Possible new exciting opportunity (#114)

Day highlights:

  • Possible opportunity got me excited (more on that later).
  • Went to go shop a bit at Uniqlo with JB.
  • Tried Maison O Thé for the first time (good tea, bad/hard bubbles).
  • Had a lot of fun with JB.
  • Attended the last wedding dance practice.
  • Biked to my mom's place (I say it again and again, but biking is so fun especially when there's no one on the road).
  • Supper with my momma & brother.

Thought of the day:

This morning, I saw a post on Facebook about my old badminton club looking for a new coach and not only does the coach actually give the lessons, they also run the actual club.

I got really excited.

In the first place, ever since my current "club" changed training locations on Tuesdays, I thought to myself that I needed to find a new place to train because I've been playing too much and training not enough.

And guess what? The trainings for this new club are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the exact same times as my current one. Coincidence? I think not.

I always wanted my friends and I to start our own badminton club because it seemed fun as hell and I'd be nice to have our own place to play and train as we want (according to the schedule that is, but we'd have available courts during those set hours).

The other thing that got me excited is that I honestly believe that I'd enjoy managing the club. The coaching part, I don't really like as much, I like being a mental coach / cheerleader, but I don't really like coming up with exercises and stuff like that.

I think managing a physical space or physical entity is a role that would require a lot of creativity and problem solving. Two things that I like and am good at.

I'm definitely going to contact them tomorrow to ask if I can apply or if I'm even eligible to apply (might need to be certified, which I am not YET).

Not gonna lie, this seemed a bit like a sign from God because as soon as I saw it, I was like "YES, ME WANT THIS", which does not happen very often.

We'll see what happens.

Side note: While writing this blog, I also realized that being a manager or owner of a physical space / physical entity (restaurant, coffee place, bubble tea shop, club, etc.) would be something I'd dig as a career.

Good night.
