Things have gotten Crazy….



I know you guys have thought I probably fell off the end of the world.. but I haven’t.  I just been extremely busy.   Between working as a teacher full-time, singing at the bar every weekend, managing the marketing, events and advertising at the bar, doing side singing gigs, learning guitar..and having a boyfriend…. life has just got in the way of my blogging.

I honestly never thought that I would have a life this full at this age.   I just keep getting blessed with opportunities and I am afraid to turn them down.   I get job offers everyday….. business partnerships offered…. performance gigs…. teaching gigs….. it is just pouring with opportunities.  I have even started breaking into the Shanghai performing arts scene.  I have seen several plays and met many actors and been to several casts parties.  I have met so many amazing people…. I just cannot take it all in fast enough.

I know I havent been keeping you guys updated…and that is my fault…. but did you ever feel you should just grab everything you can .. before it disappears?    I have that kind of mind-set…. I keep thinking that this land of opportunity isn’t gonna last forever… so I better soak it all in while I can.   So…. thus explains my lack of blogging for the past few months.

I guess I have learned a lot about myself and the people around me.

It is kind of hard to explain living in China… time goes by so quickly…. in the blink of an eye…. 5 years … then 10 years have passed…. it like you are living in a time warp of some sort.

There are so many things going on… that you just lose track of time.

I believe that is what has happened to me….many people have asked me how I can lead such a busy life…. and I cant explain it…. I just thrive under pressure… and I like to be over whelmed with things to do.   I learn from these things.

I will give a brief overview of the last few months:

1. Currently the band is doing well… we are becoming more stable and are learning to flow with each other better.

2. I have been promoted to the management team of the bar…due to some changes that need to be made to improve quality

3. I have been learning to play guitar and can actually play some basic rock riffs from songs.

4. I have made new friends in Shanghai and try to visit them when I can .. to see them perform in plays.. last few I saw were, Cabaret and Rosemary’s baby.

5. I am getting a little burned out at my day job as a teacher.. I think it is because I want to do more things and it takes up a lot of time.

6. I am getting side solo gigs now .. that pay pretty well… so I am bringing in extra funds….

7. I have been ask to help market a new chat app.  I have been a little too busy to help too much .. but I am still considering that.

8. I have been asked to be a part of an outsourcing accounting firm that helps foreigners set up business in china.

9. And…. I have a new live in boyfriend that is pretty amazing.   He is a bodybuilding with an amazing dragon tattoo across his chest and ..treats me like a queen.   He an orphan … which made me learn a lot about the life of orphans in China. (not pretty) .. that’s another blog.

So things have been a little hectic… but I am trying to slow it down… and get back to the basics…. which start with my blog.

I am going to force myself to write every week…. to keep you guys updated on what is going on ….. on this side of the world.

until next time…..

    I am so happy to find this blog. You have really helped me to drown out the naysayers who constantly warn me of the dangers of forgoing stability for my dream of living abroad.

    I like your blog. I love the idea of an American Black woman in China. I have recommend to some Black women ( who were complaining about Black) men)to look out side of our race for a mate, the respond I got was fear or them thinking I was crazy. You are proving me right. Your wedding photos? are beautiful. But I am confused because you said you have a new boyfriend? Did I miss something? Supporting you 100% Anthony
