So...the first week has been survived

Yeah, I have survived my first week here. The whoot! I am totally stoked that the week has finished without too much crazy shit going down. On Thursday, it was pretty sweet because I got that breather, but I also got the kids to do batches of cookies that either got eaten hardcore by everyone or sold. I actually had to turn a battalion of high schoolers away from the cookie tins. This is good news, since we can maybe start a lot of production in these things and have them be a cohesive unit that I can build up on.

Today it was Banana bread and I have to find a recipe that doesn't turn them into short little bricks. They tasted fine, but I'm still wondering if it was the oven or human error. We shall never know. But everyone I gave a slice to ate them and liked them and I had to stop kids from sneaking out with pieces, so they must have been somewhat good.

I also met one of my hockey prospects and I'm hopeful I will get to meet more and or encourage more people to play. I is very hopeful at this time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be consistently applied and the path will get easier and much more drilled in time.

They have also started to make me laugh. Yes, they can be a bit annoying and I feel like there's crazy insanity going on (especially when I consistently find myself yelling at them to get out of the closet where they love to hide for some reason. Or when they tried to hotglue the lock on my filing cabinet. I just peeled it off with a thumbtack, which was kind of amusing and annoying at the same time) but they are making shit and eating it and drawing people in with what they are making and getting some mad skills yo and that's what I want to continue.

I am not expecting for things to be totally easy, but they are starting to grow on me. I don't know how it happened, but it is a surprise that I have come here and gone "Ok. This is what I need to do. This is what has to be done. These are the logistics. These are the people that I need to talk to. Let's make it work."

I guess what I like is that it's progress and that everyone is starting to fall in as a team. I like the atmosphere all around and it's giving me a bit of a good vibe. I don't want to be all gushy about the situation...but it's different, that's for sure.

So wish me luck for the upcoming ones!

PS-Wind was gusting at like 70kmp or so. It was crazy windy to the point that I was able to dry my hair in like a couple of minutes of standing in my front porch. LOL. The Bay is utterly gunmetal grey and fantastic.

That's it.

    I wish you continued success!!
