I Went To Worldfest And Got A Freelance Business Idea

My boyfriend and I sometimes watch Criminal Minds on the couch while we play on our phones and stuff.

He mentioned Worldfest, I assumed because he saw it on his Facebook feed. It was in Downtown Louisville. We decided to go at 4pm. It was 9am. My boyfriend fell asleep. He does that sometimes. He works a lot. I don’t work as much. I’m not cut out for working full time in a traditional job. I need to make my own hours. Do my own thing. I’ve been thinking about a freelance business idea for a while – a freelance personal assistant thing. I’m trying to get that going. (more…)

I Watched The Eclipse and Read A Book About Money

I have weird eyes.

My vision is awful. The eclipse was terrifying for me. One wrong look or turn of the head up and bam, there goes my vision. Well, probably. I don’t really know. I don’t really look up at the sun all that much. It doesn’t seem like a very productive use of my time. (more…)

I Went To A Bar And Now I’m Self-Employed

I went out over the weekend to the Highlands neighborhood here in Louisville.

I made a new friend at one of the many gay bars there, called Chill Bar. It has this enormous tree out in the patio with Christmas tree lights wrapped around it. We sat at the bar around the tree and drank Budweiser and Guinness, people watched, and talked about our creative ambitions. He’s a musician. He also has a day job, something with pipe organs. I talked to him about how I’m just really not that good at traditional jobs and just sort of want to write things. Basically, I’d rather be self-employed. Actually, I need to be self-employed.

People Watching: I Went To Shakespeare In The Park

Central Park in Louisville does this Shakespeare festival every year.

There’s an amphitheatre in the park that they use throughout the season. The park is near the University of Louisville campus. I’ve walked by it many times while I was a student there. I never really went to a performance, though. It’s on a local event list over on Louisville Magazine, spanning from August 9th-August 13th. I figured it was time to actually go see one. If nothing else, it will help me do some people watching because I’m a writer and like to do people watching. Usually, the being-a-writer part is just the excuse to be nosy, but since I’m working on some fiction for my blog, I thought an actual people-watching exercise while I was out somewhere would be good. And if it didn’t work, there was always the performance. (more…)

City Life: I Spent The Day Walking Around Aimlessly

Going out by myself is hard for me. Really hard.

Not that I don’t have friends for going out. I do. But I’ve noticed as I try to make more friends that it’s really one of the most difficult things for me in my adult life. And living in a city, there’s no excuse as to why I don’t have more friends. I used to think it was related to just how awkward and introverted I am. Now I just think it’s hard because making friends is not as easy as eating or playing video games or watching movies. I want to get my city life going. People who live in cities on TV have friends. Like in Friends. There’s 6 of them. I know Louisville is no New York, but it’s still a city. There are more people in cities, so I should be able to meet more people and have more friends. (more…)
