life of a post-grad with finding her way

ello blog! just checking in :D

i'm so excited for the line of shows i have coming up! i'm playing at a new location in Dallas which i'm pretty excited & nervous for, but i have high hopes! it's a brand new restaurant and it'll be a totally different vibe from what i'm used to, but it will be so nice to meet new people. also, me and my band rehearsed after some time apart which was a lot of fun! we're playing a few gigs and i'm really happy to keep working with them.

now onto the fun existential stuff πŸ˜… i want to keep this pretty short and sweet. there is so much to be thankful for. i have been thinking about my life and where i see myself in a few years, but i realized that i can't look too far ahead into the future without taking the chances i have in front of me now. i've been hearing from some around me that money is the most important thing at this time, but i don't think that's true. of course i know i need to work for something: towards my goals and aspirations, growing my financial stability, and many other things, but i don't think it has to only be by doing something i dread just because it pays higher. i know what it takes to live a fulfilling and meaningful life, and i don't want to hold myself back from anything that would ignite that. i know my goals and i know what i need to do to reach them. i recently read a quote: β€œthe time to live can never be later. it must be now.” i have so much to learn and to see and to soak in, and i am so excited to see what that all entails.
