New Chapter

So it's been a LONG time since I've written. I have had a serious lack of creative juices due to a lot of change going on in this New Yorker's life.

First, I turned 27! Older and wiser? We shall see how the year unfolds, but let's hope so. As much as I love birthdays, and I did have a great one, they are bittersweet every year....but now that I'm 27, I decided it was time for my first blind date! Nothing to report home about but still a little milestone, I'd say.

I'm also acting in Christmas Carol for 13th Street Repertory in the city so have been in rehearsal mania but hey, it's off-off Broadway, baby! Unfortunately, holiday shows dictate not being able to go home for the real thing, but the city is probably the best place to be over Christmas with decorations and festivities galore. I'm learning to make homemade bread and with my Harry Connick Jr. crooning in the background, I shall survive.

And drumroll....this is my last week on the job as a full-time publicist. Starting this Friday, I will officially be a actor, struggling and starving and all that jazz. I'm very nervous as a lack of paycheck is obviously a force to be reckoned with, but I'm also crazily excited about the change of focus as I finally pursue my passion with full force. Don't worry-I'll be sure to update all the up's and down's as I know I'll have more time for writing here (especially with the encouragement of Single Edition!) while spending hours in audition holding rooms. I've been so grateful to have been unconditionally supported by my family, friends and co-workers as I make this transition into a new chapter, and I'm already discovering that new opportunities for income and creativity are starting to flourish. So a big thank you to all of you who have guided me to this new venture-and sent me home with your Olive Garden leftovers for sustenance! THAT is true love :-) I am so grateful for each of you!

It already feels great to be writing again-though strange to see all the chaos of the last weeks neatly wrapped up in a few paragraphs. A few more days at the desk here and then out into the unknown....but since I'm still a publicist at heart, a bit of shameless promotion:

Come see Christmas Carol! (children's version so perfect for families)

I'm On the Market & In the Moment!
