“I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.” — Anna Quindlen (from Smart, Pretty, and Awkward, reeeally loving this quote right now)
I haven’t had much creativity lately, at least not enough to warrant an entire blog post about something in my life. I’ve found it much easier to formulate blog posts based on recipes with little life bits thrown in over on my cooking blog, but sadly since all last week my house was without power–I haven’t done much in the way of cooking.
I could gush about the onset of a new romantic relationship in my life, but really, who wants to hear about that? And how the fact that I’m now openly admitting that that’s what it is, instead of skirting around by saying “flirtation” or “fling” is kind of a large step and I’m kind of scared despite still being in that wondrous butterflies-in-stomach-can’t-get-enough-of-each-other thing. I’m hoping this blog becomes a place to display my literary muscles, and showing a potential new job in the future a blog where they could easily find my mushy ramblings could prove to be embarrassing. So I’ll leave it at that and just let you know that I have no idea where this is going but that for the moment it’s making me smiley and that is more than welcome right now.
The play I was scheduled to be in this weekend has been postponed to January, so more details on that in the future. I have mixed feelings about the changed date, but in the end it’s better to move it than to cancel it altogether–going through all that hard work for nothing just wouldn’t feel right. The snow storm shut off power to our theater, and trying to throw a set and show together without knowing if we’d even have power for the performance would just be too nerve-wracking. I’m auditioning for a musical next week with a different theater company, and the thought of stepping outside my comfort zone is equal parts scary and exciting. Wish me luck!
Halloween was a success, a friend of mine had a party and I was able to be a skimpy Tinkerbell one more time, allowing me to feel a bit more comfortable spending so much on so little fabric. Lots of friends, I made food, and a big vat of punch. Lots of pictures. An overall success 🙂 I cannot believe it’s already November!
No longer going to Florida with the family thanks to complications with the storm, but I have some mini trips planned–this weekend to celebrate one of my best friends from college’s birthday in upstate NY, then the following weekend to Boston to have a Thanksgiving-esque dinner with more college friends, then hopefully an NYC trip with my theater friends. So I’m trying to do a bit of travel regardless?
In other news, the spambots sure know what I like! I had three trying to sell me Ugg boots in the comments I had in queue to be approved. Silly things.
