I fully intended to make a post about how January went. It was going to be a January in Review type post. Then the inauguration happened and I got thoroughly depressed. I want to say that I'm out of the that funk but I can't. Severely bummed. There's so much work to be done. I'm so proud to have friends who go out and protest any chance they get. Who make art and music and are defiant. They are resisting and I wish I could be right next to them. Work life didn't really help at all as most of my co-workers are young white women who are uncomfortably happy with life right now. I'm thankful that I get to be on the team with the only people of color in the store. There's definitely some comradery back there. So, that is pretty much my year so far.

I decided to start a new blog. I named it after my pop zine and I'm probably going to abandon this one. I'll be posting about music, upcoming events, past events. It's basically going to be the same old same old as this blog. I don't know why I feel the need to do this, but I'm doing it. I'll probably be back to bitch and complain mostly. Separate the negative from the positive. Anyway, here's the link: Pansy Pop.

Four Years Later...

No, I'm not making any dang resolutions this year. No way, no how. I'm only here because I saw that a friend started a new blog to separate her business life from her personal. It inspired me and reminded me that "oh yeah, I have a blog too....?" I guess it's nice to have. Though, I hadn't felt a need to document anything here anymore. However, looking back at old posts has me kind of missing this. Reading old entries about our friends and adventures has me feeling a renewed sense of appreciation for what I have and how far I've gotten.

I have a driving permit. I have one! I thought that would never happen, but here I am with a driving permit. So very much has changed and I didn't document one bit of it. It kind of bums me out. I suppose you can count the few Instagram pics I take now and then, but they're definitely not enough. Living in the moment is something I try very hard to do. I'm not always successful because I'm spending too much time looking for the right filter or trying to take a shot/video that's not all blurry or with my finger on the lense. It always turns out that I'm not happy with what I shot and post nothing at all and missed a great performance or something really funny or cool happened and I was too busy looking at my phone.

So, maybe I'll use this as a place to store memories. Both, precious and wretched. I don't know, maybe even start writing about music again? Who knows! The next 4 years are going to be from what I can tell, nightmarish. I'm going to need a place to put stuff. Good and bad. I loathe posting anything personal on Facebook and Tumblr is so Tumblr. Whatevs, I just want a nice quiet place to put my thoughts and it might as well be this blog. I'm not saying that I'm back, but I'm sure glad I have something to come back to.
