Upcoming Gigs and the Trifecta Falling Apart

There is a new Femme Shark Communique. Y’all should go read it.

I came up with an amazing idea for something I can sell at performances. I’m wondering if I can get it together in time for my upcoming performances. There are many of them. Highlights are below, and all of the details are at my calendar page. I will say my pet project is Cupcake Cabaret. I started thinking a lot last summer about how the art I relate to most is where the artist is finding strength through what makes them different. I have a whole cupcake piece I wrote about it, which I’ll be performing at Speaking of Femme (in NYC) and at Cupcake Cabaret. I hope to have a video version of it up here after this round of touring.

Things are a little stressful here at the ranch, mostly because I need to get a new apartment and roommate as of May 1st, I still don’t have a day job, the unemployment extension act is ambiguously enacted in NJ at best (at least in terms of giving me a straight answer about whether I’ll be able to pay my bills) and you know, maintaining self-respect instead of doing what my dopey heart wants to do. I call these the “Big Three Issues”, Home, Job, Romance. When one is down it’s hard enough to deal with. The trifecta is really throwing me for a loop and I’m hanging onto my besties’ hands for dear life right now.

I went back to Episode 2 of FemmeCast, about Break-ups, for support. I love having art about my struggles, because it reminds me of where I was and that I did get through it. Some of those little nuggets of wisdom are really helpful reminders in any sad/intense life BS moments. I still have my engagement ring and sometimes I wear it, both because it’s beautiful (I picked it out) and because it reminds me of how far I’ve come.

Of course, now I wear it on my middle finger. Joan Collins would insist.
