14 days and a lot of crazy.

14 days until I make the big move. The big move to New York City.

It's very surreal at this point. 2 weeks ago, I was leaving my summer stock in Indiana, ready for home and relaxation. Now I'm caught in this in-between state of my home in Missouri and my soon-to-be home in a different state. I can't tell you how many times I've had to catch my breath, just thinking about it.

I have to keep reminding myself that this is not the last time I will be home. I'll always have the ability to travel home. Just not as easily... and certainly not as cheap.

To recap the summer:

I went to a summer stock in Bloomfield, Indiana.
I met wonderful, creative, inspiring people.
I learned several things about myself as an actress and truly connected myself to a piece in a different way.
I expanded my abilities as a thespian and can now add 'props designer' to my portfolio.
I discovered and set new goals for myself and gained a lot of self-confidence.

In the next two weeks, I need to:

-organize my audition book
-re-read my notes from 'Nuts and Bolts' (a class on the business side of theatre)
-have a few panic attacks
-subscribe to Backstage

And relax.

Let's see if I can do it all.

Oh, and I want to learn a new language. Is that too much to ask?

  1. I want to learn a new language too!!!!!!

    I cannot believe you're moving in two days. I cannot believe I haven't seen you in four month. Forget visiting home, I want to visit your face. I miss you like crazy and I'm super sad that we're going to be half way across the country from each other.

    :) But it's nice to know I'm not the only person feeling all these crazy emotions. Thanks for reassuring me I'm not alone. I hope you have safe travels and not to many panic attacks. This skype date is happening soon. Say hi to all our New York friends for me!
