Yesterday I went to an event called Taste of the Far Northeast. It was an event put on by the business clubs of one of the high schools I work with. For $3 you got in and had an array of food and entertainment choices. There was Chipotle, Qdoba, Chick-fil-A, Menchies Frozen Yogurt, and a restaurant called The Grubbery. There was also a bouncy house and face painting for kids.
It was fun to go and support some high schoolers. Chiptole gave out tomato seeds to anyone interested, so naturally I took one. I’ve heard multiple people say it’s easy to grow tomatoes in Colorado so we’ll see how accurate their statements are (granted, they generally mention that one needs to grow them in an upside down planter, so…).
I also ended up talking to a high school girl at the graphics booth. This high school has a graphics business where they can print photos on canvas, make bumper stickers, invitations, and I’m sure more. Supposedly their prices are quite good, but since I’m not good with measurements, I can’t confirm or deny that. I took their card so I can email them at a later date because I’ve been wanting to print photos on canvas for a while now but it’s so expensive. So once I know what measurements I want, I’ll ask them how much it costs and go from there. Either way I think it’s great that these high schoolers are getting to experience what it’s like to run a business. I wish I had taken part in those opportunities when I was their age.
I ran into one of my new work friends so it was great to get to talk to her and know her better. Chatting with her made me look forward to work more!
