The past month or so has been a whirlwind. I came to the realization that we are closer to 2017 than the beginning of 2016. This is absolute insanity to me for so many reasons. Mostly, I’m in shock because last December I remember just telling myself all I had to do was make it to 2016 and life would be so much easier to handle (super emotional quarter life crisis stuff, you know?). I did it. And then I moved across the country. And then I sort of sat on my ass for a little before finally coming to terms with the fact that my “hustle” wasn’t really a hustle at all and that I needed to actually do something if I wanted to survive out here. So, I bit the bullet and got as many jobs as I could that would support my creative goals.
Here we are, halfway through August. While it took me a little longer than I had hoped to really hone in on what I wanted to do with Mass Musings, I’m so proud of where I’m finally going. I might not be taking the typical “9-5 path” but that’s GREAT! I’m not cut out for a desk job, I’m just not. I go crazy, lose interest, and daydream about whatever else I could be doing. I will admit, that working 4 jobs has left me with little time to be as good of a friend as I want to be… I’m not joking when I say that sometimes it takes all of my focus just to complete my to do list (thanks ADHD). In addition to that, I’m horrible at keeping in touch and responding in a timely manner, but these are things that I’m working on and improving. However, I know that doing what I love makes me love myself more, and by loving myself more, I will have more love to give to the people that I care about most.
So thanks to my homies, my family, and all of you people out there who are supporting me as I try to keep it “funky fresh” out here in LA. I love you all and I can’t wait to show you where I’m going in 2017!
