Self-Loathing Love Song

Exciting news! Our wannabe band recorded our first live three-song demo today! So now we can finally start working towards establishing a myspace page.
So, I have no idea how this happened. But I have recently went from having little to do, to all of a sudden having potentially four jobs! I think part of it was because I was looking for jobs/opportunities here and there and just ended up with a handful of chunks that eventually added up. So now I am a full-time, unpaid intern at the Canadian Mental Health Association, a free lance staff writer for themodeline.com, a weekend hostess at White Spot and a potential substitute for the Westminster Children's After School Society. You may think that I'm crazy for taking on so much at the same time but I assure you, having a busy life is actually quite exciting to me, until I eventually burn out of course. So even though my responsibilities leave me with little room for a social life, I'm pretty trilled about being productive. Plus with so much to do and a better paying part-time job, I now have more than enough incentive to quit White Spot.

I'm not a huge fan of this photo of me. The shirt looks very bulgy and you can barely tell that I'm wearing shorts rather than a skirt. But I promise this outfit looks a lot better in real life. I was either vibing on my latest professional achievement or reminiscing about going to school when this outfit was put together.

and you know what, too? I think the concept of your blog is genius. a meaningful text each time and a quirky outfit to go with it, you (could) / (probably) gather two different audiences at the same time!

Wow you're doing a LOT O__O

Do you get paid in any of the other jobs? If you're thinking of quitting White Spot, that is. Because you need some source of income lol :3

CONGRATS on your band recording! I can't wait to visit your myspace and hear your song :D

That photo doesn't look bad to me! I like your outfit a lot :D

Being productive = good. Starting next week I will have a full time courseload, plus part time jobs at American Apparel and Alternatives Journal. PRODUCTIVITY FTW!
