Ohhh, it was so hard to get up today. After about three hours of sleep, a quick breakfast and getting back to SeeBloggers fair, unpacking the stall, lending the gear again and three coffees - I was ready to work again :) opposite to our stall there was WOŚP place (The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity) and I event taught one of their volunteers to ride a board, but there was a moment, when Jurek Owsiak, head of WOŚP, appeared next to our stall for a quick interview. I find that man one of the most important polish people in my whole life and maybe I didn't have the opportunity to talk or even get a high five, but I'm glad I could have listened to him standing next to me and saying really clever stuff. As always.
I had almost no time for any photos today, since I was helping Kuba Kaźmierczyk and Arcadius Mauritz with their workshops (and I saved the day with the second one, since the agenda mislead people to a different place than he thought the workshops will take place - and the would wait for each other if I didn't call him and tell about where to go).
Got a proposition to go home at 2 p.m., but after finding a BlaBlaCar (something like hitchhiking, but with agreeing to travel together in advance) at 7 p.m. I decided to stay and help some more. I really like this kind of work at my job - far more than standing in a MediaMarkt hall and waiting for (the complete lack of) customers, also - I really want to get a job in Olympus, a different one than as a promoter... and I know I won't get it, if I leave the hard work about packing the stall for others and comfortably go home instead.
So... we packed the stall in the afternoon and my board was a great help there - some heavy stuff like the printer, monitor, marketing materials were hard to carry, but easy to put on board and ride with them to the cars :) we had four combi cars packed to full at the end, and I decided I'll give my best shot - took one of my managers, Przemek, for a few words and asked if there is any chance to get to work with them instead of running from being a promoter to another company - I like working with them and it's not a secret, and I am good at that work (my inner modesty is hard to overcome, but hey - stepping out of comfort zone, right?) and I was a big help for them, staying till the end. Przemek promised to talk to the Director on Thursday about it, if there's gonna be a good opportunity.
We got to the car as the last ones with Sławek, my second manager, talking about the event, about what didn't work, what worked, what we can do better... and we looked for an open restaurant for 40 minutes, ate chinese-vietnamese food (that was surprisingly good considering how the place looked like) and I almost missed my blablacar :D but riding home with a nice couple in their 40s or 50s, listening to Poland-Colombia football match was a refreshing experience - I'm glad I didn't leave the work to others just to see our football team failing, as they used to do for many years of my life, with a nice change for the last 6-7 years... but the apetite for winning wasn't meant to be satisfied tonight.
Got home, unpacked, went for a walk with the dogs and fallen asleep with Martyna on my arm. Home. The best.
