own restaurant, but that's in the future. For now I still have a lot to learn and to brush up on my pastry skills.
