I moved out/in for the most part yesterday. It was a long ass day and not exactly the most awesome way to spend a memorial day, but whatever!
Joining a gym tomorrow that has an amazing lap pool. Super stoked! And I’m eating super healthy lately. And as soon as I’m settled in (which will hopefully be soon) I’m going to get crackin’ at setting my creative fire ablaze. I need to do things. (like get hired…)
Basically I just want to be successful (and feel sexy). So people who have screwed me over/have been shitty in general can see me/my life and be all like “Damn. Look at her. My loss. I suck. I should quit being a lame person.” (Not that they shouldn’t have thought/be thinking that already…)
But mostly, it’s for myself. Because I have very high expectations as far as my success goes, and I plan on reaching my goals.
Blahblahblah. Rantrantrant. I am more than ready for beers with friends tomorrow!
Well, my dream was to have scored an awesome job in NYC and move up there right after graduation, but that is a lotttt easier said than done. So for now, I’m moving back in with my parents’ for a little bit to save up and find some work/internships around here until I can land a good job somewhere NOT in Columbia/afford to move! Gonna set up a studio at home and do a bunch of freelance stuff, too. Oh, and I want to go to grad school. But I’m taking at least a year or two off from school.
Sooo… basically my plan right now is: convince someone to hire my ass. Haha
Also, I wanna get some traveling in. What better time than when I have few commitments? That probably won’t happen again until I’m like, at least 60.
Watching How I Met Your Mother and drinking some wine.

Why on earth do I stay up so late? I get home at a decent time… I get tired at a decent time… Hell, I even doze off at first at a decent time. But somehow 3am usually finds me. And I’m too sleepy/out of it to do something productive. So instead, my mind just wanders all over the place. And I make text posts on tumblr that no one will read or care about. Because what else will I do? Sleep? Maybe.
Not boring at all! I don't know how many of these would be new to you since I love the classics too, but my favorite bands/composers/singers are Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Charlie Parker, Gene Krupa, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Cannonball Adderley, Gordon Goodwin, Kurt Elling, and Otis Taylor. Hope at least one of them helps with your jazz-deprivation :)
Thank you! I’ve heard of a few of those, so I’ll definitely check out the rest. I’m sure it’ll cure my deprivation! Haha
Favorite jazz musicians/bands? (I saw that you went to a jazz night earlier so I'm guessing you enjoy it?)
I love jazz! I was in USC’s jazz choir my freshmen year. But I’ve been pretty jazz-deprived recently, haha. Honestly, my favorites are the classics. Boring answer, I know. Any suggestions for some stuff I should give a listen?
