The perks of retail management – random days off. Downsides of R.M. – working on weekends. Eh.
I was super happy today though, because it was the first full day since starting work where I was able to fully relax and kick it with good old friends before they disperse and head off to college again.
I started my morning the right way – having breakfast with K at the new hotspot in Tino: Cafe Lattea. A chic ‘gourmet experience cafe, Cafe Lattea serves delicious milk and coffee drinks as well as fantastic brick toast. I liked it so much I visited twice today.
After sending K off to work, I successfully plowed through my fat list of errands – car maintenance, bank runs, customer service calls, etc. Then, it was happy time with friends!
I met up with Elex and we had a blast Happy Hour-ing like old times at Music Tunnel. The rest of the afternoon was epic. We headed over to chill at Elex’s house, where he gave me a Music Industry 101 on production, sound engineering, and the money-making hierarchy in the entertainment industry. He taught me how to use his pro mixing software and we even produced a techno club music track together. He is incredibly knowledgeable about everything music or industry related, and I was extremely impressed. Then we sat back and just sang songs together, with Elex on guitar.
After our usual Verde dinner, we headed back over to Cafe Lattea. Finally, I was reunited with everyone. Michael, Chaami, Francis, Elex….everyone started showing up. Over milk teas and a gigantic Matcha Strawberry Brick Toast, it was just so nice to catch up.
