I’ve officially sold out of my first batch of t-shirts! Just dropped off the last few packages and, in my humble musician way, am celebrating with a drip coffee at Bongo East. It’s a small accomplishment I suppose, selling through a couple dozen shirts, but it’s my first-ever shirt goddammit. It feels good.
Social media has a way of convincing us that micro-successes aren’t enough - someone always has a cooler highlight reel. That they’re also huddled in a corner somewhere, hopelessly comparing themselves to others, is little comfort, because insert well-documented reason why social media insidiously distorts self-worth.
Today, I did a thing, an actual thing involving real people. Tangible progress towards a goal. I think today Instagram remains unopened, and I’ll sip my coffee in understated triumph.
