Interaction with Guests
I come and go, so I get to interact with my guests when I see them in the morning or in the afternoon. However, I am easily reachable by text, phone or email. I like to use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) application and I practically sleep with my phone on. So reaching me won't be a problem.
