I had my first grown up meeting today! I had hopes of walking out of there with a new Needish user and an incredible success story but – in true Chilean fashion – the gerente general (read: top guy of the whole company) could not decide alone and wants to talk it over with the head of marketing. You are the head of the company! It´s free clients! Just freaking sign up! So, not really a success, and not really a failure, just another thing to keep on my to-do list. Frustrating. The highlight of my day was yogurt…so cool and delicious when I thought my brain was melting. Tonight Rodolfo and I are going with Rosa (host sister) to see a theater improv thing. Obviously I am not 100% clear on the concept here. But the main thing is that it´s something different, fun, and free, and our friend Vero is acting, so it´ll be fun to see her. Last night I left the office on a cloud of serenity since I was going to a yoga class! Finally, I had found a studio with a schedule and prices that worked for me. However, continuing my unlucky yoga streak (Saturday I tried to go to a class only to get there and realize it was a holiday, meaning they were closed), I got there to be told there was no class. “But I called!” I said, very upset. The nice girl told me the professor was in the south organizing some yoga event there, hadn´t come back yet, and wasn´t answering her cell. She´s going to call me to let me know if there´s class tomorrow cause apparently nobody actually knows when this professor is coming back. Cool. The evening was saved, however, when I called Rodolfo´s aunt who lives around the corner from the yoga place and had dinner with her and Rodolfo´s parents. Have I mentioned that I love my in-laws? Cause I totally do.
In the spirit of both Christmas and list-making, here is my Christmas list:
- Cute summer clothes/shoes
- Matching bedside tables and lamps
- A futon…although I don´t know if we actually have room for one
- A house plant! I really want one, and we never actually remember to get one!
- A pedicure
And a puppy of course, but “a puppy is for life, not just for Christmas”
