From the Desk of Carlotta Gurl: January 2017

VANCOUVER — As we face 2017, hopefully refreshed and recharged, let us take the time to look within ourselves and see what we want to accomplish in this New Year. I’ve never been one to stay steadfast in my resolutions, and these aren’t just the ones I make about eating better and achieving a healthier lifestyle after I throw all the turkey leftovers into a blender with a bottle of vodka and whipped cream; no, I’m talking about the honest to goodness resolutions where we really try to inherently change something about ourselves in an attempt to become better people. I almost always say this is the year I’m gonna take charge of my life and party less and work harder, and for the first hour I’m almost there. Then I revert back to form, pour myself a martini, and say, “Fuck it!” I applaud those people who flock in droves to the gym in the month of January and work out vigorously to slim down that post-holiday body, We can only aspire to do our best. Slow down, take a moment, see where you are and where you wanna be, and then go after it. After all: the only person we are truly competing with is ourselves. I too put a lot of pressure on myself at the beginning of the year to get more of the things I wanna get done, and I’m slowly learning as I get older to alleviate some of that pressure by going after what I want with a much more thought out strategy and clear head. But hey, this time last year I was able to pay off my hefty student loan and sock a few bucks away so dis bitch can still get it done when she needs to.

2017 marks the six-year anniversary of my show “Absolutely Dragulous” at the Junction nightclub. I’m overjoyed that this show has been able to go on this long and with such success. I have to credit all the amazing and talented entertainers in this diverse city for showcasing their unique and innovative performances. I’m a firm believer in evolving with the times and this helps take my show to new limits. It is very important to ensure that no matter how seasoned one is that transforming and keeping in tune with the world and trends is a priority because that is how to remain relevant. Always push your own limits. Until next time my dahlings, stay strong, stay loving, and most importantly…stay pretty.
