(OR) Randomly on Friday
Randomly on Friday – I am proud of myself for my mad adulting skills. (Also, I honestly appreciate that “adult” has become a verb. I know there is the camp of people who dislike it, but I think it is more accurate than calling oneself an adult. We are not truly, completely, “adult” – we have moments of childishness and immaturity, and moments when we buckle up and take care of business. I have moments of being an adult, but I am not one every moment of the day. Therefore, “adulting” more accurately describes my pattern.)
Randomly on Friday – I completed my daily French lesson early, in the time I had between getting the child on the bus and getting myself to work. I felt really productive first thing in the morning – and that rarely happens.
Randomly on Friday – A friend added me to a Denver based face and body painters forum, at which I squeed audibly because this blows my mind. I am constantly surprised by how connected this community is, how supportive, and how there is a group of people that do everything I want to do. Cyr – yep, there’s a group jam. Juggling – group jam, preceded by game night. Dancing – so many groups for that. And now, face painting.
Randomly on Friday – I have been networking my little tush off, putting in bids for gigs and sending out promo material – kicking butt and literally taking names.
Randomly on Friday – a Chicago blues dancing friend is in town for an audition, and tonight we are going dancing. I have been excited about it for days. I need to dance – not the choreographed group stuff I have been working on, but the deep and soulful, intimate dancing that I miss about Chicago.
Randomly on Friday – one of my best friends booked his flight to Boulder for my showcase next month. I may have jumped around the house for a few minutes when he confirmed his plans. One thing I dislike about being an adult is having my friends spread around the world. While it means I have friends in cool places that I can visit, it also means I don’t see the people I am close to very often.
Randomly on Friday – I still need help funding the tail end of my tuition and gear payments. If you have anything to spare, I would appreciate it so much! I have literally been scraping the bottom of my bank account for the past two weeks just to put food on the table.

Randomly on Friday – April has been kind of a crummy month for me. Anything that could go wrong did. I’ve been struggling to pick up the pieces, create some semblance of order, and continue moving forward. And I mean really struggling. I’ve plastered on a smile when I’m in public and broken into tears as soon as I get home, or as soon as someone has been nice to me and asked me what’s going on. Yesterday was a fairly good day, and it feels like today is going to be as well. Chin up, Buttercup.
