well, i’m back from hamburg. my meeting with jesse, the espresso cart guy in hamburg, was really great. he’s got a really simple operation, simpler than i was planning, but it’s really doing well. hard work, certainly, but sounds great. i have to send off some emails and letters of requests for information from some other places, also some thank you’s to people for talking with me and/or providing me with free samples. but i’m very excited. i think this can happen! yay!
in other news, i have a meeting with the parents of a new student this afternoon. they are interested in 2 2-hour lessons per week, which is great for my budget. yay! it’s a 16-year old spanish boy. i also got a call from another spanish woman who also is interested. i’m phone-tagging with her right now. yay again!
did i mention i signed up for some art classes at kumulus? they start next tuesday and i got the confirmation letters today. metal-smithing from 1-4, and pottery from 7-10. lovely. i like that they’re both on tuesdays, also. my violin lesson tends to be tuesday mornings, which means that all my creative type lessons are on tuesday. i like it that way, all focused. i’m more likely not to skip anything when the whole day is devoted to one type of activity. dutch lessons will stay for now on wednesday nights, although matt may need to change this. oh well.
and that’s all the gnus. for now.
