So the whoooole day yesterday I was working on Girl on Bike or actually on my Polak Potrafi profile. What is more! I was creating a film scenario as well – for the very first time in life! I’m actually extremelly stressed about this film becasue I have never done anything like that and I have no idea about it. But I watched some other films which other people did and I eventually started creating the idea for my own one. And I sent it for consultations – I’m already receiving some comments! Nikodem agreed to shoot on Tuesday afternoon – maybe a bit late, but some things cannot be speeded up, so I just simply accepted it.
I also work a lot on gathering the team and the most urgent issue is to find someone, who is a communication specialist to consult the whole process and all my ideas. I have no clue about it which makes me feel totally lost. Although I received a lot of good advices from the Polak Potrafi team, I need to sit down with someone professional, who will just spend some time with me and using his/her knowledge and skills, will advice what I should do and how to do it step by step. I keep sending different e-mails now and let’s see what the result will be. Fingers crossed!
I also decided yesterday to create a gallery with pictures from the countries I have visited and I will visit – because this is usually the place I visit on other people’s websites. The idea came to my mind after I visited the website of a cyclist couple – Własna Droga – thank you, guys, for the inspiration! And hell yeah, they have the real adventures and really really good pictures – check it on your own!
Aha, and probably the most important thing for today – more for today than yesterday actually. I decided that I will make an official announcment of the website’s FB fanpage today! I just thought that it’s probably a good moment, because it’s exactly one month before I will departure. Which makes me think that one month only and I will be back on track, yay!
I’m also quite worried that I will not make it but I try not to focus on that too much.. And I started to think what will happen if I delay the departure. But I really really hope it will not be the case!
And in the evening I just got this information that I cannot take Peggy with me to Istanbul. Peggy with her story and our story, unfortunately, has to stay in Poland.
But that means that I need a new bike, which is another thing I have to add to my (constantly growing) “to do list”. Finding a bike doesn’t sound optimistic as for the bike trip starting in one month, which means the priorities do change and I need to figure out, how to solve this problem. “Challenge” – if we would like to call it a bit more sophisticated way! I have one idea and I’m in the process of checking it.. fingers crossed!
– I opened a FB fanpage and sent the invitations to my friends today – at the end of day one of its official existence, I got 137 “likes”. Let’s see how dynamic the situation will be!
– I sent my ideas for Polak Potrafi to three different people that work professionally with PR/communication/advertisment and all of them agreed to help! This is such a wonderful information! So we are having one meeting on Sunday morning to discuss the ideas about the film, but also to work on the communication strategy!
I also had a very very good and productive meeting with Paulina. And I’m really happy to say that she is willing to join Girl on Bike’s team, yay!
