i don’t blog that often! and here’s why i think that’s so: i have too many thoughts in my head to sort through, and i’m self-conscious about putting information that’s so close to my heart out into the world for all to see. i think maybe that’s the purpose of blogging to begin with, but i’m still guarded about it. it’s a very exhibitionist and passive-aggressive thing at its heart, i think. but whatever. i participate. : )
still on tour with dora, and i’m climbing the walls. our first of two one-week layoffs starts in five days, and we’re all about to go over the edge. i couldn’t ask for a more amazing group of people to be touring with, but LORD do we all need a break. from each other, from the show, from traveling, from living on restaurant food, from suitcases, from whatever. break time.
been thinking a lot lately, and taking stock (of what i haaaave and what i haveeeen’t! for 64,000 tax-free dollars, name that show!). i’m so happy to be employed and to be a working actor — grateful beyond words. but the deal is that children’s theatre is not where i want to be. so i take this for what it is: a step in the right direction toward where i know i will eventually end up. realizing that about a job is tough stuff, and sometimes makes it a little harder to get through each day or even each show. but it is what it is and i know that there is more beyond this for me.
