my burlesque life equation

March is thus far the busiest month of the year so it's essential
to keep in mind how blessed I am to have such fabulous careers.
In order to keep my creative careers continually moving in an
effective direction, I rely on rather uncreative formulas to keep
myself focused.
 
writing 8 counts of songs + choreography + costuming + rehearsal + scheduling dates + 
meetings + promotion + sewing + traveling + packing + organizing costumes + performing + recording in the studio = burlesque & singing

But what are the equivalents to the variables in the equation? Because from the 
outside it all looks rather boring, but when I break it down, I'm able to truely
recognize how lucky I am to be able to do what I do.

choreography < finding ways to express emotion through my body, 
communicating in the most beautifully basic way. 
costuming < working with the most luxurious fabrics and the most 
opulent objects simply so they can be wrapped around my body.
It's couture of my very own. 
rehearsal < a moment in time to simply better if not perfect myself
and/or my craft, to delve myself into what I love to do. And when
rehearsal is with others, I get to work on creating an energy that
we will collectively bring on stage. And laugh a lot. 
meetings < Drink cocktails with the girls, dream about our goals, 
discuss the future so we keep moving forward, helping each other to
be the best and want the best. 
promotion < placing posters across media, basically saying, "I'm 
proud of what I am a part of, and I hope you'll be there to share that
with me."
travling < Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Los Angeles...not only do I 
get to take beautiful road trips, but I get to jet set. I get to see lovely
places. Dreaming of soon going to....New York, Paris, London, San
Francisco. 
All of it is supported by creative conversations, inspiration boards,
cocktails, reading, writing, singing, melodies, instruments, music,
literature, dance, and most of all.... fans.
