By 9 am, I was awake and at home, had changed from last night’s clothes into blissfully comfortable yoga gear, started a pot of coffee, swapped out 2 loads of laundry, hand-dried my delicates, stretched, poured myself a green juice & cup of tea, and started a batch of pancakes. I am a night owl through and through, but occasionally, a foggy, cozy, morning comes along and leaves a really lovely impression on me.
Not realizing my father had to leave earlier than usual for work, I took a fat dab or two and made a big breakfast (vegan cinnamon pancakes with bananas, pb & syrup; southwestern style tofu scramble, rustic sourdough toast with a little dish of warm ragu, and fresh pineapple), which I’m very excited to finish for lunch. I’m going to be on my best productive good girl behavior today, and put some solid effort into being responsible. The endless search for a better job will likely dominate the largest chunk of my attention span, then it’s probable that I’ll wander outside.
The blanket of clouds that had shrouded the city this morning has lifted, and a warm sunny glow has taken it’s place. I’m wishing I’d nicked a hoop from Alex’s last time I was there, it’s such a beautiful day, and I want to work on improving my flow before festival season. I’m supposed to be participating in a physical activity daily for preventative care & stress-management reasons, but I’m getting a little restless in my routine.
The second round of auditions for the gogo team I tried out for in December is apparently coming up, so that’s been sitting at the back of my mind as well. To be totally honest, though, this isn’t exactly the scene I’m really looking to dance in. The local club that most frequently hires girls from the team brings in a really creepy crowd, and as I’m becoming more involved with Whiskey Bar and Blacklords’ events as well as running their social media, it’s becoming clear that I want a bigger piece of influence, participation, and satisfaction than being just a dancer typically permits. I’m really into the work I’m doing, and as time goes on, who knows where it could lead. As for now, my breakfast is lulling me into nap mode, and productivity gets to wait.
