Yesterday I received my Steemit T-shirt from a T-shirt printing shop in Leuven. Compared to the super quick shipping in taobao (Chinese Amazon), here in Belgium, printing a T-shirt takes a long time. But the most Important thing is that I finally got it. I've read about the steemit re-branding plan in the roadmap and luckily, right now I can still wear this one... It seems a great day to walk around wearing my T-shirt since there's a market on the main square every Friday. During the day I went for a walk in Leuven city and in the evening I caught a Blablacar to Paris, it was also my first Blablacar experience.
On the market, I noticed that many people gave me a curious look while taking a glance at my T-shirt, the average time they stop in my T-shirt was around 2 seconds. Some kept looking at the back of my T-shirt for more information I reckon? Maybe next time I would walk a bit slower.
I had my lunch in a noodle soup restaurant that was open by a friend of mine. She is a Korean Chinese, loves laughing, taking photos and can make very tasty noodle soups. She hadn't heard anything about Steemit yet. I told her that there's a big Korean community and Chinese community in Steemit. She thought it's interesting and noted it down even though she couldn't understand the concept.
My experience in Leuven city went smoothly. I went happily to catch my Blablacar in the evening. I was excited because it was my first Blablacar ridesharing experience. My co-riders are two Parisians. They are super friendly and we talked a lot. When being asked what I'm doing, I told them I'm a student and blogger on the side. They seemed quite interested and curious about my T-shirt at first, but after hearing my explanation of Steemit at a paid blogging platform, they became a bit suspicious about me and my words. They asked some random small questions, didn't seem very interested. Afterwards changed topic. I'm thinking now I might need a different way to explain it to people from now on. There's still a long way to go though.
Anyways, after a long ride, I just arrived in Paris now. I will spend my long weekend here. Wish you, dear Steemians, also have a great weekend!
Thanks for reading!
