The best thing about this industry is you can get a job in the local hotel or restaurant, part time, and see if you like it.

Sit down with the manager and have a list of questions prepared. Don't make too many plans, just go with the flow, be nice/positive to everybody and things will go alright

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
