- Practice piano at least 2x/week. New scale each week, and all my fave music.
(I don’t think I’m moving it again! I can’t believe how much I’ve spent to move it for the last 10 years, when I NEVER USE IT.) (I also can’t imagine being without it.)
- Master circular breathing already!!!
- Practice guitar regularly.
- Start hooping again!
- Ooh! Start juggling again.
- Finish learning Tarot and start reading.
That’s it. I’ve been doing yoga and belly dance since we closed the show. That’s easy to keep up. Classes suit me. It’s self-direction I squander.
I have some other intentions. Like everyone, I want to lose weight. I gained 10 lbs after we closed! One month, TEN solid pounds. Oh well, I can blame the holidays, like everyone. I was so close! Only 10 lbs and I would’ve been back at my high school weight! Instead, I want to lose twenty now, which is a little overwhelming to consider.
I’ll get there again. It was exciting to see the old me. I was fat and miserable with Jax. Why didn’t I see it? (The answer: Depression is not necessarily a pervasive bad feeling, but the inability to feel anything at all.)
I have Jax and Carrie to thank for the Pack ‘n’ Panic diet. Whenever they were there, I hid in my room with nuts and oranges. It’s pretty much all I ate. It kept me nutty and orange, and I lost 15 lbs before the move! (Another 5 by the time we closed.) I looked great in my almost-nothings as Adelaide.
I’m traveling! My bestie Jordan’s husband is finally being stationed somewhere stateside, so I have to fork up the $$$ now or I won’t get to see Bavaria with a tour guide, a free place to stay, and the best laughing companion I’ve ever had. I’m in some debt, which I don’t like, but you know what? I don’t have kids. I can juggle a little damned debt and live my life! Germany in springtime? Happy birthday to me!
I would also like to go to Indidjinus in Oregon in July. But only if I stick to my resolutions and master circular breathing, for the love of all that is holy!
I don’t really consider Texas traveling. It’s more like going home. I’m so excited. Baby!
Happy New Year!
Oh yeah! I wanted to get back to the band, and I have. I’m basically opening for Kate MacLeod on Thursday! It’s not really the band, just Bill and me, acoustic… before Kate MacLeod!
Okay, okay, it’s just one song, but Cry Me A River. (ha!) I’m excited to see Kate MacLeod again. And I’m singing for her!
Bill’s going to interview me, too, before we sing, for his online show. He’s doing a new thing, a variety hour of sorts, so we’re all chatting for a spell. He tentatively suggested Burning Man as a topic of discussion, but I’d much rather discuss Guys & Dolls.
Oh! How I miss it.
