Started working summer hours today, meaning longer hours 4 days a week to get Friday off. Time for a quick video round-up before I head off to the next thing.
First I went to a Women in Music showcase:
Then I went to a rap show:
Then I went to the Osheaga showcase at CMW:
Enjoy! I’ll have some more non-music vlogs soon!
I’m a little behind with editing Vlogs so here are 3 more!
First I painted my nails blue:
Then I opened my April Birchbox
Lastly, I saw METZ at CMW
Lately, I’ve enjoyed reading a lot of autobiographical books/memoirs from female writers like Lena Dunham, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jenny Lawson, Julie Klausner and my reaction to all of them are always “man, their lives seem so interesting and inspiring.”
But when I think more about it, I’m satisfied and happy with my own life and it gets interesting too. Though it’s fun to occasionally live through the eyes of others in books (and I guess social media), it’s important to carve your own paths, interests, adventures. I’m constantly obsessed with trying new things whether it be food, music or experiences.
This blog has been an awesome way to document some of these things and I thank all my readers for making me feel like a star of my own life.
The past few weeks have been a little bit crazy. I’ve hardly had more than 20 minutes to sit down in my apartment before heading out to a another event or going to work or working at an event. As summer is approaching, this isn’t really going to change much for the next three months.
My friends like to ask me “How do you do it? How do you have the energy?” There’s one simple answer:
I just do it.
If I had to question my energy levels or give up on things because I was too tired, I would literally never do anything. Thinking too much about things like that is a literal waste of energy. I would become overwhelmed with the things I need to do instead of actually doing them.
That’s not to say that I don’t value rest. Rest is important. It’s needed. I always take a coffee break during my lunch hours, forcing myself to get up from my desk and take a 10 minute walk to Timmies. It clears my head and also allows me to soak in some sun. I also enjoy the occasional Netflix binge or a good sleep in.
However, if I have blog posts to write, places to go, photos to edit, I don’t think much about how I am supposed to do them. I just do it.
In the past 2 weeks I have hardly had time to sit down before going out and shooting more bands! So quick selfie before I am off again tonight. Follow Ride the Tempo’s concert adventures here.
