What The Hell Am I Doing?

I’m currently sitting at Denver airport… to go to Florida. What the hell, am I gong all the way to Denver to go to Florida?

Seriously? I have to go half way across the country to go all the way down to the other side of the country? That seems a little backwards to me, if you know what I mean.

But here’s why I’m doing it. So I can  see my family, for free. Yes for free. My mom used to work for the airline so we had some extra benefits rollover.

Here’s the thing about anything that comes for free or for cheap. Most of the time, it’s not worth it. I recently got a haircut, for a very cheap price. And it is by far the worst haircut, I’ve ever received in my entire life. How bad? I asked for a trim, and the woman gave me a Pauly D cut.

My point: I think the reason why the music industry is so hard to get into it, because you have to work really hard for your career and passion. Nothing good in life is cheap, free and easy to come by.

So I’ll take the lower paying jobs, and the long hours and the hard work, because I know it will pay off.


Patience is a Virtue

As everyone tells me, I’m doing great things for only being down in Nashville for a short amount of time. Right now, I feel like my time is pinched and if I had more time in my 70 hour work week, I think I would have made bigger leaps here.

Weekly, I’m networking about 10 to 20 hours a week and that includes going to networking events/ music events. I try to go to 4 shows a month.. obviously, that’s just a joy for me. I apply for at least 5 jobs a week. I also blog to keep up my writing skills and I continue to do freelance work whenever I can. Did I mention I have a little bit of a social life?

Never the less, I’m trying extremely hard. Like most girls my age try to really hard to be in a relationship, I’m trying really hard to get my career on the go! I guess only time will tell!

My point: Beggars can’t be choosers.

Here’s a great song, I totally forgot about! Normal like you is a great band!
