…you meet a musician at the coffee shop you work at and talk about your undergrad gigs.
…said musician introduces you to his wife whose group is looking for a female vocalist and suggests you send in some tapes.
…you record yourself singing two songs.
…said wife tells you about their upcoming gig right down the street.
…you go to said gig and musician finds you and tells you wife liked what she heard.
….said wife invites you on stage to sing and jam with the group in front of about 150 Boulder hippies.
…you shake off your fears, you sing the best you can (without warming up and forgetting lyrics).

Tonight was awesome.
T-25 Gamma: Speed 3.0
I have no one to blame but myself. I’ve been working hard at SNIAGRAB and haven’t done anything cardiovascular outside of work in over a week and eating like I have. Some of that weight may be muscle, but I guarantee the majority of it is fat.
I was really down about it this morning, and novio made me this little graphic:
I’m still pretty bummed about the weight gain, but I’m going to keep my energy positive and my snacking to a minimum. I’m so wiped when I get back from being on my feet 8 hours a day, hauling heavy things from one place to the next, but once SNIAGRAB ACTUALLY opens, I think things will calm down enough that I can get back into somewhat of a routine again.
I’ve been a little quiet on the Tumblr-front, my bad!
I got a temporary gig at SNIAGRAB, helping with set up, selling and breakdown. This first week has been exhausting and I know it can only get busier in the weeks to come…
Luckily, I get a sweet payout: a little $$ and new snowboard equipment for the season at a ridiculous discount! I haven’t had new gear since I started boarding when I was 16 and I sold all of my stuff before Peace Corps.
I’m definitely earning my keep; I’ve been lugging around steel frames, building shelves, manual fork lifting wooden platforms full of products, ORGANIZING said products in the warehouse, lifting ALLTHETHINGS and putting them all down…essentially getting paid to what I think of as “workplace crossfit”.
All for the love of GNAR.
JULY GOALS: REVISITED
Doable, I think. I’ve been slacking on how much my water intake is for no good reason at all. Novio has a really fast metabolism and can eat ALLTHEFOOD without extra poundage; I need to get it out of my head that it’s ok for me to snack like he does. Income would be nice, too.
Guess this means I can attempt my first PiYo video today!
…but I was kinda hoping to take the pup to the dog park and do some volleyball this afternoon since yesterday’s was cancelled due to, you guessed it, rain.
Crossing fingers for no major floods this year.
