However, I was a little disappointed with the turnout of tonight's event. I had hoped to sell a lot more than I did but at least I got to talk to some nice people and offer some samples. Four very special people in my life showed up to support me though and their coming meant the world to me. My mom also came to help me set up--right after her long, busy day at work, no less--and stayed with me for an hour or so. She is definitely the most supportive person in my life who loves me unconditionally and is, without a doubt, my best friend. I was happy she was there.
I'm going to attempt to peddle ALL the leftover treats I have at my yoga studio this weekend and hopefully they'll go! Otherwise I'm going to be eating a lot of sweets for the next few weeks...
I also received a letter from JET, informing me that they had received my application and that it was being processed...yahoo! I love baking and I love yoga but I need to find something that offers me a little more self-sufficiency. I applied to JET about two weeks ago and early next year I will find out if I made it on to the interview stage! JET is a program that sends native English-speakers (me!) to Japan for a year to teach Japanese to school-aged children. I think getting accepted into the JET Program would be such a wonderful experience for me that would really allow me to grow and learn more about myself.
That's all for now! I think I might run before work tomorrow, which I did last weekend and enjoyed, but who knows--I might be too tired. In which case, I'll take care of myself and sleep :)
P.S. I just wanted to share one more thing: a custom order I received recently for my gluten-free salted caramel chocolate chunk bars.
