Friday is the day, boys and girls.
I'm moving out.
I'm leaving the comfort of my parent's house. I'm launching myself into the world. I'm going to live in a huge commune full of artists and musicians.
Am I excited? Totally.
Am I scared out of my mind? Completely.
After all, I'm still unemployed. I'm scrambling to come up with some source of steady income. Once I get all packed and moved out, my full time job will be to find a job. It's no easy task in this wretched economy. I think I have every right to be scared out of my mind.
But I think it will be good for me. It's a step forward, which is a step in the right direction.
Speaking of the right direction, I've been thinking a lot about my where I'm at and where I should be right now and have decided that my three main priorities are now currently as follows:
1) Get moved into the new place and make an effort to be a part of the community there.
2) Get a job (doesn't have to be anything special - just has to be a source of income).
3) Focus on music, specifically getting the band up and running again (we practice weekly but still haven't performed since May).
If I can do those three things, my life will feel a bit more in balance and then everything else should fall right into place.
So in other words, it's time for Lauren to kick it into world domination mode! "Engaging world domination mode, Captain!"
Over and out.
