So I’ve been a busy busy lady and I would love to give you a taste of all the fun things I have coming up! I work really hard at my job and in my personal time and, though I try to relax as much as possible in those private times away from work, I have so much happening in the next few weeks! I’ve really taken my goal setting and really run with it! You’ll notice that I have a LOT of DJ’ing gigs this month. YAY! I also have tickets to some really great shows coming up as well as some really great events that I’m working/attending for my work. If you don’t know already I work for Amoeba Music. The BEST record store in the country as far as I am concerned! So I just want to give you a little taste of what I do and where I do it! Check it out!

So much fun stuff happening! And this list doesn’t include antique shopping with my sweetie or dinners with friends and such. It’s such a reminder that my life is full of wonderful times and that I should take moments like these to really evaluate and appreciate the life I have made for myself, the people I’ve chosen to be a part of it and the work I’ve taken on. Because when it comes down to it, it’s all very very beautiful.
