Today was an okay day. I am relieved that it is Friday because this was a pretty emotionally draining week. I lost about three friends/associates, still didn't find a writing gig and was barely able to make my ends meet. But, thank God I made it through the week!
This is the good news. My internship is talking about hiring me in next week! Woo Hoo! I will let you know when I sign the dotted line. But, I am optimistic and I have a feeling next week will be the week. And, these days since I got rid of the negative folks, I now have room for people who have my best interests at heart and who will really support me.
I realize that I am a work in progress and I have some growing to do as a person and artist. One thing I really need to work on is developing a thicker skin by not allowing outside forces to take away from my truth. I want to always write openly and honestly. I don't want to be censored by people's opinions because they are just that, opinions. Also, I need to make sure that I stay as positive and optimistic as possible because I need to use all my energy to write and perform as much as possible. And that's what I plan on doing. Over the next two weeks I plan to be creatively aggressive. I will be doing open mic poetry this Thursday and I will be doing my comedy act again at a new venue the week after. Additionally, my brother will be recording my version of The National Anthem this weekend. I am recording a demo in an attempt to sing at a Detroit Lion's game this 2009/2010 season.
Have a great weekend!
I will let you know how the weekend goes.
