january is always a tricky month for a myriad of reasons. you have no money cuz christmas, you have no motivation cuz no more christmas, and you have to go back to work cuz goodbye christmas.  

but now it's february, so things will get better, right?  

call this an iphone dump, but these are some things i found hidden in my phone that represent the beginning of this slow year.

whenever i can sneak in a bath nowadays, i do. i never used to be a bath person but now i suddenly am? lush bath bombs are the reason, my friends. whenever you don't feel like showering, when you have no energy, bath. bomb.

but really, this has been my life lately. eating out is the norm. not because i don't want to cook at home, but because i'm not physically home to cook. it bums me out big time.  our apartment has been practically vacant because we've been getting to work in traffic like this ^

and remember that jazz album joe and i played on a little over a year ago? it's finally being released! this is the album art. i love it and it's getting me so excited for the release show we're doing! april 23-24th! it'll be amazing to get all those crazy musicians together again in one place.

these made me laugh out loud while i was sitting along in my car before a gig. so i had to save them.

i spent the past week playing the musical hairspray and i realized i haven't had that much fun playing a musical since the time i played chicago in high school.
