Anything difficult is going to burn you out, even if you enjoy it.
But there’s something about life I learned entirely against my will and that’s that you have no idea what’s going to happen… ever.
Even if you don’t become a chef or own your own restaurant or something, those skills will still shape whatever you do. Maybe you’ll write novels about a chef that solves mysteries or maybe you’ll just be everyone’s favorite office worker because you make the best cookies for the break room.
Look at me, for example. I actually became a lawyer, but Trucy has me doing everything else. Thanks to poring over all those law books, I can read installation instructions for air conditioners like no one’s business.
I guess what I’m saying is that you should see your path to the end. You’ll probably be glad you did.
