Today I am listening to Mort by: Terry Pratchett while I pack nearly everything to move to Columbia City this weekend. It’s awesome, the story. Recommendation from my bandmate– love it– so imaginative totally helps with this mundane task of putting everything I own in boxes.
Yesterday I took a ride on the sweetest cruiser, like riding on a cloud before Basphite went playing out at Pacific Place……
I am sooooo glad I found a job where I get to be OUTSIDE and contributing to the economy that sources local foods, that is a winning based economy and I am so grateful to be a part of it. Hype local food, and all hail peace in Korea. This is a good day. Basphite finished mixing our first EP and that will be up on Bandcamp asap! Woot baby woot.
Another radd Seattle happening coming up is Sunset Labs at Beacon Forest Food Farm, ya I’m moving to so near to there, totally looking forward to pitching in there and growing it up.

These Freelancer Tips came from Collective Chemistry where I was a contributing member when I first arrived in Seattle.
1. Don’t underestimate your current skills. 2. The moment you become uncomfortable is the moment you start to grow. 3. Word-of-mouth, on its own, is not a marketing strategy.
4. “…people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” — Leonardo da Vinci
5. If you want to manage and grow a successful freelance business over the long run, you have to reinvent yourself, your services, and your vision. 6. The first step of change is to become aware of your own BS. 7. Masters do not do 4,000 things. They do a few things 4,000 times. 8. “Success is doing what you want, where you want, when you want and with whom you want, as much as you want.” 9. Understand your most valuable asset: time. 10. Failure is just feedback.
