Oops, it’s after labor day and I’m wearing white

Hey there. How are you doing? I hope great. It’s been a minute since my last post. Between then and now a new month has started. It’s September 2022. I could bemoan the rapid passing of time but I think I’ll just deal with it and try to be in this moment now. I woke up at 4am today. When I wake up at 4am I will usually get in some exercise in some format. Today I got in some dance exercise. I made it fun by getting dressed up and filming some footage in the black and white color-block boots from this post.

adelamonica september 7 2022 3 My dance attire: a white tank bodysuit that I recently purchased from Fashion Nova and a pair of white pants that I purchased in 2017. I can’t quite recall from where I made the purchase of the pants. They weren’t always quite so tight as they are now.

The prop is just a curtain rod. I’d have loved to have had a nice glittery baton on hand but I did not.

And the point of all this jazz?

To live a little. I could have stayed in bed unable to sleep when I woke up at 4am this morning. Maybe had I stayed in bed I might have fallen back asleep which would have been a good thing. I definitely need to be getting more sleep. But I decided to get up and go get some exercise. And then I decided to turn it into a little video session. And you know what? It started off my day on a positive note. And even if it might seem stupid and pointless to the rest of the world, it was good self therapy for me.

We all only have one life to live, and however we live it is okay as long as it works for us and it isn’t against any law.

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.
