What happened this week? A lot.
- Jenn and I had our first week at FUSE. We made drop-ins free in the first week, and we had a lot of traffic through. In particular, we had a lot of independent women who are new to the Coast, which I guess isn’t surprising. We’re now in our first week of members-only, which makes me feel a bit stressed out, because WHAT IF WE DON’T GET ANY MEMBERS?! But I know that that’s not going to happen. We have a few partnerships on the go, and we’ve sold some drop-in packs, which is great for our second week in. I’m eager to get started event planning, and getting more people through the space. Jenn and I have been talking about doing regular long table dinners, and I can’t wait to get those off the ground – community plus food plus new biz vibes plus drinks plus pals is our ultimate jam.
- I decided to postpone the launch of CreativeMornings on the Sunshine Coast for one more month. Before FUSE came into my life, it made perfect sense to go full steam ahead for a September launch, but then putting together a new business took all of the energy and spirit that I would have poured into CM, and I would rather postpone it and release something that I’m really proud of than force it, just because I had the idea that September was the time. I’m excited to be able to turn more of my efforts to this over the next month.
- It’s only been a week back at crossfit, and I can already feel my muscles coming back to me, which is the best feeling. My brain still wants to push my body further than it’s ready to go, but I’m feeling less and less stiffness in my muscles with every class that goes by. I was worried about joining a new gym, because you never know with crossfit what you’re going to get. Too often it can end up being someone who did a quick certification and just wants to push without really knowing enough about overall training, injury recovery etc etc. But the owner at Coastal Community Crossfit in Gibsons knows his shit, has a sense of humour, and is great. Thank GOD.
- I forgot to mention last week that I learned to shuck oysters, and also killed a crab (Thanks for the lesson, Theunis!). The oyster part was fun, and the crab part was mildly traumatizing. You have to cut REALLY hard through their shells, which I guess is not surprising, but like, it was a lot harder than I expected even with a v sharp knife. I always said though that if I were to eat animals again from time to time that I should probably be ok with killing them, so there you have it.
- Went into the city this weekend, and hung out with pals, and made more new pals, and had a really nice time going for drinks Friday, and to a party on Saturday, and to Lighthouse Park on Sunday. Great weekend in the city, all around. Extra good weekend, because I also got a ride to the ferry, and then saw pals on the ferry and got a ride home too. Yesssssssssss. Also, I spent a bunch of money on clothes which I maybe should not have done, but also it’s been a while, so I’m letting it slide.
- I finally booked a driving lesson. Coast tiiiiime. It took calling the driving school like 5 times, and emailing them twice before they finally called me back today. Driving – here I come! Finally.
Back at having some structure in life because of space coverage at FUSE is weird but good. Not crazy about the packing lunch part, but I’m sure I’ll survive.
That’s all for now, BBs. Love and hugs until next week. Bye.
