March 28, 2023 was another eventful day! My third CIFF shift and then some fun afterward.
I started about 10:00 and left around 4:30. I had to set up two stations and figure out the magic of Bluetooth and Apple iPads.
As is always the case, I had interesting conversations and saw people who knew me, some of which I actually remembered!
When my shift finished, I headed over to Studio W117. I went to meet my friend LynneLee for dinner. Unexpectedly, I was able to see the exhibit This is Trans: A Photography Journey of Awareness and Love. I was blown away by the entire exhibit, but also honored that my photo hung on that wall. A handful of employees said hello and complemented me on that picture. Now there are at least a hundred pictures, so for anyone to even remember mine…….wow!
I also made an amazing business connection that I think will bear real fruit and I capped the day off with a simply delightful dinner with LynneLee. I have been on the hamster wheel for quite a few days in a row, but cannot pass up the opportunities to make these connections, both personal (most of them) and business-wise.
March 29 2023 was my only second shift. I ran a few errands, in and out of a number of places. Then I returned to Republic for Happy Hour and my first time since I toasted all of you in a recent post. As if she we waiting for me, I walk in and right into a hug from Lizzie, the manager.
My shift was great. There was much more traffic during the evening than in the mornings. I talked with so many nice people. Noting specific, just really cool! Here is the outfit of the day….
