Once upon a time, many years ago, I thought I'd like to be a chef. I've always, and I do mean always, loved to cook. When I was in the service I messed around a bit in the club kitchen and bar, and enjoyed it. So in that gap between military service and my next employment I took a job as a waitress. This is going to sound stupid, but I learned about the heat in the kitchen. Not just the emotional pressure (that's there too) but the physical heat. I sweat A LOT, period. I learned that I simply cannot take that much heat. I agree with everyone to take the lowest paying job in the kitchen and do that for a summer. If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Working in a bakery takes more muscles than most jobs. You need to be able to push and pull and lift. You need strong arms and a strong back.
