My last post is the result of drinking two Titos cocktails.
After I drank them, I walked home and as soon as I got inside, I talked non-stop to my parents for two hours straight. Then I wrote my last post which makes absolutely no sense.
All from drinking two vodka drinks. It was like I was high on drugs! And this is why I stick with beer.
Sunday was Easter, my supposedly glorious day off from life. But I spent the entire day comparing online booking software for my new business. And when I say all day, I mean from 1:30 in the afternoon all the way up until 2:30AM. I couldn’t stop. And it felt like I wasn’t getting anything done. The hours slipped by like minutes – it was a time warp.
I won’t go into the boring details. Nobody wants to hear it and I don’t want to relive it. I went through so much aggravation and stress already.
After all that aggravation, I’ve decided to stick with my current online booking system. And I HATE my current online booking system. I actually fantasized about switching it. But it turns out that it really does offer everything I need.
I’m flummoxed by this whole thing. I really am.
Yesterday I met with the landlord in Bozrah and signed the lease. Then I started freaking out shortly after. “Oaf uck what did I just do? Fuck Fuck Fuck, what am I doing? Am I crazy? But the business is getting sued! I have no choice!”
Remembering that my current business is in jeopardy, made me calm down. Opening up a new massage business is the only move I can make. The rest of it is out of my hands.
I continued freaking out all the way home. I went on Amazon and bought almost everything I need. I spent over $1000 for everything. And today I’m meeting Carmen, a women from Facebook marketplace, to sell me her brand new EarthLite massage table.
A brand new Earthlight retails for $400. Basically, I break it down to the cushioning, the face cradle, and the construction is what you’re paying for.
Cheap table – $100
Face cradle – $100
Memory foam topper – $100
No squeaks – $100
So the pricing actually makes sense. I end up spending $300 on cheap $100 tables just for a new face cradle and memory foam, so I’m getting a good deal by buying off the marketplace. Just $200 bucks.
I haven’t showered or eaten anything. I woke up an hour ago. I’m supposed to be at Carmen’s house in an hour. She lives in New Haven. I’ll just wear my hat.
I went to sleep at 3:30AM this morning. I can’t sleep until all my projects are done. If I stop mid-way, I wake up not knowing what to do or where I left off.
Before I made a list of what to do and what I needed, I was stressed and confused as hell. But after I made the list, I felt alright. And after I bought all that shit last night, I’m feeling better. Finally progress. Moving forward.
I have to get up dammit.
I have to keep this list of To Do’s for my next business opening. This new business I’m opening now, it’s almost not worth the trouble. I’ll not be making much and probably end up paying out the first few months – but if I had more than one of these little satellite businesses, well, now we’re getting somewhere.
I’m thinking big. One in each town kind of big. I’m a maniac. Oh God I hope my idea works. Oh shit I really hope it works.
