This day was crazy. I am absolutely exhausted – in a positive way!
I got up before 04:30 and got dressed to go to my job at the customer care. We have been having a lot on our plate lately but I love the vibe in my team and how we always stick together and cooperate. Then I got a message from my crew from STIR UP where I work as the community manager.
We had a group of 13 people coming to see our space during their first meeting in regards to the project Small Town European Debates Network. I was the only one who could’ve been there but the problem was I had no way to get from my job to Zabok in an hour. One of the guys who owns the place said he will pick me up in front of my apartment and that we will hurry to Zabok.
I got off work and ran to catch my tram back to the apartment. And the, I fuck you not, the power went out. All of the traffic lights went out and the trams stopped because they are electric trams. I could not believe what the hell was happening right when I need to get home as fast as possible. I tried to get a cab but the traffic was just jammed. No one was going anywhere. Then the electricity came back on and the trams started working again but I was still late.
Just as I was approaching my apartment I got a message from Goran that he was waiting for me. I literally ran through my apartment, picked up a bunch of stuff, threw them to the suitcase and ran out. Needless to say that I came home with a bunch of crap and had to go to the store to buy some basic stuff such as a toothbrush and a facewash.
I was doing my makeup in the car and trust me that it’s really fun applying mascara in a speeding car. We came on time, prepared everything and I was told that I just need to let the people in to see the space and everything.
There weren’t 13 of them, there were 20. They didn’t come to just watch. The lady approached me and asked me would I like to hold my speech after they take some pics and see the coworking space? A SPEECH? I came completely unprepared; God bless the writer in me. I improvised a speech like a boss. Not to blow my own horn, but I was killing it! Just when I thought I was done and that they had no clue I was unprepared they wanted to have a Q&A. I hate people asking me questions when I am unprepared. Again, the writer in me was giving all types of answers based on facts I did not have. It was crazy and they loved it. I was so pleased to see they were interested in STIR UP and that they actually enjoyed being there, talking to me. They also took a bunch of pictures.
I came home after working for more than 12 hours. I am comfortable in my bed, writing to you guys and I just feel exhausted in a good way. I am finally finding fulfilment in a job I do, both of them actually, and I feel like I am not wasting time. It is very hard because I sacrificed a great part of my social life in order to achieve success in my work life but I do no regret it. I would loveto go out and have fun, but I just don’t find it crucial to my life anymore. Anywaaaaaaays, now that I suffocated you with this short story, it’s time for me to keep on working because tomorrow we have two workshops in STIR UP and an author is coming to promote her book and I am in charge tomorrow. Expect another post like this in 24 hours. I love you all very much!
Sending love and positive vibes,
