D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: Book-Love Drug? 📚 (January 2024)

Crisis much?

—-Fuck! My granny is living forever; what’s to make me think that I won’t?!

—Yep, you caught me RIGHT in the middle of a fucking existential crisis. —I’m at the intersection between feeling ABSOLUTELY wonderful—because the book is SERIOUSLY about to be alive in the world—and awful—because here I am planning my retirement from my day job. 😳😬🤷🏽‍♀️

How to have a healthy relationship with social media (as a D.I.Y. Rock Star):

First world problems?

—I KNOW that half the world thinks our life is perfect and we have no woes. 🤷🏽‍♀️ And the OTHER half thinks that it’s ALL a shitshow—THEIR lives and ours. But, as you can tell, it’s somewhere in the fucking middle. 😬🤷🏽‍♀️

Are you respecting the seasons when it comes to building your creative empire?

Enjoy it while it lasts….

AND knowing that life is a cycle of ups and downs—and that it’s SHORT—allows me to appreciate what we’re building here. 🥰 —Yes, I never TRULY have a day “off,” but there’s a peace in my soul, knowing that is uniquely us with no fucking filter and that defies the conventions for pleasing the algorithm gods. —You KNOW that folks have told us that we’re “doing too much” and that we should “choose a lane,” but at the core of who we are is creating boatloads of things. —In fact, THAT'S the essence of what it means to be “Prejippie.” —So, whether it’s mixing genres in songs, or simultaneously running a blog, a YouTube channel, AND podcast, we are ALWAYS looking for a vehicle in which to pour our creative energy into.

Book-ish, baby! 📚

And it JUST so happens that the book is the LATEST incarnation of this same ethos. Will anyone buy it? We have no fucking idea. 🙄🤷🏽‍♀️ But we’re okay with that. Because, AGAIN, while we LIKE to make money, THAT'S not going to be the motivation to do ANYTHING. Focusing on bringing our art into the world is our goal, so as long as THAT need is being met, then we’re good. 👏🏾
