* No particular order and without a doubt, subjective to my most recent music interests — also, definitely not an official list of songs I’d play at my wedding.
Ahhhhh! Thank you so much, miss! I absolutely cannot wait to show you all what I’ve been working on! A few more interviews to wrap up, a business certificate in the mail (crazy) and a couple days worth of stocking new goodies and we’ll be launching our official website/shop before we all know it!
Eternally grateful for folks like you who are so encouraging and supportive through my ventures.
Antrim Dells is a band that I discovered while I was in Grand Rapids. They don’t play together anymore but what they have here is fantastic. I went to a house show at Marlee’s where Jacob Bullard, the lead singer played a few of his own songs and then played with what I think is his now-current band and I received one of his CD’s, so I’ve been listening to that as well.
Both them, his now-music and Amiina have been on repeat for a week and a half now. Hilli is my favorite song by Amiina. I find it absolutely breathtaking and I realized immediately when I heard it recently that I had heard it before, but I can’t remember where.
Up for a little while longer doing work for West Heritage.
You are completely encouraged to be curious.
Thank you dearly! This truly, truly made me smile.
I’ve had some side jobs, but not too many, to be honest. I’ve primarily lived off of what I made as a maker/craftswoman. I’ve worked three jobs — waitressing at the age or 16 for 6 months, a barista for 1 month until I realized I bit off more than I could chew going to school full-time, and a certified framer for around seven months or so last year until I quit to work full-time doing what I do now.
Everyone’s expenses are different, though. That’s something to remember. Not much is required of me right now. I pay my bills, I put gas in my car, I maintain my bad habits and I have a little left to put back into my business each month. I don’t spend money on personal things too often and I never really go out to eat, etc.
Ray told me just today, “You can either make a lot of money and live luxuriously or lessen the amount of comforts you think you need.” I’ve done the latter. Very minimual, all of it.
