Just Another Music Monday

Yes, I’m aware it’s Tuesday. Yes, I’m aware there are 11 songs instead of 10. Deal with it.

Also, prepare yourselves. I’ve witnessed some ridiculous shenanigans on the Red Line recently…well, and in general. I can’t wait to share them with you. In the meantime…. Listen. Enjoy. Share. But most importantly? Have a great week. Try to stay sane since I’m sure I won’t – it’s moving week and my moving crew will be here in T-minus 53 hours and guess who only has four boxes packed. Whoops?

Live The Life You Love

One of my coworkers is an actor. I’d call him a “starving artist” type, but we work in a restaurant so there’s always food to eat. When the kitchen makes something extra on accident, it goes up for grabs. Therefore, neither he nor any of the rest of our staff is technically a “starving artist” despite the fact that it seems half of them are actors.

Anyways…he made a short film the other day that I’d like to share with you. The whole point it is to live the life you love. It’s about a guy named Rizzo who works in Corporate America and dreams of leaving his cubicle and whack-job boss behind to live the life he loves and pursue that which makes him happy. I couldn’t relate to this more. Take five minutes and watch it. Leave your thoughts in the comments below – I’m sure Dan would love to hear what you think of it.

Are you doing what you want to be doing with your life? Are you living the life you love?

Music Monday (The Post-Memorial-Day-Hiatus Extended Remix)

As I’m sure you’re aware, last Monday was Memorial Day. I was also exhausted after working Friday night, pulling doubles Saturday and Sunday, then working again Monday. Rather than woo you with new music, I opted to sleep. I know, call me selfish but Monday night was all about me. I’m not sure how this is different from any other night, but still… #SorryNotSorry

So since I’ve been slacking, I’m scratching my 10-song-standard and giving you more today. It’s like Christmas in June. Just with no wrapping paper. Let’s save the trees.

Sleep is Overrated……and Other Such Blasphemous Lies

Whatever genius decided that sleep is overrated must be running the jackhammer and circular saw across the street from my condo right now. Every day for the past week, they have been doing work on the concrete outside of the condo across from mine…..starting at 8am sharp.

For real. So annoying.

Try being a bartender and getting home at 3am from work then waking up to incessant jackhammering five hours later.

So since I’d rather be sleeping, but alas…it’s overrated, I’ve put together a list of other such lies to at least fool myself into thinking I’m being productive this morning. Continue reading
