Guys, gals and other non-binary pals! Check out this super sweet review written by Colin McGuire at Frederick Playlist about my EP “Soft Wrinkled Feelings.”
Tweet Tweet in the morning
Now listen here, before you get all wrapped up in that lovely review, I wanna tell you about how it made my day yesterday AWESOME! In the morning, I woke up to a tweet that read “@flo_petite with one of the best EPs of the year. It’s charming, it’s catchy, it’s smart and it’s irresistible.” I got so excited that I screamed, multiple times!
When I wake up, I usually wake up in a bad mood, roll over and flail around until I find my phone to get my endorphin fix while I stare at Instagram for 9 minutes straight until I finally get up and do something productive. But, due to this particular endorphin BOMB that was dropped on me, I jumped out of bed, ate my breakfast, and decided that I didn’t hate the sunlight and OPENED A WINDOW. I was actually… DRAWN TO THE OUTSIDE! The sunlight beckoned my name, saying “Flo! Your doctor says your vitamin D levels are low! Come outside, please!”
Anyways, I found out that the review was printed in the Frederick News-Post! So, my boyfriend/drummer and I took a drive there to get a couple copies to scrapbook or put on my fridge. Before leaving the house I got a notification from my daily mantra app that said, “You are on the right path.” WELL THANKS, UNIVERSE!
Once we made it to downtown Frederick, we headed to Starbucks and bought the last copy of the paper. Before finding the review, I first had to figure out how to navigate a newspaper. It’s like a puzzle! But, I FOUND IT! I stared at it for several minutes and felt, dare I say, giddy.
The Magical sun-voice
Afterwards, while walking around Frederick (on a strangely beautiful 70 degree day for November), I felt like a million bucks. I paid for parking and gave a homeless man 4 dollars in one dollar bills. “You are a mystical creature of happiness and light,” a voice says to me. I choose to think it’s the sun catching up with me from earlier. “Shine your light on all you pass in life. And treat yo’self!” I wanted to listen to the magical sun-voice, but I am still unemployed, so treating myself looked like a sandwich and a new bowl, made out of an old vinyl from a record shop, to be used as bedroom decor.
You Are Appreciated
All in all, it’s the best feeling in the world to have your art recognized and appreciated. It’s a feeling I hope you can all experience in your own time.
