The Joys of Folding Underwear
Aloha to all, I trust your summers were spent well and you got nothing very productive done because that’s usually how I spend mine. If you’re someone who leaves summer reading to the last week of summer you know what I’m talking about. Actually this summer I was SURPRISINGLY productive. So, I thought I would tell you all about the joys of folding underwear. As you probably know this woman I like to call my mother went on tour for her MDNA album. As a summer job I decided to work in the wardrobe department. All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too. Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun. Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes. Thirty seconds to totally dress a sweaty dancer can be insane and provoke mucho anxiety. Doing this night after night was pretty cray, but I loved every minute of it!
Besides being able to travel the world and visiting all these amazing countries (my favorites were Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Turkey) it’s really a great experience to be able to work on a large production, traveling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose. I developed really good relationships with a number of people, not just in wardrobe but in other departments too. Dancers, singers, sound crew, catering, etc. To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.
Besides summer coming and leaving faster than you can say ohmygoditsaflyingpigwithgreenfeetandnobutthole, the school year has officially started for those you who are still students. When I get ready for school in the morning I move at a slothlike pace and music gets me slightly more motivated.
Here are a few fave songs that I would recommend:
-Lana Del Rey; National Anthem
-Yeah Yeah Yeah; Heads will roll ( A-Track Remix)
-Slightly Stoopid; Closer to the sun
-Peaches; Mommy Complex
-Neon Indian; Hex Girlfriend
-Fiona Apple; Criminal
-Friends; Friend Crush.
Okee so those are a few of my idontwanttogotoschoolbutiwillforcemyselfto sounds. As for back to school clothes my go-to article of clothing has been American Apparel’s circle scarf. It’s so versatile there are tons of ways you can wear it. Hope all of you guys had and are having a great start to your school year always remember to choose hugs not drugs because THAT’S always been MY moto.
Stay in school bitches and make sure you are getting proper nutrients all day urrday.
