Yep, READY to rock! 🤘🏽: D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind (November 2021)



—Yep, we're READY to rock! 🤘🏽

Following a roadmap

—I feel like, even though I have a shit ton of work to do at the dayjob, I am ready for that too! 💥 I have all the rough plans typed out, so that I WON'T get lost in the shuffle of things. I am going to be shifting back and forth between many IMPORTANT priorities now, so I need to CONSTANTLY have that roadmap to keep me focused. With this, I don’t get as overwhelmed as I tend to get WITHOUT it, because I KNOW that there are ONLY so many things that can be accomplished at one time, so that pushes ALL the other things off my plate and lets me know what is MOST important right in this particular moment. 🥰🧘🏾‍♂️💐

Work ahead

—Today, we’re filming 2 more episodes, but I was so THRILLED to be able to have ALREADY edited and posted today’s episode! It gives me SUCH a relief NOT to have to film and rush to edit it within the same day! 🤷🏽‍♀️ That allows me to do whatever the fuck I want with the REST of the day! 🤷🏽‍♀️ You DON’T EVEN KNOW how freeing that is….. ESPECIALLY when I have work tomorrow! 😳😬😊 This way, if I DECIDE to do MORE work, then great. 👍🏽 But if I DECIDE to spend it walking the Earth with Bruce, then it’s NOT a problem. OR if I spend it on the couch, watching movies, then I DON’T feel like a slouch. 🤷🏽‍♀️

No short-changing here

What’s more is that I DON’T shortchange the episode either—by just trying to get DONE with it—because sometimes I have resorted to shortcuts that I HAVEN’T been proud of. —Just like with preparing for an episode, there is a certain level of care that’s necessary for it to END up being something that I am PROUD of long-term, so I REALLY like to approach the editing more casually—and NOT in a rush and NOT cranky or buzzed or hungry. By being able to edit on ANY other day BUT Sunday—and/or NOT to have to record AND edit in the same day—allows me that headspace to not only ENJOY the process more, but to put more thought and care into it too. 🥰😊🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾🥳 So, this week, we’re doing it right. 🙌🏾😊

Moved our business address. FINALLY.

—Okay, so I KNOW you ALREADY know what the outcome of this is, but I feel compelled to mention it. As I am finalizing my thinking on what needs to happen for these starter packs (https://bit.ly/BPJstreetteam ) to be fun and cool and sensible, I realize that it’s FINALLY time to move on to a P.O. Box that provides the level —and types—of service that we need for this new season. As far as I am concerned, the USPS has run me AWAY from using them. It’s NOT so much that they are just generally nasty and no-care-ish—because I had learned to stomach that 😳. It’s that we NEED to be able to use a street address other than our own home address and these fools ALWAYS hassled me that THIS isn’t possible with them—even though they HAVE a REAL street address! —I would just add “unit 1682,” so that the mail would DEFINITELY reach our box. For YEARS, they have told me that I CANNOT do this. 😳🤷🏽‍♀️🙄
