Been busy writing new songs for PKP IV.
taking a little vacation back home and hanging out at the cottage in Quebec 🇨🇦
There's a frog I found!
Recently I've seen a few friends write lists online listing posi things they appreciate in their life. I think it's a good way to remind yourself of what you're grateful for and keep perspective. Here's mine:
+ (in no particular order)
having the opportunity to play music as a "job"
my bandmates (Gina Sophie Mindee)
my sweet & supportive & cho kawaii BF Roland who makes my life 10x more fun
working alongside Tuesday Bassen! And Ali Koehler!
having a studio/practice space in my house
Mowgli Surf taking over PKP merch. They do an amazing job and our merch is now so much better in every way
all the of the skills I continue to learn from playing in & managing a band
international travel !!!!
living in Los Angeles. Living close to the ocean
being constantly immersed in so many incredible vibrant cultures
being able to drink delicious coffee every morning
having affordable & high quality healthcare (it's no Canada but still way better than a few years ago)
being surrounded by young, ambitious, hardworking & innovative small business owners (Mowgli Surf, Mokuyobi and Tuesday Bassen to name a few) who have inspired me in countless ways and taught me so much about having your own "business" (my band is a business too, weird huh?) So much respect for these risk-taking dream-following creative people.
recent advancements for the LGBTQ population
my GARDEN!!! it's full of succulents and cacti, but also herbs and flowers. Gardening is extremely therapeutic
