I kinda want to just end my post with that, because “I’m tired” covers basically every facet of my life right now. Career-wise, art-wise, relationship/social-wise…just, tired. It’s not that things aren’t going well. Many things are going well for me, or at the very least are promising. I’ve had a couple promising job interviews, I’m booking shows that excite me, and I’m scheduling interviews for the freelance article I recently wrote about.
I also absolutely bombed two job interviews, one of the shows I’ve booked runs me at a risk of being in debt to the venue if I don’t get a large enough crowd, and I’m increasingly nervous that I will not be able to write a good feature-length magazine article while also apartment hunting, job hunting, running shows, and working full-time.
I’m tired. That’s it. And it doesn’t seem like I will have a break for the next few months, so I have to figure out how to manage this stress and improve my time management. I really need to work on my self-care, which I’ve already started. I’ve tried quite a few suggestions from this great article about simple acts of self-care, including oxygenating (taking deep breaths), inhaling soothing scents, and mini-meditation.
Looking at my calendar, if nothing else changes I won’t have a break from the chaos until mid- to late-September. I’ll still be actively posting here (my next post will be in within the next week, another book review!) and promise that I won’t be complaining too much. 🙂
