Fear and excitement

Tonight is the biggest Christmas party we host at the bar each year. This is my third or fourth time to work it… and its crazy busy.

I joke that there is fear in my eyes when I talk about it. It’s full throttle all night long, often finding the bar three or four deep all yelling for drinks. Its stressful!!

But its also exhilarating. Its rewarding. And it flies by — it is over almost as fast as it begins. You don’t have time to think about the time. You don’t have time to think about much of anything except the order in front of you.

Bring it on… I’m ready. I have a 5 Hour in my purse. Tennis shoes are ready to rock. Bottle opener primed to go.

Let’s do this!


October went by crazy fast for me. I was just BUSY, and as we jump into November with both feet I’m still busy!

Last month, it was busy downtown. I picked up a lot of nights in the bar — something that paid off really well, and I am SO grateful for that fact. It’s left me on a total vampire schedule (I just can’t flip flop like most people!), but its also left me feeling very satisfied with the feeling of hard work done well.

Now, though, my workload is completely different. I have a lot of stuff I need to handle for my parent’s business — research in products and stuff. I have a CD cover to design, like, yesterday. I have a friend looking to start a blog and wants me to help him with the design of it. I am trying to do NaNoWriMo. And I’m just looking to enjoy my birthday month and Thanksgiving!

BUSY! That is me.

And I plan to love every moment of it.
