things i often murmur to myself—
"easy, mae. easy." 
"cool your jets, mae. cool your jets." 
"let it go. let. it. go."
"it's no big deal. no biggie. smalls." 
"peace. peas. easy peasy." 

-i'm running errands in the summer heat today and might possibly attend a birthday party tonight, then a baby shower tomorrow. social anxiety on full force this weekend. 

-speaking of anxiety, i might need to cut down on coffee. four cups a day cannot be good...

-bathrooms have the greatest acoustics. i'm recording my first album in a bathroom.
