the happenings...

i am not sure how i've let two weeks pass between posts when SO MUCH IS HAPPENING that is blog-worthy! like...

~the beau and i celebrating our one year anniversary this past weekend (woo!). we spent Saturday in Annapolis at the Annual Boat Show (i wanna boat) then headed to the Eastern Shore (Maryland). i *love* the Eastern Shore -- a nice change of pace from busy city life. we had a lovely time celebrating this Very Important Date. ONE YEAR. i can't believe it's been a year! and yet, in many ways it feels like much longer. i've never been one to publicly gush (especially on this blog -- mostly b/c when i was having a hard time in the area of "love" and i would read a blog or something gushy about a person "in love" then i would want to punch them a little bit. and i don't want you to punch me) -- so keeping that in mind, i'll play it cool here and just say that we had an amazing time together, full of lots of laughter and love and reflections on the past year, and many convos about how lucky and blessed we feel, etc., etc., and...sigh...{ok, a baby gush here}...really, i have just never been so happy -- i feel SO SO happy. and lucky. how did i find this amazing man?? seriously??! {okay, gushing over} :)



~our "celebrity" sighting while dining at Scossa in Easton, MD. who knew that a small town on the Chesapeake Bay housed the likes of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld? apparently, they do. and we had front row seats to their dining experience w/ their wives on Saturday night. kinda surreal.

~my acting and art therapy classes, which are coming to a close this week. while i am definitely reveling in the thought of actually have a free evening or two next week and beyond, i am a bit sad to see them end. i have learned so much and now have more respect than ever before for both actors (acting is hard!) and art therapists. there were no big 'A-HA!' moments regarding art therapy or my possible journey into that field someday, but i feel incredibly well-informed now and have a better sense of what it is all about. also, i got an inside look at School of Visual Art's art therapy program (where i took the class) and have to say, i'm impressed.

~and...remember that audition i mentioned (see previous post)? and the fact that i didn't get anything, but thought i scored pretty well all things considered? well, turns out, my score has qualified me to be cast in an ensemble/class at the vocal school/theater where the scholarship competition was held. i'm told it will be a "unique and intensive class experience" with "training that is centered around the creation of a world-premiere, off-broadway musical" that debuts next summer, meaning all participants of the class are cast in the off-broadway show upon completion of the school (according to the email invitation i got, which was then confirmed by a phone call i made, followed by lots and lots of research just to make sure that this was, in fact, FOR REAL!!!!). looks like it is! and i start next Monday! i am a bit dazed right now and have NO IDEA what to expect, which is putting my emotions all over the map at the moment -- a mix of excitement and giddiness, along with occasional pangs of mild terror and nervousness. but mostly i just feel incredibly honored and fortunate. i mean, this is why i came to New York in the first place, right? to have adventures and explore different artistic opportunities, take risks, grow as an artist/musician, etc...and i am pretty sure this would fall under the category of FRICKIN' HUGE adventure/growth opportunity. so, yeah...i'm going to go for it :)

i think there is more i could add, but i keep promising myself that i WILL NOT be so long-winded on these blog posts! and yet here we are, way way down at the bottom of the page.

so -- until next time. (which i promise will be sooner than two weeks. well, i *hope*).
