Mastering the Mundane

Life can be pretty mundane sometimes. 

I know, my pessimist is showing. As a glass half full kind of girl, I truly don’t mean to start this blog off on such a negative tone. Although, I do feel like sometimes you get so caught up in and concerned with your day-to-day life that the days become ordinary and practical. It seems that this is a feeling most people, if not all, can relate to- especially adults. The older I get and the more time I let pass in the mundanity of it all, I realize the only way to bring excitement to your live is to actively seek it out.

Mind Over Matter

In the blink of eye July has ended and August has begun. As time flies by, people like me are attempting to keep up with the fast-pace of the world while also simultaneously  trying to get ahead of the curve, and remembering how important it is to slow down and take time for yourself. Trying to do three conflicting things at one time proves to be a bit difficult. Imagine playing catch up, working to get ahead and also remembering to take a  pause all at the same time. You probably do it, too, without realizing it. Sometimes it’s better that way.

In between

I was listening to my music on shuffle the other day while driving and I came across an older country song that I hadn’t heard in a few years. Instead of pressing skip, like I normally do if I can’t sing a-long word for word, I decided to give the old song a re-listen. Wow, am I glad I did. It may sound dramatic to some that a song, or lyrics in a song, can resonate so personally to different individuals lives. But, that is definitely the reason I love music as much as I do. Anyways, as I was humming a long to the tune I really listened to the words and it got me thinking.

Aiming High and Almost Hitting the Mark in ‘Defacing Michael Jackson’

This is not a musical about Michael Jackson.

That might not seem like something that needs to be said but, even the mention of Michael Jackson could lead others to expect some grand musical odyssey through the life of the King of Pop. While it isn’t a play technically about him, the playwright Aurin Squire has put together a coming-of-age journey that uses Michael Jackson as a metaphor. This world premiere play focuses on a group of friends, the main and only members of the Opa-Locka Michael Jackson Fan Club, and their hopeful attempt at creating the perfect mural of their musical idol.

Two Years Down…Many To Go!

This Month, February 13th to be exact, marked my two year “workiversary”. I had to read that a few times before it really sank in. I mean two years? Where does the time go?

Then you blink and a year goes by.  Before you realize it, you are two years deep into your marketing career and absolutely loving your time doing it.
