Good chats

Had a worthwhile conversation with a member of the gym, and he was sharing his insight on career paths and taking on opportunities that could lead to bigger gains & success. It was well worth it, because I learned how to speak to a manager about wanting to negotiate salaries/hourly wages, etc and how to go about talking to a manager about my needs and asking questions so that it helps to give me more to go off of to make the possible choices for myself and my future. I didn’t have  my dad growing up, so for me, this was a huge deal and I appreciated it.

Besides that I did some heavier lifts today with squats and deadlifts & it felt easier.
