I had an interview, or I think I did, I know I scheduled one; anyway the studio owner was 30 minutes late.  I called her after five minutes and it was obvious she had forgotten the appointment she set up. When she came it was more like I was target practice than a perspective instructor. She told me she was a busy person and kept walking in and out of the room doing all sorts of things.  Her tone was very brisk. Perhaps she had experienced flaky people in the past but I do not like being judged by others behavior. The end result was she asked me to send her an email of times and classes I would like to teach.

She asked me to say my name again, Yo – Ta _Ki I added: meaning little one with energy.  Jumping on me she said that was her and there could not be two of us. Her name is Gayla and she actually is shorter than me but there is no resemblance. I repeated that it was my name and smiled.

I did send the class list to her but I am not sold on her or her studio.  A very harsh and judgmental person is not who I see myself working with. Next week I shall speak with another studio and hope for a more positive meeting. This one today has left me feeling very odd.

    The name of Gayla creates a friendly, sociable, charming nature, but causes you to be too easily influenced by others.

    While you find it easy to meet and mix, and can appear agreeable and compromising in conversation, you can become unbending and forceful if pressed too far.

    Others learn that you cannot be told what to do and you seldom change your
    mind once it is made up.

    You prefer situations that allow a degree of independence, but are reluctant to take on a demanding work-load or responsibility.

    Although the name Gayla creates the urge to understand and help others, we stress that it causes a blunt expression that alienates others.

    Hello Yo – ta – ki

    You and I always like to learn things, so the above definition is what I found when I researched the name “GAYLA”.

    After reading it, you might consider yourself lucky that her energy and behavior did not please you and you walked out the door.

    Keep looking, you’ll find the right spot.

    Love, Sarah

    Thank you for the definition. My gut said to leave but the rational mind (often wrong) said to give her a second chance. Your definition helps confirm my feeling and insight. Thanks again, Yotaki

    Doesn’t sound like someone I’d like to work for. She didn’t even give you the courtesy of her attention.

    That’s my feeling too. Yotaki
