More scuttlebutt! Well. Suffice to say, I don't think the instructor I know is renegotiating her deal. I'm not going to ask her what happened. I don't want to make her feel any more down than she's probably already feeling. But, word on the street is she was fired. Fired! That's the word from the gym. Well, I don't know what really happened for sure, only what I've been told. They say she missed too many classes.
It's a shame it came to that. She worked there an awful long time. I feel bad for her. I know people think I'm peculiar feeling that way on account of, technically, she's competition for my business. But oddly, I do not feel threatened at this time. Perhaps it will change when there are six Zumba instructors in town instead of two. My belief will not change though. I believe if I apply myself, practice regularly, listen to students, be reliable, begin class promptly, choose the right songs and the right moves, and keep it fun, keep it fresh, that they will come. They will continue to come. I was told that one student said I was "organized." I suppose I'll take it as a compliment! I still pray every day before class and after class. And when I arrive to the center I pray real loud because the Holy Spirit inhabits our praises says the Bible, and I hope my praise hangs in the air for the next hour and blesses each person.
That's today's excitement in my town.
I had 19 in class tonight. I love the chatter before class. It was loud tonight. Sweetness to my ears.
I earned enough to order a new pair of pants tomorrow! Purple! I was thinking maybe a red daisy instead, but I'm drawn to the purple daisy. Yet, I already have one pair of purple tie-dyed pants. Too much purple you think? Naaah, ya can't have too much purple.
