Monthly Report – Dec 2016

Summary of Dec 2016 –

December to me only means two things – 

  1. My birthday
  2. Drunk Christmas parties

As a result the info is low in terms of gigging but the progression forward in terms of next years festivals and tour has come along leaps and bounds. This is largely because I’ve not been socialising at all and I’ve been staying in doing admin (rock n roll).

Truth be told I’ve really enjoyed doing these (even if they’ve been a bit of a pain to product some times). Having a level of accountability for my job (ie people can publicly see what I am doing) has pushed me in the moments when I’d rather be doing ANYTHING else. Also it has kept me feeling a sense of purpose and drive as I feel like I am achieving stuff. So good news (for the average of 20+ people who read these the day they go live and nearly 100 over the course of an average month) I will be carrying them on into 2017. You can find a list of all reports I’ve ever done here. Merry Christmas (or whatever holiday floats your boat). And a happy new year. See you in 2017. x
