Currently… in November 2018

  FEELING:  Incredulous that it’s almost the end of the year. I mean, it’s NOVEMBER! 2019 is right around the corner! Is it just me, or do the years go by faster now than they ever did before? Work has been SO BUSY the past two months! . WATCHING: I feel like I always find a[…]

  FEELING:  SO OPTIMISTIC. And nostalgic, but in that “look how far I’ve come” kind of way. My life was turned completely upside-down on this day last year. Right now, I’m working two jobs that I love, living in the most fabulous apartment, dating someone who adores me and who is so easy to spend time with,[…]

  FEELING:  SWEATY. This summer is HOT, HOT, HOT! I mean, yeah, duh, global warming and all that. The humidity in NYC is, as it is every summer, occasionally unbearable! I saw people PUKING from heat the other day. It’s brutally intense! As a result, I’ve been mostly a homebody this[…]

  FEELING:  Excited. Yes, excited! It sort of feels like, overall, everything has been falling into place for me lately. I’ve been working hard, saving up, keeping going. You know, six months ago, if you told me that I’d be in this place by summer, I doubt I would have believed[…]

Hey! (What’s Going On)

  Somebody once told me, “don’t give away your brilliance for free.”   Woah! Not that I’m claiming to be “brilliant,” here! But it stuck with me. So I’ve been holding back here, because of a weird, vague fear of putting my best stuff out there on the vulnerable *I*n*t*eR*n*e*t, and having[…]

February Kicked My Ass

  February is just a joke anyway, isn’t it? I mean, you’re in this shitty January doldrums and then Valentine’s Day pounces on you out of nowhere! Next thing you know, it’s like “Wow, can you believe it’s MARCH NEXT WEEK???” No, I can’t. And not just because I’ve been[…]

Wanted: Instagram Bae

  Many, many months ago, my former therapist asked me to make a list of qualities that I want in a hypothetical future partner. Many, many months ago, the list looked a lot like this: “1. some 😭 one 😭 who 😭 won’t 😭 hurt 😭 me 😭😭😭…” But it’s been many, many months since then, and I’ve given it a lot of[…]

The Walls Have Ears

  I didn’t realize how LOUD I AM until I moved in with roommates.   My roommates are AWESOME. They’re very cool. And chill. And quiet. SO QUIET! I never EVER hear ANYTHING at ANY time of the day. They’re great! They’re WONDERFUL! No, the problem is me.   I’m afraid[…]

Fixing A Hole

  I wrote over 400 words in this draft. Then I erased it all. Call this “Take Two.”   I’m very proud of myself for writing more in this blog. There was a time, not too long ago (OCTOBER 2017) when I couldn’t even fathom stringing two words together. I was like,[…]

The Kind Of Cold That Never Really Goes Away

Well, I’ve finally got it. My boyfriend had it first: sinus and cough and general misery. I got a glimpse of it last week: I hit a high fever (for me) of 98.1, when I usually run a cool 97.0 — but I felt like I was sweating and flushed.[…]

Angry Birds

And at first it was cute, but now, I’m afraid in my own home.   So I might have mentioned on social media (Twitter, probably, appropriately enough) that a family of small birds has built a nest underneath my kitchen window. I was so excited to have “new neighbors” and[…]

Good News! YOU Think You’re Helping

  Wow it’s FRIDAY AGAIN?!? I really can’t believe it! Maybe the “holiday” messed me up into thinking it couldn’t possibly be Friday already. I put “holiday” in quotes because I’ve been working every single day since last you heard from me, except for the Fourth, which I spent having a raging[…]

  FEELING:  Strangely optimistic. Last month got rough, and it felt like there was just negative energy everywhere, but maybe that was just hitting rock bottom, because I’m entering this month with the feeling like we’ve got nowhere to go but UP! . WATCHING: Lots of YouTube — I’d love recommendations[…]

Good News! At Least The Tardigrades Will Survive

  Last week came in like a lion, and it’s going out like a lamb! It’s June, now. Holy crap. I completely didn’t see this month coming. #Sad? As you can see from my photo above, I went to the MoMA this week after my therapy session! This one is[…]

I Say Hey, What’s Going On?

  Well, I disappeared! I hate when really consistent bloggers just up & “disappear” on me, and I always take it personally (HA!). If you took my absence personally and demand to know where I’ve been when I’m not blogging, here’s what’s going on:   Last weekend, I hopped on[…]

Currently… in May 2017

FEELING:  Busy! I’m worried about my right hand, but you know something? I really handle “busy” very well. When I’m busy, I’m more motivated to get more things done. Are you that way, too? I mean, not always important things. Have you noticed that I’ve been blogging like, every day this week?[…]

Currently… in April 2017

  FEELING:  Well, tbh, I have the flu. The head/chest/cough kind! It’s deeply frustrating because I’m super busy with studio work, I’m working on exciting new projects, and the tours have been poppin’ off like wild lately! But you know me: I love having a purpose. Have you heard of[…]

Good News! Obamacare Lives to Die Another Day! Also: PUPPIES!

Oh, HELLO! Well, this week has been a ride. Or, to be more specific, it’s been a roller coaster that climbs steadily up and up and up, higher and higher and higher, and then you puke your life out on the way down! Literally. My week had a lot of ups at[…]

Currently… in March 2017

FEELING:  Excited and inspired. I’ve been working for the past …well, a little over a week… nonstop at the studio I was working at a few months ago. I love love love it. It’s so much fun helping out, and every day I get asked to do something that scares me: power[…]
