When I returned home from the Oregon Country Fair, I spent almost a whole week working on my writing deadlines, public relations and promotions. A week spent in front of the computer, I had come full circle. From working in an office for a corporation after college, before stripping, to now working for myself, but back to sitting in front of a computer. It is irony, but I do love and vale my freedom!
I am still in shock at all that has happened this month. My column, “Strip Club Journals Unbound,” going national is the biggest opportunity I have experienced in years. The next few months will be defining in my career as a writer and it may even effect my sugar life as well. Who knows, because anything is possible. Accomplishing a dream is a great feeling!
Celebrating this accomplishment with others is very difficult. I do not know if it is me or if other people just cannot fathom my excitement because they have nothing to compare it to that is relatable. Having children and breeding is the closest thing I can compare my writing to. My writing is something I have created, manifested, nourished, and worked on without appreciation much like a parent with a child.
Perhaps, I should have a birthday party for my writing career so people will understand its importance to me?!? Smh
How would you celebrate? Please comment below I am open to ideas! ;)
After leaving Utah, I adventured to San Diego on my own for a vacation from vacations. It was nice to get away and have no agenda other than fun and sun! Especially sun, which I have been missing since Vegas. Being alone in a large city always teaches me an abundance about myself.
Along with lessons learned, I received great news while poolside in San Diego. I discovered my magazine is going to national publication. This is huge for my magazine column “Strip Club Journals Unbound”! However, there was something missing amongst all the excitement. I was alone in a beautiful city on the ocean with no one to share my big moment with. I have worked for years alone on this dream. So, I am very selective who I want to share my success with, but a partner in crime and/or life to share my adventures and successes with sounds extremely pleasant!
The sunrise in San Diego was beautiful at Seaport Village!!
I began the week going to Park City, Utah to visit visit Mr. U. It was a great time. Park City looks very similar to Oregon landscape wise, but the people are a breed of their own, literally. Overall, it was a nice trip with time to work on my writing and reading research.
Psa: Utah is not very vegetarian, gluten free, and/or organic friendly!
Last week was the best week I have had in a very long time. Everything seemed to line up and all started happening as I have hoped and prepared for. Dreams and goals became a reality.
I started the week with a trip to Park City, Utah, then continued to San Diego, and ended the week in Oregon at the Oregon Country Fair. Also to top it all off, while poolside in San Diego I was on my ipad and found out my column Strip Club Journals Unbound is going national!
What a great surprise! What a great week! What a year! What a life! I feel blessed and in shock, still…
Today, I took working at the strip club off to write my article for my column (Strip Club Journals Unbound) in Adult Quest Magazine. The topic I chose and/or it chose me is: How has the industry changed you(for dancers in the industry longer then five years)?
It has been difficult to find dancers willing to share their experiences. However, of the handful who have so far there is a commonality. Can you guess what this commonality is?
