If there’s anyone out there who’s decided right this minute in thinking of owning a creative life whether it be in the form of a brilliant new invention, a freshly painted drag name, clickin’ those keys for the first time or any other way you put that creative genius to werk, as creative director of one of Philly’s fast rising music and entertainment sites…I have some news for you…the ride (oooh, gurl, it is) will never, never (like T Swift ever) be easy….but you must.
Now, Brenda, that’s no reason to go ahead and get all scurred now, because although it will put you through some truly wonderfully weird torture as you dive deeper into your own creative/life truth for everyone else to see (eek!) there’s plenty of those days where it’s straight up like Ms. Abdul fucking awesome, almost like punching Regina George in the face.
Plus, you’ll also get to experience what’s it like to be a parent for the first time (mad props to those who are doing it and understand that concept)….and just wait until they’re two and are able to walk and talk on their own…calling CPS because you can’t…but oh, wait, yes, you can….so do it.
Diving a bit deeper into today’s spill, I personally take full creative pride in saying that I’ve deeply, deeply (like…deep house deep) considered lately what my life would be like without Philly Mixtape all up in it or what it would be like launched in another city. What it all boils down to is as much as I’ve enjoyed putting in that work over the past few years (and all truth..I have, hunty), I guess lately I almost kind of live for those “ugh” creative/life times because not only do they make you a better self awared human being in both business (you, like, grow and stuff) and in life, but it’s always somehow kind of nice to look at these or those times in business and in true werk that no one ever speaks of just how god damn fucking hard it can be.
But if you’re sistah or a mistah who’s simply out there doing in for themselves while holding it the fuck down while dealing with the rest of it while (barely) finding the time to do you, boo (business way of life…personal werk is the hardest to keep up with) nothing but pure Philly love all damn day whether on or off the local or legendary entertainment map. Because it truly shows that you’re striving to get “it,” even if we may never eventually know the true definition of exactly of what “it” is, but all you have to do is take a seat every once in awhile and just keep on survivin’ like Madge on this delightful Bedtime Stories groove because it truly is so much fucking fun while you’re out there in the creative wild…so get out into the jungle no matter how short or long the vine because it’s all waiting for you.
