My weight has gone up....
I can’t get the stain off of my flared jeans from the vegan Ben & Jerry’s fudge brownie ice cream I had nearly a month ago....
I’m still feeling half asleep....
I’m still contemplating on going back on social media due to lack of views, comments and likes on the videos I upload to YouTube...
Ok....I think that’s all that’s bothering me this morning before I head off to busk in Christchurch and I am NOT going to leave them be!
So let’s break it down on the dance floor baby...
With the weight thing ....no eating again past 7pm. I will try and encourage myself to eat more before then but Yogi’s vegan Jamaican mango curry last night was so tasty as was the homemade Baba Ganoush I made! Looking forward to more Thai papaya salad as well as Vietnamese spring rolls with vegan shredded duck later today!
With the stains thing .....I will either buy some Vanish stain remover, buy a darker pair of flare jeans or buy both but seriously ....no one cares so why should I?
With the sleep thing....I am sure some more fresh air will do the trick! Definitely NOT coffee and was nice to get some fresh air whilst hanging up my laundry just now
With the social media thing? Well, it wouldn’t hurt much apart from the fact that there’s a certain person who may try to contact me however they can and THAT is the main reason why I am staying off for a while! 2 views as well as 1 like from me on my new videos is fine for now.
As long as I know myself that they’re good....then why should I care when no one else? Feel me?
There’s 3 minutes to go before the train....I am at the platform already but today, I’m listening to whatever music I want to listen to after purchasing a pair of Bluetooth ear buds and I suppose my busking gear is now complete!
The thing is....it’ll take me a few hours to work out what the controls are but that’s just my life at the moment or is it?
I’m standing up as I make my way to Christchurch with the heavy gear on my back and perhaps I will eventually think of days when I would rather go out unplugged but one would like to buy black and white paint first to redo the promo on my acoustic guitar case!
And today’s kick off time is hereby confirmed as 9:06 NOT sponsored by Accurist!
Ya know when a new song you’ve just written and performed gets a dose of love? Well that’s what happened to Unwelcome Desires at 9:17! That’s always a good thing and THAT is why I prefer busking to social media!
It’s another warm day today so let’s see what happens!
I was wondering if anybody I know would come and say hi....and this is a positive perspective of anxiety. At 9:30, Angie from SelbyVille showed up. Poor thing has had a bike accident. She’s a nurse too so she’s like a hero to me
9:38 - OOPS! I forgot to add the iZettle card reader!
9:48 - “Your music sounds very mournful” a gentleman said after adding “It’s the times”. A very good point there Duke of You Knows It
10:48 - “How did you get that beat sound whilst you were playing?” Asked a rather fashionable gentleman before I told him how much I miss playing my acoustic!
At 11:43, I had an epiphany it seems. There is no point in me spending money on recording, promoting etc when no one knows who I am!
So, I shall endeavor to just ....keep ....busking.
People have such a short attention span so it’d better to keep playing live than anything else I have up my sleeves!
Decided to finish off at 12:34 with Childhood Ghosts and Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Perhaps it’s best to just do 2 hours or slightly more when it’s so quiet during the middle of the month.
I don’t usually take a glance at the donations of love but I didn’t get any notes today which reminds me to call it a day.
And to lighten up my mood, a girl like me called Chloe came up to me and I couldn’t remember her at all. Apparently we had a jam together just before she went off to uni. I love her dress sense though....especially the rainbow flag face mask and the choker necklace with a see through heart pendant.
Ok, I have time to pack up and if I made enough, I will put the earnings into my account....which ....I didn’t...so that’s going to be used as pocket money ....perhaps I will go and treat myself to a vegan tuna and cucumber sarnie, raspberries, soya iced coffee, fries and a very Berry smoothie combined with a random chat with Curt aka Caesar the talented riddimatic poet at Cuckoo’s Coffee Bar but maybe that was just a dream, a trip to another dimension or it ACTUALLY happened.
Oh and I guess I am too frustrated to care about putting on weight! Bring on the diabetes and all the other diseases!
