HAPPY NEW YEARS STORYTELLERS! 2018 was a whirlwind personally and professionally, both in a positive and negative ways. I have grown a lot in these 365 days and I have learned a lot not only about myself but about the world around me. I have gained so many new friends during 2018 that it almost makes up for the shitty times the year doled out to me. But in the end, honestly, I am just so looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me and this little nook in the woods.
2018 aside, December was a coo-coo month for me! I wrapped up my fall theatre season as a Stage Manager, fought my way through the crowds (my social anxiety and claustrophobia was not happy with this) for Christmas presents and decorations, and read/watched/listened to some great pieces of fiction…as well as some duds.
So grab a snack, get comfy in your footie pajamas and let’s see what all I did in the month of December!

December usually is filled with a crap ton of Christmas music, however, I found myself wandering back to my love of Indie? This month has been a time and according to my playlist of songs I had on repeat, this month I was a bouncing between Indie and Pop. A time has been had.
