It's okay to embrace your side hustle.
That project you open on your laptop during class.
That community you can't wait to get back to.
That thing-that-makes-you-come-alive...which might not be your job.
You're allowed to invite it into your time.
It's not pointless, a distraction, a minority, a setback. It can be - if you let it. It's up to you and only you to set that definition.
If it turns out to bring you so much joy you can't put it down and you think about it all the time and you smile when you talk about it and you pursue it solely for the sake of pursuing it - then LOVE IT. Love it all.
Call it your side hustle. Call yourself an entrepreneur. A technologist. A designer. A writer. You don't have to be making money or influence or followings to claim your own passion as your passion.
All you need, is love.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
