Reaching out her hand to shake, she offered a friendly smile to Florian. "Nahlahla Odili. Don't worry, I know, it's a mouthful. Nahla is fine."
She looked over to Danica, humming for a moment, looking up in thought.
"Now, that is an extraordinary question. Do I grow to love making money more because it is a hobby, or do I grow to hate my hobby because it becomes my works. I think at times, both. But I believe with anything, if you have a genuine, personal interest - whether it be in a field of work, a hobby, or even a person - you tend to work harder at it regardless. You put the additional effort in even when not required to. I usually find that I have been so caught up in a new style of weaving that I have made far more trinkets and charms than I usually would in a day, and that would be the enjoyment. But in other cases, there may be a specific demand for something I am not currently interested in, and I will have to do it to get the money."
She gave a small shrug.
"But with any job, some areas are more enjoyable than others. All aspects of mine are interesting, but some days, we must notice what we are ready for mentally. My job requires speaking to a lot of people, and on the days that I am too mentally or emotionally drained, I will get ahead in gathering or making so that when I do go out to speak to people, I can dedicate more time in a healthy, mentally stimulating manner."
She waved a hand, not even realising that she had sat down.
"Do excuse me, I do tend to ramble a lot. Words also appear to be a passion of mine." She looked over to Danica. "You ask this because you are not currently doing something you are passionate about, correct? But don't have time to make it a regular hobby?"
