Being an adult is not my favorite thing. I wish I had more time and more energy to devote to my music. The hunt for one full time job makes this very difficult to acheive. Currently I'm working for two contracting companies for phlebotomy and I'm still at the hotel doing housekeeping on days I don't work the other jobs. I am tired a lot, but the money is nice. Come on full time job! Regardless of work struggles, I really intend to practice more and to be ready to play out again; been out of the game too long again. I will strive to find my balance between work and play. Soon it will be easier, I feel it in my bones! Staying ever hopeful is the only way to be.
In about an hour I will be signing up for an open mic in Portland, OR. Holy crap! I'm so nervous! But I can do this! Deep breaths and smiles and singing some tunes. It'll be a hoot! Squee! Carpe Diem!!!
Currently I am on vacation with my boyfriend Jonathan. We flew out of Balitmore and into Seattle and drove down the 101 coastal highway through Washington, Oregon, and California. Now we are leaving Reno, NV and heading back up through the middle of each of the first three states to complete our amazing awe inspiring journey. All this being said, being out here in this great wide open land I am overcome with the sense that never again can I ever doubt how incredibly blessed I am. I am blessed beyond my own understanding. I can never again feel otherwise. This brief time away from the "real world" has brought me back to basics. I am counting blessings and avoiding anything that makes me do otherwise (trying my best as you know). Another blessing is that after this trip I start a new job and with that have more time for my music again and that's the coolest thing ever. Thank you to the Universe for smiling so on me!
Keeping people on their toes since '88!
