The Hustle and Bustle

Updated: Jul 5, 2019

When I moved to a big city, I expected the excitement and thrill that you see on tv.

The glamorous parties, star-studded events, and fabulous friends.

Though, my life is no episode of Sex in the City.

Sure, yeah I might strut down the city streets.

Talking in some inner monologue. (a little out loud too)

Yet, I’ve had less of the bustle of city-life and more of the hustle

I’m either at rehearsal acting in a show or stage managing some other small production

Not to mention dealing with customers at the coffee shop

At the end of the day, I barely have enough energy to take off my make-up

Nevertheless, be a social butterfly

Nobody gives instructions on how to juggle work and play.

I mean I never knew I would one day hate the smell of coffee.

But I do.

It just reminds me of

the annoyingly demanding and particular people

Who order things like, “nonfat soy latte with extra foam and a triple shot of espresso.”

So in order to have some resemblance of an actual life, and to not go insane.

The next time my castmates ask me out for a drink.

I will take them up on the offer.

Cause all work and no play makes me a dull girl.

Sincerely yours,

Just Another Millennial
