Episode 6: How to Leap (and land on your feet)
Alternate title: How the Worst of David Bowie can teach us the best about ourselves! *recorded in Berlin, Germany*
Featuring my big sister, Shakrah Yves, who recently went from working as a seamstress at Beach Blanket Babylon in San Francisco to a burgeoning computer coder in Berlin. To say I am proud would be a massive understatement. I am changed by HER decision to change.
We pose the question: Are you daring enough to change everything? To give up the comfort you know and take a leap to a new, strange land?
What are the hardships you are willing to endure to make this earth-shattering change in your life? How will you dust yourself off and move forward? Clue: Forging close relationships and cultivating self love is key.
On this episode: Let's get real. We totally talk about the serious stuff that comes with this kind of life change, but there's also a lot of laughing, giggling, joking and just being sisters. I hope you enjoy this very real peek into our special (glittery) relationship.
And yes, this one’s recorded direct from Shakrah's kitchen in East Berlin with special guests David Bowie and Ertha Kit!
Plus: Bad Berlin haircuts! Brogrammers! The struggle of the modern day jazz singer is real! Glueing rhinestones onto rhinestones! How we realized we are VERY American after all! Bonus: Cat saliva! Meditation! Drone fish! And so much more!
Hey. I might even sing a little.
Huge thanks to Shakrah Yves for opening up and allowing her annoying lil sis to ply her with random questions that are neither here nor there (as always).
Plus, Hayley's band Hayley and the Crushers is on tour now!
See 'em live:
