I swear, that title is not meant to scare anyone. I just had to say it out loud since it is kind of what I experienced. My weekend was one busy one. I enjoyed it anyways and also learnt some lessons that I never expected to ever learn.
Sales and marketing is hard. very hard. On Friday and Saturday, I was helping out a friend who was organizing an event by handing out flyers to people in my town. This experience made me respect all those people who go out there with a product aiming to sell it.
Approaching people and just giving them flyers seemed like an easy task. But, then started the weird looks, the people who didn’t even want to look at me, the ones who assumed that I was trying to sell them something and wanted nothing to do with me and the most weird ones, who wanted my number (like really weird guys hitting on me). It was interesting though and there were some nice people, who would kindly take the flyers, inquire about the event and make me feel comfortable with what I was doing. I smiled a lot, talked a lot and just let myself be vulnerable. This was a good lesson for me and I have a new respect for salespersons.
On Saturday, I also did laundry and some cleaning in the house. I always feel some kind of laziness before I start cleaning but after am through, I always feel so much better. It feels like I have accomplished something. And I appreciate myself for that.
Sunday, I slept in and woke up at around 11 am. I love Sundays because I get to relax and rest. That is mostly the reason why I try to get all my weekend cleaning done on Saturday. Oh, and I also watched The Hunger Games and I loved it.
And to finish it all up, I love this dog. Super cute and very playful, always makes my day.
