Appologies I’ll get right on top Of it this week …..promise xxx
Hello all my lovely Tumblr friends,
Figured ive neglected the old blog so I’m to catch up lets see….
Ok so work in the call centre is goooood, I strangely enjoy it! I work with wonderful creative quirky crazy people, all striving for something bigger and better. Actors, musicians, producers and artists all doing their bit to achieve their goals in life. Its always so exciting to hear when your friends have castings/auditions and events, keeps your own dreams alive being surrounded by so much ambition and drive. Especially when the next time you see them they’ve been accepted by a huge agent, cast in a TV drama, or signed a record deal!!! It makes me believe I can do it too!!!
Studio time is few and far between as I’m obviously getting studio time for free, so its still work in progress HOWEVER, I cannot tell you how excited I am about the stuff we are coming up with. We have a handful of epic songs so far with 4 almost fully recorded. I can’t quite tell you what it will all be sounding like lets say somewhere in between, P!nk, Kelly Clarkson and Paramore. I can’t wait to let you guys hear it!
So to conclude the land of Jones….still working, still recording, still walking the puppies, still working out to get bikini hot for my trip to Spain in July, still missing my boy…..
Always loving London Life <3
So today I went over my overdraft….I know you feel my pain…direct debits hitting my account 2 days earlier than they’re supposed to, have taken me over my limit…oh joy! I left Uni 4 years gone now, and I’m starting to think I’m never gonna shift this accumulating debt that Mr HSBC found oh so fitting and appropriate to dish out to a skint student earning -£5 per week and living off beans on toast and recycled tea bags.
Inevitably I’ll get bank charges and will play a game of credit catch up for the next few months and am I a little sad that I can’t afford that Dress from ‘Rare’ that I’ve been admiring for the past month? of course….BUT non of this is enough to make me stop trying and give up, because I want bigger and better things in this life, and sacrifice I must.
Here I am 2010, NOT in the high flying Marketing or Music industry job I was ‘supposed’ to get on graduating from my music business course, but instead working in a Market research company, at the bottom of their tiny hierarchy, making outbound calls to recruit focus groups…the very focus groups I was in fact educated to project manage and run. Working every shift as a means to my end, to support myself in whatever way I can so that I can try again to make a lifelong dream happen.
The thing is that even though I’m 25 and struggling to make ends meet everybody around me is supporting me, not judging or wishing I was some big corporate success, instead showing me patience and generosity, because they believe in me and my dreams ……..sometimes I think they believe more than i do myself.
….what I’m trying to say, is that it doesn’t matter if you’re a success in the eyes of the prying neighbour, or in the minds of the over curious old school friends… what matters is that your happy and that you fulfill the goals and dreams YOU set out to do….Not somebodies elses idea of what you SHOULD be doing with your life. I’m very fortunate that I have friends and family who understand this is something I have to do, and so to those who are not as fortunate as I am, this blog is for you.
bare with me on this one…I’m working it out Stevie Wonder Style “We can work it out, we can work it out….”
