Monkey see, monkey do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I can take a breath now. Holy shit, have I been busy. I have my first runway show for my clothing company on Friday and I'm still making clothes. It really is like Project Runway, where you are literally making and altering clothes till the night of the show. Crazy and stressful but awesome all at the same time. I can't wait. And of course I'm still doing Predicates shit, but I've also joined another side band, and it's pretty cool. Much different than the Preds, but very good too. New stuff is always fun. And I finished my solo album and am just trying to get the money to get it pressed. So many things in the works... I hope I'm not spreading myself too thin. I don't really feel like it, but I feel a little ADD sometimes. One day I'll be super motivated about one project and another day I'll be pumped about another one. Maybe that's my way of distributing my energy. We'll see if it works.
And through all these projects I still need to work a 40 hour job and make time for friends, family and myself... I'm getting good at this scheduling thing. :) Although owning your business has it's stresses. I'm not talking about money because I'm not really making a profit yet but I've realized how hard it is to rely on other people. Even the people that you thought cared. I learned this when I worked for this awful purse designer a while back. She would work, day and night, on her company and then give me a guilt trip about not caring as much as her. Of course I don't care as much as her. It's not my company, she paid me crap and had absolutely no respect for me. That a sure fire way to get an employee to not care. I can't wait to have employees because I know exactly what NOT to do. Even if I don't do everything right, I know I will never treat anyone the way she treated me.
So 12am on a Tuesday night, I just made 2 skirts and I feel like I have the energy to write in this blog. I must be doing something right...
But I'm still feeling a little guilty that this blog is not so funny anymore... Maybe I just haven't hit my elbow in a while? Get it?? Funny bone? Haha... God, I'm a dork.
Here's a funny tid-bit... There was a crazy naked man running around my back patio last night like a caged monkey. For real... I'm not fucking kidding. It was extremely bizarre and as time passes it gets more and more amusing...
Alright. That's all I got, my sexy things. I love and miss all 3 of you and hope you are living large. :)
Getting it on - one leg at a time.. (What???)
P.S. I was just looking for pictures of monkeys and I'm pretty sure a monkey will be my next pet. That's not weird to have a monkey instead of a kid, is it??
