Waking up at 11:15 a.m.

Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Raisins, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.

At the MOCA with DEJA sound checking and doing a mini run-through of the set.

Toasted PB&J. Potato Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers.

As soon as I’m done teaching I’m at the MOCA suiting up for the big Wall show with DEJA. The auditorium isn’t as packed compared to last February’s performance. But there’s a good 75 people in the seats. We put on the show the best we can. We had an entourage of girls run around the aisles dancing or acting during the whole show. It really added to the scenes. During some moments you can feel the intensity much more than usual. My mom and a fairly new student of mine, Anne, were in the back watching the whole thing.

Afterwards, enjoying Jamaican catering: Chicken, Plantains, and Mac n’ Cheese.

Back home.

In Ana’s bedroom spending time with her and the cat. I half joke around with her all the time about having kids.

“So I’ve decided 40 is the deadline age for me to have kids. You game?” I ask.

We need to have a house first she always says. My goal is to keep building the Music Makers business for the next year. Then attempt to buy a home. My thing is I keep interacting with all these kids at lessons and realize that none of them are my kids. I really do want to have one or two of my own. I feel I’ve been prepped being a teacher and raising a cat from a kitten.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
