Zapped

It is all finally starting to fall into place. Well I hope. I can’t believe I fell into this role. I’m literally living a dream. I’m so high on life, I quit drinking. Well I’ve severely cut back. I’ve always wanted to work in entertainment or fashion or be a rock-star. I used to make jokes about it in high-school but seriously, I have a chance to work with some really amazing artists who were the originators of the talkbox. I used to listen to their music on repeat. I LOVE THEM. The talkbox just makes you feel good. Their music hits a cord in my soul and all I can do is smile. I’m so blissed out over life. It’s insane. When you hear that phrase, “God works in mysterious ways” all I can do is say amen. I recently saw a post on facebook that said, “dreams so big they should scare you”. I’m terrified right now in the best way possible. So much opportunity, its like the doors finally are opening up for me and in a way that is sustainable and genuine and well-deserved. I’ve spent years building my resume so that I was different and so I could say , I deserve to be here. I paid my dues, I did it the right way, no one can say I’m not qualified. I want to help people, I want to use my skills and talents to make the world a better place, and I mean that. Its almost like, moving out to Arizona accelerated this anomaly of a career path. I told my dad that when you bought their first album in 1978, could you ever imagine your daughter would be the marketer behind their 2017 album. No sir….

I need to stay focused and keep planting the seeds I’ve been wanting to garden for years! Cannot wait to see what beautiful fruits start growing before the close of 2017.

I finally moved out west….

When I was younger, I always envisioned living coastal but somehow I ended up between the desert and the ASU Sun Devils. Yes, that’s right – good ol’ Tempe, Arizona. This marks my week anniversary of my move. It was definitely a rocky start. My office needed to be re-painted because I’m that crazy betch. I should be finishing up this afternoon. The room is a flat, slate gray with white trim. I have my tan suede couch which will occupy one side of the room. The other side will include my table which I purchased a cream knitted table cloth and other goodies from the local thrift store. Needless to say, I’m happy to have the space to write again. I’m turning this into a travel diary and flash back Friday which will include memories from a past life. I’m truly happy to begin another chapter in life. Stay tuned.

Almost April

It’s almost my favorite month of the year, April!! New playlist, lots of spring shows and nice weather for running. I can’t decide what show I want to attend on my birthday, it has me quite distraught. Lots of new friends wanting to celebrate my b-day festivities but I did that last year and I kind of have this rule where I do whatever I please on my birthday. So…. I don’t know. I would love to go to Bottom Lounge but I’m leaning towards a show at Park West. It is my favorite venue next to Lincoln Hall. I don’t really want to make a decision on this one, I think I’d rather flow. So I’m going to just put out into the universe good vibes and good intentions for my birthday and see what comes back. I also really need to shake this awkward vibe, not my best state. I know I can do better, it’s like I reverted back to my pre-college 18 year old self in 3 weeks. It’s this weird out of body realization. I’m fully aware I’m feeling shy but just couldn’t shake it. WTF?
