Monica wears Fashionova Keyshia Midi Dress in Rust

This is a pretty sad day for a lot of people who have lost loved ones due to the tornadoes that ripped through the Midwest and southeastern US overnight. I’m located in Illinois myself. It’s difficult sometimes to know how to appropriately give thanks for your fortune in not being affected by a tragedy when so many others were affected whether due to losing their life or being the loved one of someone who lost their life. I always try to remember that every day each of us is potentially next to go or next to lose somebody we love. So I try not to dwell too much on the fact that life can be sad and tragic. Instead, I try to just accept that life is what life is. I think it’s important to keep on going and pursuing/practicing calm and acceptance. Because you don’t know when is going to be ‘your’ last moment.

I’ve not been blogging here much in recent years because life is what it is. And I seldom have anything that I sincerely want to share. But I thought I would try to start blogging again and see if I can get my life back on track.

I’m still doing music. You can find my music website at adelamonica.com. I’m anticipating a new single release in early 2022. My second album didn’t really do any better than my first. I’m still struggling to get my music heard, but it’s all good. It’s my passion. I love doing it. I love the music I make. I workout to my own music and I always have fun. And if that’s all that it will ever be, that will have to be enough.

In case anyone is curious, the dress I’m wearing is from Fashionova. I bought it for $14.99 back in October. The earrings are from a set of clip on earrings I purchased from Amazon. The wig is just a cheap straight middle part wig that I purchased at a local beauty supply store for way more money that it’s worth.

Hope everyone is doing great. And for those of you who are chasing dreams that depend on other people being interested in the works you create, I wish you great success. Because I know it’s hard when you put your work out there and everybody ignores you and ignores your work. You’ve got to be really tough and you have to love what you do and be willing to do it for yourself and be satisfied with that.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
