Today was a busy day filled with meetings, work and friends. Sometimes it’s a drag to meet with people that I don’t usually meet or chat, especially people from work, but I always I find something interesting from our conversation afterwards. People are genuinely kind and willing to share and help. We just need to be proactive and reach out. In a world of digital communication, it’s easy to pretend to be connected through emails, but I find face to face the only way to connect. Some chemical reaction happens, unexpected things discussed, an emotional connection established, that through emails will never happen.
then it was day of meetings, 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm, and 4:30pm.Lunch was a big salad with arugula, beets, roasted mushroom, roasted eggplant, onion and chickpea. Then I had copious cup of coffees to stay awake. By the time I got back to hotel around 6pm, I didn’t want to talk anyway. Chatting for the whole day was tiring and a lot of info to processed. But I had friends over for dinner. I ordered pizza for them and had kabocha. I chatted for a long time and enjoyed ice cream over topics ranging from skincare, pregnancy, kids, travel….
they left close to 11pm so I went straight to bed and had a great night of sleep. Jet lag is almost over. 🙂
