Been all sortsa busy these days.
My biggest client that went away just came back with a staggering amount of work for me to do. The only issue’s that everything’s due in three weeks. But when your life is eat what you kill, y’gotta hustle when y’can.
It’s funny but the last time I wrote about taking every gig that comes in was almost exactly a year ago. October-December’s usually my busiest time of year so the hustle begins again.
So early last Friday, was down in the West Village at places where handbags cost more than my mortgage. Came back that night and needed to unwind so I cooked up some Greek Kotopoulo Skorthato. It reminds me of my childhood cause I grew up with a lotta Greeks.
Usually my year begins in September but this year, Fall came late. Feels like the year – and everything else – is starting again.
Speakinga which, just found out that my 20 year high school reunion just happened. 20 years.
Didn’t know anyone there really, and I had all of that work, so never bothered going. Being a nobody in high school’s fine, I think. Being a nobody 20 years later’d be a lot worse.
There was this girl named Grace that made my life a living hell when I was a kid. Found out later, her family life was pretty bad. When I heard Plato’s saying, Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle, I thought of her.
Wonder if she ever found any peace or just continued to be hard and mean.
As for me, well, I got my pad. I got my people. I got my poison. Got everything I wanted.
Also got deadlines so catch you Wednesday?
