(I work almost every weekend as a hostess in Manhattan) I either start work at 8am or 11a so I’m not able to write then BUT did ya know I average 11 hour work days?
Insane right!? What are the chances for real though.
I usually work 8.5 hours from 8:30a-5pm with my total commute being 2.5 hours for the day. So 8.5+2.5=11!
I started this weekend job recently in February solely to pay for my new music quarters office in Brooklyn in an attempt to get out of my own way in regards to working from home. I got so mf depressed and felt like I was losing my mind. (Which so happens to be a song I wrote as well) but not in regards to the severe depression and full on self sabotage.
So, (even though residing in dope Jersey City) your songstress MaHJ is back in Brooklyn (originally from BK, NY) and now just like one of my biggest male idols Jay-Z!!!
MaHJ is on that J & Z train to Marcy most weekdays to arrive at her music quarters to continue working on her craft in bringing to life the sounds, stories and hopefully inspiring musical songs and poems about this journey...
A journey where a 4 year old girl who started to sing about a tea pot (I LOVE TEA NOW; go figure) grew up continuing to sing and write with a big dream of making it big with these music passions while almost completely losing her way many a terrifying times due to bigger obstacles...
But the real take away is gratefully through MUSIC not only found a reason to keep on living and singing but she also found a road to HEALing, JOY and her purpose from all the adversity because of it.
So please Stay Inspired but also StayTuned cause these precious eleven minutes are up for today.
