Working Wednesday | Late Again

Can it count that I was kind of working on Wednesday?  Also that my computer was unavailable to me?  Heck yes!


An awesome friend of mine has a career in the medical world.  She wants to raise money by throwing a fundraiser for her office.  She wants to have one of those paint and sip parties.  She asked me to teach.




Networking sounded so stupid to me in college?  Like why would I pretend to enjoy small talk with a stranger so I can give them my business card?  But this is technically networking?  Also, I love my friends.  And that they’re thinking of me.


I don’t know if her idea will get approved, but I can’t not think about something once it’s in my head.


I want to teach something easy, but REALLY impressive looking.  Something with mass appeal.  All my brain keeps coming up with is sunsets.  Or paintings where you peel the tape off later and come up with something cool.  Or a galaxy?  A galaxy could be fun.


This totally counts.

Famous Artist Friday

So today is going to be a little different because I’m in a mood.  It’s a very specific mood.  I don’t have just one word for it.  It’s something along the lines of “irritated because I’m feeling short on money, but ambitious and stubborn enough to figure it out.”


And out of this frustration, Macklemore.  I just felt a desperate need to listen to Macklemore.  Specifically, Thrift Shop.  Someone excited about not spending $50 on a t-shirt?  I’m so in.


But, I’m frustrated because I want more songs like that.  Like, I feel poor, but I’m ok.  Not woe as me.  More, I’m doing ok.  I can have fun anyway.


So, in that vein, I decided to search out songs VERY specific to making me feel better, even happy.  I don’t feel like making a YouTube playlist.  That seems like a lot of work, and I’ve already done laundry today.


So I’m just going to put the songs I find in here.  (PS:  My train derailed, enjoy these songs that are vaguely related that I totally love)
