Last week was a grind – but in a good way. One of the days, even though it was only one shoot (I’ve shot a total of 10 magazine portraits within a week not including my own bookings), I got home and my mind was still racing. It was like it couldn’t stop running or going too fast after waking up late – no thanks to the loudness of my ChiliPad my sleeping necessity – but thankfully getting to the shoot on time thanks to Aveda dry shampoo and mad fast makeup skills I picked up from my pageant days.
I text my kindred spirit to check in, she asked how I was doing with my stress level. I told her – “I’m borderline in tears from feeling overwhelmed but absolutely happy to be doing it if it makes sense. Never been happier just wish I had more energy.” She responded with – “I get those feelings…sounds like motherhood emotions.”
You might be wondering what’s with the blog title saying racing heart AND John Mayer, well let’s get to it.
- Speaking of heart racing – next week John Mayer continues his Search for Everything World tour and will be in Phoenix. This will be my fifth time seeing him in concert (I believe I deserve an award for official No. 1 fan) and this makes it the second time I’ve seen him on this particular tour (I brought Mr. Wonderful to floor seats in T-Mobile Arena in Vegas as I thought that was the only place close by and I panicked). After dinner with my kindred spirit Meagan she said, “You spent $300 to JLo and that was just for the experience, I feel like you should spend the same for John since you love him.” We had gone to JLo together earlier this year. So next morning, I text my girlfriend Sommer her asking if she’d like to upgrade to fifth row with me for extra $$ she agreed. I felt like I just sprinted my heart has been racing since. The last time I was so close was this time with my kindred spirit. 5TH ROW YOU GUYS! Don’t call me on Wednesday, I won’t be able to talk. My girlfriend, Jennifer wants me to wear a headband like this to get his attention –
I might need to arrive drunk you guys. If I end up getting his attention and meeting him, I may end up on the news.
- Plans right now are to bring more entertaining posts your way – including wine knowledge. I know, though I’m not an alcohol drinker (Asian flush and a racing heart – see this clip from Fresh off the Boat) I will be collaborating with an expert to share wine pairing expertise because I know 90% of you do drink wine – including my friends and husband. So in order to encompass a complete entertaining set up I’m really excited for this knowledge to share so you can get the entire package!
- I am contemplating getting my blood pumping by adding a home gym in my photo studio. I think I mentioned it before but if anyone has some sort of guide on the must-have work out things (that cost like 5 dollars haha) that would be great. I want a few basic things and I don’t want to spend over $100 because, priorities – as in, John Mayer.
Hope you get your heart pumping and racing whether that’s doing something exciting or sprinting out the door to work on your passion!
