yes, I know it’s been 2 weeks since my last post. I’ve been busy.
there is much to report (and I will do so as quickly as possible) — but first, this:
after years and years and years of complaining about our substandard microwave (that I’m not kidding you, takes TRIPLE the amount of time to cook food than any other microwave I’ve ever used including old decrepit ones in office kitchens), a big truck will shortly be bringing NOT ONLY a new microwave to our homestead … but also a new fridge, a new stove, and a new dishwasher.
it’s like Christmas in May, y’all.
seriously, I’m really excited about this, and it’s not even “my” kitchen (per se). my parents have been wanting to replace the appliances for so long … and thanks to the ridiculously amazing generosity of my dearly departed grandma, that dream has become a reality. it’s actually quite apropos, since my grandma’s big thing was cooking mass quantities of food for her relatives on a daily basis. what better way to honor her memory than to cook on appliances she helped us acquire. big ups, Situ.
in other news, this past weekend was quite bittersweet; we closed the show I was performing in, and it’s been hard to think that I won’t get to see some of those kats on a regular basis any more. I wanted the chance to get to know a few of them better — but because of my own socially-awkward failing, I didn’t have a chance DURING rehearsals and the run … so now I’m faced with either waiting until that special day I get cast in a show with them again (could happen!), or do I take the chance and try to keep a friendship going on Facebook and the like. I’ll probably try to do both.
things are interesting on the job front, but I’ll leave it at that for the time being. if I don’t sign up for those voiceover websites this week, I’ll kick my own ass … so that’s the big goal for these first 7 days of May. I just keep getting this feeling that there’s something really big out there for me — maybe not a full-time cubicle job? — and I have to give it a chance. I’ve also decided that I positively MUST remove any stumbling blocks (read: my weight) that are keeping me from being considered for lead roles in musicals. I know I’m talented enough, so that must be the only thing hindering me. I’d like to be heard for once … y’know?
