So I want to tell you every little detail of today but I can’t. I had a very important meeting!! It was lovely. It was crazy to walk through this building to see all the plaques and awards. I was quite nervous before hand to play. I actually meditated for like ten minutes before hand and that REALLY REALLY helped my nerves. I don’t know why I get so nervous lately. I never use to have nerves like this. I just think things are getting bigger, so there is more pressure, more at stake. Like why get nervous about playing a coffee shop yea know? I’m sorry if the bro in the back doesn’t like me, oh well. But playing in front of someone who could essentially add great value to my career - well there’s a reason to be nervous. lol. But it was all good, it actually was pretty chill after awhile. The guy I played for had a treble clef and a bass clef tattoo so we started comparing tattoos which is always fun.
RANDOM SIDE NOTE: Everyone in Nashville is so nice. I love this southern hospitality thing. Everyone is just so nice. Like I have this habit of smiling at people when they make eye contact with me (which isn’t always the greatest habit when you’re at like say a bar and a boy you have no interest in looks at you and you smile - anyway). But everyone just smiles and people are pretty chill. I dig it.
Anyway so my meeting went really well! Super excited about that. They want to come to the studio and listen to the record when we’re mixing it. I hope they like it!
I’ve been in Nashville exactly one month yesterday. (Minus the three days I went home for Grandpa’s funeral). Chris keeps telling me ‘Just relax, enjoy your days off while you can cause things are going to get really busy when the record is done.’ But here’s my issue, I’ve had over a week off! I need to be working or else I want to be at home. It’s like, the time I do have off I want to spend with friends and family. It’s not that I hate not working it’s just if I’m bored! There are things at home I could be doing. I hate getting text messages from people about certain things and not being able to do anything about it. I’m kind of a control freak lol. I feel out of control by not being able to fix things while I’m down here. Especially when my baby calls me on the brink of tears. It crushes me! I just want to bust my ass down here! The record is sounding amazing, the finish product is going to sound amazing. I just wish I could be doing so much every minute and I can’t. I have such drive right now. Like I want to do everything lol. I’m so ready to just start kicking ass and taking names, ya hear?
Well off to enjoy my hummus wrap and chai tea. I love you all and thank you forever and a day
