Another week passed filled with the odds and ends of life & work.
Sent out some of the business plan to co-workers for their opinions, drew some commissions, prepping for taxes (yay!)booked some parties, and new to the list? Staffed some shows.
In the beginning of the year I fill in my calendar with shows and events we are booked to be in, and it can be daunting. Looking at a list of obligations that seem to take up all of one half of the year, and leave you scrounging for work the other.
Though, it all comes together. After a few Facebook messages coordinated with some phone calls…my calendar starts to fill up a bit more. Each show is now followed by the name of the artists working it. One at a time a new artists name gets pinned to the calendar, and at a time of the year where the stress of no work and little pay is at its highest…..a sigh of relief comes over me. We’ll be okay. Even if we simply repeat last year, we won’t have too much to worry about. All the while, I’ve got good reason to look forward to next year as well.
That said, I’ve been ending my day with a personal relief….
…some good ol’ Minecraft.
