A lot has changed in the past month. I had to make a quick, unexpected move to Hamilton. I had a day where I quit my food delivery job and immediately was hired for two the same day, a bike messenger job at Quick Messenger and a photo booth operator for a wedding photography company. My mother bought me a car. My boyfriend up and left to be a messenger in Chicago without telling me until it was too late. I decided I’m going to work to pay off my college debt.
It’s taking a while for me to realize that this is the time that I need to focus on me and no one else. This means no “helping” with other people’s projects, no waiting around for commitment from a man, no more thinking that I’m not good enough for different things. My life so far has proved to myself that I’ve always excelled at the things I put my entire heart into.
What’s left over is my band, my zine, and my book. If there are freelance jobs along the way, then great, but these are things I have to do.
This poster is made my friend Phyllis Zhu for my next show with my band Et Al. I used to play drums in Which Magic and it’s possibly Sara’s last show, Brendan from Weekends is playing his solo stuff, and it’s Amanda’s last show in baltimore. It’s going to be truly magical.
Goodnight everyone, I’ll see you on the streets soon enough.
