Eagles Win the Superbowl

I worked Fri/Saturday this weekend. I was in THE BEST mood on Saturday at work. I felt extra amazing and I didn’t know why. I wasn’t making an abnormal amount of money, but I did buy mermaid shorts. IMG_4007.JPG

Was planning to work for Superbowl Sunday, but ended up not due to tiredness and knowing that all the customers would be too wasted for me.

My trainer is out of town for a week so this week I am training with a different one. I suspect he will be harder on me than my regular trainer.

I’ve had some pretty life-changing conversations in the past couple days. One was about the value of timely, brutal honesty. The other was about changing my life by doing different things on a daily basis. You can’t change if you do the same things every day. I woke up around 6am this morning to start my day early as a response to this.

I am looking forward to getting my finances straight, as I am getting help with that from an advisor.

All for now.




Hi guys

The Energy has been shifting a lot and it’s really affecting me. Things aren’t going as planned, but not necessarily in a bad way. I feel a bit disassociated. I am flooded with thoughts of things I want to accomplish but then also stuck in the three-dimensional world of having to pay my bills. It’s really frustrating to sit with such a large pool of ideas and not be able to get them out. I didn’t work on Saturday or Sunday. And I still need to make rent the first so I’ll probably work tonight and tomorrow. I’m realizing how much I need to widen my network and get help. I need friends with which to do projects. I need creatives. I would like to be a photographer’s muse. I need somebody to help me edit my videos. I don’t know how and I don’t know when but I do know that my dreams will come true somehow.

I’m everywhere right now.

I’ve been MIA, I know!

Sunday I went to the studio with my friend to record myself singing covers.

Monday morning my trainer got some video of me:

Monday afternoon I shot with photographer Jacob Sledhorn at the Brown Palace.

Then I worked Tuesday night. It was slow and boring.

I worked out Wednesday morning and mostly napped and rested the rest of the day.

NOW TODAY IS THURSDAY! I’m at the gym right now warming up.

Sorry I’ve been behind. It’s in my nature and I’m trying to fight it.

Thanks for someone keeping me accountable.



Wow the last time I posted was Sunday? OK. Well Monday it’s snowed so I stayed home all day. Tuesday I worked out and at night I worked. Wednesday I stayed in and did absolutely nothing.

Today was Thursday and I took Odie in to the vet to get his teeth cleaned, which means they had to put him under anesthesia. I was a bit stressed but knew he would be OK and he was. And tonight I recorded myself singing with my producer friend Mark. Stay tuned for that!

Sorry I wasn’t updating this week. I will shoot for updating every day but if that doesn’t happen and I’m not going to feel bad about it because life happens.


I slept late. I would like to work tonight, but I’m not on the schedule.

I just counted my money from last night and was pleasantly surprised. Still, I’m behind for the month so I’m trying to catch up. I’m considering working early shift Friday and Saturday next weekend.

I just had a smoothie and am going to eat some more food before I start getting ready for work.
